Lucile’s Is Getting a New Look: Restaurant Closing, But Not for Good
You may want to cancel your brunch plans for next week — if you're planning on going to Lucile's, that is.
In a Facebook post, Lucile's Creole Café announced that its Fort Collins location is closing. I'll give you some time to cry now.
Just kidding. There's no need to freak out, as the closure is only temporary — the restaurant's famous beignets and Bloody Marys will return to the Choice City soon.
According to the post, the Fort Collins locale will be closed for renovations from November 1 to 8. We aren't sure why they're renovating, but it'll surely be worth the wait.
Named after Lucile Richards, the eatery hit the Colorado restaurant scene in 1980. Tony Hanks, a Louisiana native, has been running the Choice City's location at 400 S. Meldrum St. since 1996.
The restaurant is famous for its Cajun and Creole cuisine — so famous, in fact, that there's even a song written about it.

Lucile's also took home Townsquare Media's NoCo's Best Breakfast Award in 2021, beating out Doug's Diner and the Silver Grill Café.
If you can't keep your Cajun cravings at bay, you can visit the restaurant's other locations in Littleton, Denver, Longmont, or Boulder.
