Occupying one of Boulder’s quaint Victorian houses, Lucile’s Creole-style café is an unmissable feature of the town’s breakfast scene, both for the kitchen’s home-style cooking and the house’s iconic pale yellow paint job. Like the café’s exterior, Lucile’s breakfast specialties include various Creole takes on eggs Benedict from the eggs Sardou with creamed spinach and Gulf shrimp to the eggs New Orleans with fried eggplant slices and Creole sauce. Other southern specialties are the pain perdu-style French toast and, of course, shrimp and grits. For those craving a more Boulder-like morning meal, the ‘totally organic breakfast’ features spinach, tofu, eggs and ginger, while the eggs Pontchartrain revolves around fresh pan-fried mountain trout.
