Lucile's Creole Cafe Coming Soon to Evans Avenue

Breakfast lovers, fans of New Orleans cuisine and residents near the University of Denver will be excited to know that Lucile's Creole Cafe will be opening a new location at the corner of Evans Avenue and Ogden Street, in a building that was formerly Home and Hearth Outfitters (a fireplace and outdoor grill store).

This will be the sixth outpost of Lucile's, which got its start in a Victorian mansion in Boulder more than thirty years ago. Lucile's is well known to Denverites, who still form lines outside the Logan Street location every weekend for beignets, biscuits and shrimp and grits.

The new Lucile's is expected to open in late summer or early fall this year.
