As I'm walking through the parking lot to Lucile's, I hear two ladies talking as they walk back to their cars, in a conversation that goes something like this "blah blah blah sugar overload..."
"Sugar Overload? I must be in the right place."
"You are, just make sure you get the pecan syrup with your beignet."
And that was my introduction to breakfast at Lucile's Creole Cafe. After an unsuccessful attempt a few months ago to go to their Denver location (a very long line), it was a pleasure to pop into their Littleton location, right along the Platte River Trail and head straight for a table, chicory coffee and giant beignets.
|The beignet in question - with pecan syrup|
|And this is the "Carlin County" aka biscuits and gravy|
|Their biscuits are huge! |
The spoon and the syrup caddy are just for reference.
Do you like southern or Creole breakfasts? What's your favorite dish?
