This is a great place for breakfast/lunch! We walked across the Brooklyn Bridge, and kept going to the Carroll Gardens area of town, and stopped in for lunch. We had heard about the pancakes, and they were delicious. Crispy outside and slightly sweet and tender...More

What a fantastic spot for breakfast and I'm sure lunch would be great too. Definitely will be back. I had the special fresh tortillas with sunside eggs, avocado, beans. My wife had the mushroom omelette. Both tasted wonderful. Services was prompt and very polite.

As my daughter lives in Brooklyn, and we live 3000 miles away in France, we have made this unpretentious, small bistro-style Café Luluc 'our place' every time we get together. We've enjoyed many a wonderful meal here (both brunches and dinners) with it's lively atmosphere...More

We had dessert here. The bread pudding and coffee were ok. The white wine was average at best and disappointing. From looking at the food being served at tables around us, it looks like regular American diner fare.They have a very cute patio out back.
