Foodie Find: Lucille's Coffee Hops & Vine
Oct 11, 2018 09:04AM
Much to the glee of coffee connoisseurs, Folsom’s been hit with a new caffeine getaway. Similar to European cafés, Lucille’s not only specializes in the third-wave movement of artisanal coffee but also serves up local beers and fine wines with a full breakfast and lunch menu. Needing some sustenance, I headed over to meet a friend (who has already become a regular). Filled with plush chairs, the aromas of freshly ground coffee, and indie rock pumping through the speakers, I instantly discovered why people come in to grab a quick coffee and end up staying for hours. Sensing my indecisiveness as I looked over the vast menu, my friend recommended the Turkey & Provolone Sandwich with a side of their scratch-made Macaroni Salad. Toasted on a flaky croissant bun and stuffed with thinly sliced turkey, provolone cheese, fresh tomatoes, and lettuce—with a slathering of roasted red pepper aioli—this was a classic sub with a mouthwatering twist. Paired alongside a pint of Boochcraft’s Grapefruit Hibiscus Heather, a kombucha/ale hybrid that exploded with the refreshing taste of grapefruit, I was more than content with my picks and have since followed in my friend’s footsteps and become a Lucille’s regular too. 25055 Blue Ravine Road, Suite 100, Folsom, 916-294-7472, lucillescoffeehopsvine.com.
