Cora's for Brunch

Anyone ever heard of Cora's went to the location by Skydome. Line up out the door but lovely breakfast. Had Cora's special breakfast. Fresh fruit and crepe and bacon and eggs and all the trimmings and the price not bad. Was wondering if anyone else had been there and what they thought of it. It wasnt until my friend from Quebec told me about this place as these eaterys are all over Quebec and heading out west of canada as well..Tour boi

  1. I've been to Cora's tons of times and love it. Sure, it's a chain, but they're good at what they do and it's ideal for a group - everyone can go as healthy or indulgent as they want.

    For healthy, I'm a fan of their fruit plate. For indulgent, they make an omelet wrapped in a crepe served with a bunch of sides... YUM.

    1. Been to Cora's in Ottawa, it is a very nice atmosphere, with actual chefs in the kitchen. Therefore the price is high for breakfast food. Also I know this location and the owner contribues to many charities and is community focused. Overall good quality food and good business sense.

      Cheers from Ottawa

        actual chefs?

        i tried to have them remove the bologna from one of the skillet combos in a kingston location (fried bologna does not sound appealing) and was promptly told it was impossible as they arrived prepackaged for heating.

        they do however have creton on the menu which is a nice quebecois bite.

          Fried bologna is great chow! It needs to be thin enough that the edges get crispy and then you have it in a sandwich -- thick slices of homemade white bread with yellow mustard.

          Ohhh, my roots are showing!

            Okay it may not be chef's all around, but from what I understood the restaurant was the creation of a chef. They must have evolved into a chain and are now purchasing pre-packaged items, etc. Either way I think the place is overpriced for breakfast foods.

      2. I had breakfast at Cora's in Brampton with a large group over the summer. Good service, and good food. Nothing fantastic, but a solid breakfast joint. Inexpensive to boot.

        1. Have been to Cora's in Ottawa and in Halifax, although they just opened a location here in the GTA, so I'm sure I'll get there sooner than later.

          The crepe with Bananas and chocolate inside is heavenly. That was all I ate all day that day. Coffee is mediocre, but the milkshakes and smoothies looked appetizing.

          1. I've been to the Cora's location near the sky dome and I had a good breakfast. I went to the one in Woodbridge, and it was the most awful thing ever! How can people screw up bacon and eggs!?!?!? Anyways, the potatos were raw, the eggs overcooked, and they brought me and my mom dirty cups! When we asked for clean cups, the waitress looked insulted and was very rude. (i mean, I am not going to drink from a cup with lipstick stains on it!) Anyways, I dont think I'll be going back...I've had much better breakfasts elsewhere.
