Cora's - worth visiting?

Cora's just opened in my neighborhood and I would like to give it a try. What's best to order?

  1. Is that the breakfast place? We ate at the one in Belleville. Not bad. Not great. ...

    1. Cora's is ok. It's always busy and its expensive for what you get.

      But they use a lot of fresh fruit which is nice. If you want crepes, which is their specialty, there are better places.

        1. I really enjoy the eggs benedict with brie and mushrooms....very yummy. If you're looking for just a bacon and egg breakfast get the Cora's Special 2-eggs, 4 slices bacon, 1 sausage, a slice of ham, homefries, 1 small crepe/pancake and toast. Very filling! The fresh fruit is usually very good too....most breakfasts come with either a fruit garnish (2-3 pieces) or a good amount of fruit.
          I also enjoy the's a pork meat pate from quebec. I like to spread it on toast. They serve it with a side of mustard which I don't bother with.
          I'd recommend going...I've always enjoyed it. It recently came to my home town, so now I don't have to wait for my summer trips to Belleville to enjoy a good breakfast!

          1. Truthfully, I think it's hard to go wrong there... it's standard breakfast food. As one of the other posters said, not bad but not great. It's like a more upscale Golden Griddle. Beware the line-ups though. The one downtown always has a line up but parts of the restaurant were empty. Felt like they were trying to generate more buzz than they actually had.
