Open on weekends!

The downtown location seems to have less of a line that other locations on the weekends. Not saying you won't have to wait, but it always seems to be less.

We visited Cora's 3 times during our stay and found it to be brilliant. They have an extensive menu of breakfast & Lunch foods. We tried different choices including eggs & bacon, pancakes & fruit and a favourite of ours the crepes with fresh strawberries, all were delicious. The service was excellent and all the staff were genuinely friendly and... More

Price has gone up, but food is guaranteed to be satisfactory. Parking can be challenging when you visit during the weekdays, but weekends are real good since you can park for free inside the building. Service is always superb, but there may be a little wait if you arrive in the mid morning or during the lunch hour rush.

The food was tasty and what's not to love about fruit. It's open on the weekend and parking is free on weekends. I'd probably say don't miss this place... be prepared to line up as reservations are not accepted. Generally the line moves fast. Also they are closed by 3PM. Service was just not that great. Cold coffee, and there... More

We went her for breakfast. WOW. We had the Ham & swiss crepe Omelette along with the Sunshine Panini with ham. Service is fantastic. Nice size for a Breakfast/lunch restaurant. Their Mochaccino coffee is made perfectly. Service is fantastic, quick but not rushed. We enjoyed ourselves there.

Have been to a couple of Cora's restaurants in Calgary. Food is very good, a varied menu for all appetites, reasonably priced and the food is fresh. Don't miss going to Cora's for breakfast or lunch. Their lunch menu has lots of items to choose from.

Loved this place in downtown Calgary. Great selections of all types of breakfast options with some very unique ethnic additions to make it more than just your typical breakfast. Spinach cheddar crepe was excellent as well as the Cora's special (three meats, pancake, eggs, fruit and potatoes). I had the Burrito crepe that was very good. The waitress, Becky, was... More

I used to hate going out for Breakfast - Until Cora's. The menu is divine, everything from poached eggs and bacon to the most amazing looking breakfast crepes and paninis. The fresh fruit is amazing and it is all ripe- wow what a concept. We arrived and were seated immediately, our waitress brought water and coffee and then there was... More

What a great b'fast. I have never seen such a creative menu at a b'fast place (they do lunch as well). The fruit that they offered with just about everything was sweet and delicious. The creative presentations were fun by themselves and our waitress was wonderful. Wish I could remember her name. Place felt fun and clean as well.

The place emits a friendly, albeit slightly noisy atmosphere, as you enter and are shown to a table. This is not a problem as there isn't any background "muzak" to confuse your ears. A couple of groups, each presumable from a local office/company, were in having a start of day get together with breakfast. The waitress said this was quiet... More
