Excellent brunch! A lot of delicious food for not more than 20 bucks. If you drink regular coffee, the waitress will refill your cup for free, as many times as you want!!!!!!! :D

This is your usual Cora's fair...fancy breakfasts with all kinds of options presented with pretty fruit carvings. The idea is nice but I usually find the fruit dry and most of the food flavours no better than what you would find at a typical diner. This particular location is located inside a mall where there are no windows. This gives... More

I have eaten at Cora's in other provinces so when a colleague suggested having breakfast here, I didn't hesitate. Breakfast was very good. The service was great as well. Definitely a place to keep on the visit list.

Visited Cora Bow Valley Square on a chilly, rainy Saturday. We arrived shortly before noon. Restaurant was very busy but we were seated promptly. Service was very attentive. Food was excellent.

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

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.
