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

The food here is excellent - very fresh and perfectly prepared. There are many choices and everything we had was wonderful from waffles to omelets. The staff is extremely friendly and the decor is unique and happy! The prices are high (as is everything in Canada) but we felt it was worth the money for high quality food.

Without any dispute, the best taste of Canadian family cuisine, from a Quebecois traditional of hearty food. There is a strong coffee, get cafe au lait served in a bowl. Lots of fruit, eggs, meat... Absolutely don't miss a breakfast here!

Breakfast here was very good. Most things come with a large serving of fresh fruit, and the fruit was so good and so fresh. A bit odd (for someone from England) to have fruit with a toasted egg, cheese and ham sandwich (all on the same plate) but it was good. Service was excellent and it was reasonably priced.

Cora's is great for breakfast. There is a large selection on the menu. Cora's is known for the fresh fruit that they serve with every entree. There is always a very good selection of fruit and it is always perfectly ripened. We visited the Bow Valley Square location on a Saturday and it wasn't near as crazy busy as other... More

Really enjoyed the large breakfast at Cora, plus the amazing pile of fresh fruit. It was a great breakfast. I enjoyed the basic eggs, bacon and hashbrowns.... With the like of fruit. This rocked!
