Fresh fruit!

After so many days of fried fish and french fries, it was nice to find breakfast with fresh fruit. Most of their breakfast meals offer fruit with them. I had a french-toast cinnamon brioche with a huge side of fruit (kiwi, nectarine, strawberries, bananas, grapes, watermelon, blueberries... read more

We were a group of five and the wait for a table was unusually long worsened by a group of three that attempted to get a table first. A couple of us had the Construction on the menu and another the panini with fruits and crepe. The cocktail was good.

This little spot was very busy both times we visited. The service was good, food was good and we enjoyed. Service was fast yet we didn't feel rushed

The menu is annoying to navigate, the service was horrific, the food was okay (not great - I don't understand the rave reviews) and the tables were not really clean. In fact, we saw one of the kitchen workers bring a bag of garbage through the eating area! Never again.

I always like Cora. The food is presented in a pleasant visual manner and fairly consistent across the franchises. The addition of fruits to most dishes makes them well balanced.

chez cora is great anywhere you have it, the breakfast selection and food is tops. I've been to many locations across the country and it's popular everywhere, which means: line-ups to get in and wait times. at this location, we noticed that the turnover time lacked compared to other locations; dirtied tables were clearly visible while awaiting breakfasters stood in...

I have the chance to eat sometimes in a Cora's Breakfast, and the Halifax Cora's is OK but not in the top. I visit it at the beginning of April, and it is not the best season for fresh fruits but just to compare. In Ottawa, 3 days before, in the same plate my fruit selection was: apple, red grape,...
