I absolutely love this place! The service is good and the food is too. Whenever I'm in Canada (Ottawa) I always use this place three or four times per visit. But be warned, if you want breakfast on a Saturday of Sunday morning you had better get there sharpish, this place is very popular. That speaks volumes.

Visited on a very cold Saturday morning and the place was already quite busy. Each of us (3) ordered something that I would have assumed would take approximately 15 minutes...I was wrong. Before I was 1/4 done my first cup of coffee, the meal arrived, very hot, very tasty and well presented. Nick, our waiter, was very attentive and made... More

Going Cora s was okay! I find the food tasty but very expensive compare to Tutti Fruity off Baseline. They have good food and so decorative good price. I prefer Tutti Frutti than Cora s.

Best place in town for a varied breakfast and lunch. Fruit and a good range of breakfast items. We go often for lunch and also meet for coffee and cinnamon buns. Friendly service and comfortable ambience. Can be crowded over lunch some days - but doesn't seem predictable.

My wife and I decided to drop in to the local Cora's (we'd been there before and while a bit expensive we liked their breakfasts). We had to wait 10 minutes for a table - but there were many openings - I think they were understaffed. We noticed what I assume was a manager speaking to a waitress in an... More

Breakfast is by far my favourite meal of the day and Cora's delivers. It definitely is overpriced, but it's very hard to find a good quality restaurant now days that isn't. Love all the fruit choices and the crepes are delicious.

I was excited trying Cora's here in Ottawa but was a bit disappointed. I tried the Holiday wish plate but did not enjoy my spinach crepe. Tasted bland for me. Coffee is bland and could be better. I looked at the orders of my companions and noticed the fruit servings are really not as big as the other Cora places... More

Overpriced! Menu very confusing. Food was cold when I got it! Cold eggs and potatoes. Service was OK... I thought as much as this is talked about it would be better... It wasn't that great. Won't go back!

The long wait was worth the good food and the awesome strawberry waffles! The service is always polite and efficient. They had so many food choice but every random meal we ordered was absolutely delicious. The only setback is their coffee which seemed a little too bland for me but overall, we always had good dining experiences eating at Cora's.
