We have been to a number of Cora eateries but the one in Ottawa outshines the others! The food is delicious! Don't know what makes it different from the others but the food is tastier and the fruit seems fresher. The menu is the same in all locations and is quite extensive. The restaurant is clean and the service is... More

Near our hotel, we stumbled into Cora's for breakfast. What a great menu! SO many choices, from the predictable egg platters and omelettes, to many unique creations, crepes and more. This is a busy place, with fast turnover. I had the Cora's special....two eggs, bacon, sausage, ham, a crepe, potatoes and toast. Everything tasted really fresh, and was perfectly prepared.... More

Cora's is always good eats ! Recommend going before 10 am otherwise long line ups. A bit costly for breakfast of 3 but food was worth it. Went back the morning as well.

Cora's never disappoints. Delicious food, good portions and lots of creative food combinations. The price can be a little on the higher side for just breakfast, but that never deters us from making a stop here.

Besides the rude service, freezing cold air conditioning and crappy food, the worst part abut Cora's is their syrup rip off! They put "real" maple syrup in the table without mentioning you'll be charged extra if you use it! We were quite surprised to find the extra charges on our bill, after the waitress encouraged us to use the "good"... More

My family of five spent 4 days in Ottawa. On our last day we decide to have breakfast out. The other days, our hotel had a kitchen so we had bagels with cream cheese or peanut butter, eggs or cereal. That Monday morning searching for a place to have breakfast was hard to decide on. We wanted a real breakfast.... More

We came across Cora's by chance on our last day in Ottawa and wish we had earlier! They have an extensive breakfast menu at a reasonable price. We opted for the western omelette which came with fruit and potatoes, and 2 poached eggs with toast. The eggs were cooked perfectly, runny and the taste was great! - not like the... More

Definitely a great breakfast spot.. similar to tutti fruitti. Service was prompt. Busy there but didn't have to wait for a table. We ordered eggs Benedict. Beautiful presentation. Fruits fresh and tasty. Excellent flavor. Place looks nice, very colorful. Great place for families with children. Also fairly cheap.. nothing bad to say about this place. Check it out if you've...

We visited Ottawa two years ago and ate here. We enjoyed the food, old-style service and the prices. Consequently, we decided to have breakfast here again. The restaurant is just as the name says, open only for breakfast and lunch, closing at 3 p.m. in the afternoon. They have large and small booths and a separate room for larger groups.... More

Along with two others I ate lunch at Cora's on July 18, 2014. I ordered the spinach and cheese omelet with fries but after one or two bites I could not want to eat anymore because the food was very greasy and unappetizing. The server offered another omelet made but since I didn't think that would any improvement on the... More
