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.

I've been to many Cora's and at the beginning (20 odd yrs ago) they were well worth it. Well today I reached my 3 strikes you are out with Cora. I will only speak of today's visit: Service - good, attentive, very nice waiter Good - bad - first dish of eggs Benedict had a nice long hair in it.... 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

Well priced and abundance of food on your plate. Great variety of menu as well for those picky eaters.

We were late for our reservation but they still let us in after waiting for 10 minutes. The service is always slow at any Cora. Still the food is great and we'll be back.

Went for breakfast recently and will not go again. The servings are huge - great for big eaters - and it comes fast - which may be the problem. Both of our plates were barely lukewarm - everything on the plate. It must be pre-prepared & just plated when ordered. Most people would agree that food should be served hot.... More

We were visiting family in the Regina area this weekend and dropped into Cora's for breakfast before taking our flight home. We have been to Cora's in Ontario and Quebec and the one in Regina served the exact same menu - consistent and well done.

Cora's is an excellent place to have breakfast or lunch. Great menu selections and fresh fruit & juices. I think they are open from 6:30 am to 3:00 pm and would definately recommend them.

Cora's is always an enjoyable experience. We generally go to Cora's in Orleans with our son, daughter-in-law and two grandchildren (aged three and one and a half). The staff is friendly; the food is tasty, fresh, and well presented, although a little pricey; the choice is extensive.
