“nothing exciting except the fruits”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2013

We went to the location on Provencher with the intention to try a new breakfast place following a recommendation from a friend. Sunday morning was very busy but luckily we called ahead and they accepted a reservation so we could skip the long line up after only a two minute wait.
The menu looks very interesting with some unusual omelettes and all the different fruits decorating the plates. I ordered a rather regular breakfast with three eggs, bacon and sausages. Everything tasted good except the sausages which left a very mediocre impression. Very soft and mostly fillers with seasoning. The fruits were fresh and ripe.
Overall a nice location especially once the outdoor seating will be open again. The food quality is still average despite the efforts to offer something different. I believe that there are better breakfast places in town to which I will return to next time I want to eat out.

“Lots of fresh fruit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2013

If you like fruit for breakfast/lunch this s the place to go. The menu variety is good with additional items at lunch. Our family has had many of the breakfasts and monthlies and they are all great depending on what you are in the mood for.

“The FRUIT!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 12, 2013

Its almost cheaper than doing it yourself, so let them do it sit back and enjoy. We always get the eggs bene with salmon loaded with all the fixing, combin that with a huge plate of fruit and a latte and I think it tops off for my all time favourite breakfast in the peg. Wait times are LONG, they aren't open for dinner. Make sure you "call ahead" just as your leaving to cut your wait time in half.

“Okay”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013

Yes, everyone makes a big deal about Cora's but the times that we've been there, it's been just "okay". Nothing special or to make us run back and the prices are kind of steep for "okay" food. There's always been lots of kids and fairly noisy on the weekends.

“Charming”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013

I generally go for the fruit crepes, but the benny's are super as well. It is always a busy spot and not just for locals. Fruit is beautifully presented on every plate. Homey atmosphere and lovely little treat is available as you leave.
