“Cora's”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2014

We found this restaurant to be too expensive for breakfast, so we have only gone once. The portions were large which we did not need, peppered with too much fruit which is high in sugar.

This is a favourite place to take visitors. They are invariably pleased with the wide selection. The food is fresh,tasty and satisfying no matter which menu is chosen. Atmosphere is friendly- both staff and other customers.

“Need to use bigger eggs!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2014

I like CORA, but I really don't understand why they can't use eggs larger than size Small. I love their fruit and crepes, but their eggs are just too tiny. I have to order 3 eggs and even then they're not enough.

“Delicious Breakfast!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2014

Be hungry when you visit Cora's and be prepared to wait a short while. The breakfasts are all we have tried and they are delicious. Portions are generous and the plate presentation is bar none beautiful. Their fresh fruits are cut like a 5 star hotel/restaurant display and they arrive on your plate!
If you see a lineup, do wait because it seems to move quickly. You will not be disapointed.
