Greatly improved menu and quality of fruits especially. Excellent menu for kids,probably the best place to eat breakfast. I used to believe they were overrated and over expensive. Since going with my wife and 2 year old son they got me with the kids menu and then got me with their ripe fruits and improved menu. I recommend.

We arrived around 12:30 for a light lunch. There was a long lineup moving slowly to get in, despite a large number of vacant tables. Management Tip 1: have the wait staff bus and reset the tables as soon as possible so that your hostess doesn't have to say "Please wait while I set up a table for you" to... More

We eat at Cora's every time we go out of town. This one didn't disappoint. Love their menu choices and haven't had a bad breakfast there yet!

This restaurant was busy for a breakfast I ate here. Sad to see too many servers on their phones. I observed a couple who was brought to a table but had to wait while someone cleaned the table all the while 3 servers were checking their phone. I had the Gigi omelet. It was very good but if I ran... More

My wife and I go to Coras every time we have to be in Ottawa in the early morning. The food is always cooked exactly the way it should be. The service is excellent all the time. The choice is excellent. The fruit served is always fresh and delicious. The amount of food is always adequate, if not slightly too... More

I love eating breakfast at restaurants. I moved to Ottawa from Montreal in July of 2015. I immediately set out to find a local restaurant that could satisfy my breakfast urges. I discovered that this location was the closest to where I lived, both by car and by bike. 10 months later, I am still frequenting this establishment. I go... More

We neglected Cora for the last few months, mainly because of the long waiting period before we could have a table.. For us 20 to 30 minutes was too long and sometimes it took as long before you were welcomed at the table with a glass of water or a coffee; so we decided not to return to this specific... More

Food is always fresh, and love to have breakfast for lunch options. Service is fast, as they know that many people only have a certain amount of time for lunch. There was a lineup at the cash though, which could be improved.
