I've been to several other Cora's around Ontario, Quebec and Atlantic Canada, and I've never been disapointed so far. But this Cora was something special. The person who served me, Tenzin, was not only kind, but also very patient (English is my second language, so I did have to make him repeat most of the question he asked) The food... More

A bright and colorful breakfast place with a wide menu. Fresh fruit is prominent with most dishes. Ate here three times and had different offerings. Each was great and the service was fast. One of 130 places, according to the place mat.

Excellent pancakes and waffles -- my wife's waffles had eight different kinds of fruit on it! Both waffles and pancakes were prepared just to our liking, light and fluffy pancakes and firm but not too firm waffles. The one problem we encountered was that the hot food was served on very cold plates, so that by the time you had... More

Found this place on trip adviser - just around the corner from our hotel (Courtyard by Marriott downtown) and had breakfast there throughout our stay. Servers were great and the breakfasts were fantastic - particularly the granola and fruit bowl and the pancakes. What impressed us most was our server who remembered our drink preferences from one day to the... More

Wehad a great time in Coras enjoying different joyces on breakfast combination. Each meal is served with a bunch of fruits and the dishes are exactly as shown in the menu card. Really worth the money.

Fantastic breakfast just opposite the Holiday Inn Toronto Downtown Centre. Colourful and welcoming venue. I have never seen a breakfast menu like this. A wide range of food available with lots of healthy and sinful options at a fair price. Good courteous service too. Best breakfast ever and if I am back in Toronto it will be on the itinerary.

We've just discovered Cora's, first in Mississauga and now in Carlton Street, Toronto. They are very good for breakfast and brunch and reasonably priced. Service is good, too. If you want something different, try a Louis the Undecided - it's eggs, bacon and potatoes accompanied by a crepe filled with banana, strawberry and chocolate spread. Savoury and sweet, but needs...

The presentation of the food here is really imaginative, but the prices are pretty high for what you get. In a city full of other brunch places, this one comes off seeming a little generic.

I've never been to a breakfast specialist cafe before and it was fantastic. Very colourful inside, staff are really friendly and the food is great at a reasonable price.

I have many dietary restrictions, but Cora's was able to meet my needs, and satisfy my appetite! Well done! I ordered an omelette with goat cheese and it was delicious, served with a side of fresh fruit, and tomatoes in place of home fries. Since it is a chain, I will look forward to dining at a 'Cora's' again soon.

Staying in Downtown

Neighborhood Profile
Downtown
At the heart of Toronto, Downtown is the destination for cheap eats and fast fashion. Cut through by hip and trendy Yonge Street, the vibe here is young, with a strong student influence from the Ryerson University Campus. As a result, the Downtown area is always in flux: undergoing the construction of new facilities, with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to Toronto's largest indoor shopping mall, a number of vintage cinemas, and a healthy nightlife centered on the area's Distillery District bar and clubs near the East End, it's both an easygoing daytime spot and a popular party place after sunset. It also features some of Toronto's best outdoor landmarks, including Yonge-Dundas Square and the Nathan Phillips Square: perfect for a concert, a skate, or a relaxing sit-down.
