Review of Cora

Dining options: Breakfast
Description: "Offer the highest quality ingredients and service, give people the best and they will come. If we serve the best breakfasts in town, why would they go somewhere else?". Very quickly, Cora's reputation for great breakfasts far exceeded the small diner's capacity to meet demand. So the family decided that mom would open a second Cora, while her children managed the little Cote-Vertu establishment.

“best breakfast /brunch place”
Reviewed October 2, 2012

I have been to Cora's a number of times in Calgary and Kelowna and have always had a great experience . The service is great and the food is fantastic. They have a great variety of meals and all of them include fresh fruit. You can taste the food and not the grease, There fresh fruit smoothies are the best, Not only is the food terrific but the service is also great. There is no rush to get you out ant they are there when you want them, All in all it is a great dining experience and I highly recommend it as a great place to eat.

Thank you so much for your review! We read it and are pleased you noticed we are not a "greasy spoon". In fact, we don't even have a deep fryer. We do cook all of our eggs on a clean grill which adds to our fresh taste. Thanks so much for noticing and sharing your experience. We will pass along your kind words to our team who will be so pleased they wow'd you.

“Great place for breakfast”
Reviewed September 23, 2012

Ate here as didn't fancy any more substandard and over priced hotel breakfasts. This place is light and bright, it was busy but we only had to wait a couple of minutes. The service was good and the food was also very good. At last somewhere where you can get fresh fruit, well presented. Only downside, we were asked if we would like a chocolate sauce with our breakfast, we said yes. to be honest we really didn't need one each as the portion size was large and we were also a bit surprised to see that it cost extra, that was not advised when we ordered. However that won't distract from the fact that this was one of the best places we had breakfast and we wold definitely go there again and recommend it.
it was fairly expensive but then we found food and drink in Canada to be expensive wherever we went.

Thank you drivealot for sharing your experience! We are so happy you found us on your journey. There are 130 Cora restaurants across Canada so we invite you to visit one of our "sister stores" for more great fresh fruit. We often hear from our travelling visitors how refreshing it is for them to find fresh fruits and vegetables on their journey and we are so pleased you enjoyed your visit. Thanks for visiting us at Cora Kelowna!

“Wonderful fresh local fruit!”
Reviewed August 13, 2012

What a great place for breakfast. They offer all different kinds of crepes, waffles and egg dishes with fresh fruit. The local fresh peaches were delicious. The server suggested I order the custard as a side dish to eat with the crepes. She was right on. The custard was yummy! It was a little pricey but worth it for the fresh fruit.

Thanks Wendy! We are glad you found our "oasis" on your trip. We have many travellers who love that we serve fresh fruit and veggies which are hard to find on vacation sometimes. They often love the fact we don't even have a deep-fryer. It keeps our restaurant smelling fresh and adds to that atmosphere you enjoyed. Thanks again for coming in. Hope to see you on your next trip through Kelowna.

“Mediocre breakfast”
Reviewed July 30, 2012

Food was mediocre, bacon was razor thin and small...very strange for a place that prides itself on breakfast to serve such shabby bacon. Overpriced.

Thank you for your review. We are sorry you weren't wow'd with your visit. We can see by your plate that you had ordered the Peggy's Poached. This meal is one of our healthiest and comes with a Poached Egg, 2 cups of freshly sliced fruit and your choice of toast. Bacon is not part of this meal but must have been ordered on the side. For those who prefer, we offer sliced ham, pork sausage, turkey sausage or even bologna as well.

I have forwarded your comments to our purchaser to ensure your feedback is heard. Thanks again for visiting our restaurant. We hope you visit Cora again soon.
