“Delicious Breakfast”
Reviewed November 6, 2012

It was really to make a selection from the menu as so much looked good. I ended up having a ham, egg and cheese sandwich done in french toast batter. It was wonderful and maybe the best thing was the mound of fresh fruit that came with it. And it was perfectly fresh! We looked at many other dishes passing by and everything looked true to the menu pictures and better. The only drawback to the place was the 30 minute wait to get in! Still, can't wait to go back.

“Cora's Ancaster: Overpriced, poorly prepared, low-quality food”
Reviewed October 27, 2012

The worst restaurant meal I've had in years, and definitely the worst crepes I've ever had anywhere in the world. Undercooked, cold crepe; fresh fruit filling consisting mostly of tasteless orange slices full of seeds, melon with pieces of rind still on, and a few green strawberry slices; and a price of around $11. The service was indifferent and slow. When I politely complained about the quality of the meal, the hostess blew me off and said the crepes were great and insinuated I didn't know what I was talking about instead of addressing my concerns in a professional manner. This was my first experience with the Cora's restaurant chain, and it will be my last. Do yourself a favour and go to the West End Diner instead.

“food? sucks!...service? even worse!”
Reviewed October 5, 2012

I've been to the Ancaster location 5 or 6 times.

As soon as I visited this location i noticed a couple of things:
1. the food is always cold by the time you get it.
2. if you want to substitute anything, they charge you an arm and a leg
3. you never get refills for your overpriced coffee/tea
4. the wait staff are unpleasant
5. the wait is definitely NOT worth it!
