This place made my wknd. Let's start with the coffee. Amazing!! A small wait but the blueberry orange pancakes were a generous size and were great. Definitely a good brunch/couples place.

Go here, it is well worth it.

We had to wait about 20 minutes for our table, but it was totally worth it! The coffee was some of the best we've had in LA. The fresh squeezed grapefruit was amazing (but thats not hard to screw up either.) We had orange pancakes, and an egg white omelet. The food was delicious and totally worth the wait! We were sad we never had the chance to go back to Cora's during our stay in LA. but on our next trip out here, this will definitely be the first place we go!

The food is good but the service is so bad that it effects the overall meal. Other reviews are correct regarding the service and attitude of the waitstaff.

Ask for fresh fruit with the steel cut oats. For an extra couple of bucks, they add blueberries, sliced bananas and strawberries. We should have split it, there's plenty for two.
The buckwheat blueberry pancakes were big enough to share too.

We are former Santa Monica residents and back in the day Cora's was a great place for breakfast. Not so much anymore. The old fashioned breakfast is no more, replaced by trendy and sometimes odd food. For example no toast with my corned beef & eggs and the corned beef wasn't corned beef. Some beef with a great variety of vegetables but not what I expected. Forget the food though the real problem was the service. Slow, condescending and surly. Our waiter acted as if he was doing us a favor.... and even with the doing it badly. When I asked where the pepper shaker was (there was a salt shaker) he rolled his eye & informed me they had fresh ground pepper and walked away. I had to call him back to g t some pepper. Needless to say I will never eat there again.
