I've been going to Cora's for years, and it's always been a busy place with lines outside the door. Not a big problem during good weather, but not enjoyable during the winter or rain. On our last visit I found that the menu had changed a little, and that the portions seemed smaller than they used to be - a... More

We've been to many Coras in different places in Quebec and Ontario and the one on St. Laurent near Innes, I'm happy to say, is bang-on. We four had a kid's breakfast; something called 1990s which proved to be two meals; and two of us had eggs Benedict. I'm glad I ordered one egg. Ouf! Lots of grub. Delicious as... More

Cora's had the best looking menu and the finished cooked product was delicious. The amount of food you received was more than you can eat. Surroundings were nice. The staff were polite and courteous. A affordable and reasonable. place to attend.

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
