Cora's got a lot of weird, tempting looking options. While my meal could have had a little more flavor, I enjoyed it. The service was really good, people were super kind, and the prices seemed fair to me given that thr servings are big!

We were quite a large group, 17 hockey players as well as staff and their parents. The waiter we had took all our orders and didn't write a single thing down. He got all our orders right. Just amazing to have that kind of service.

This place has a big following and so I was hoping for that classic diner experience - you know, booths, the font, happy days on the juke box and classic north american/canadian fare. The server was good although she did take a while to take...More
