Went for breakfast I ordered half and order of oatmeal and was charged full price. This was not explained to me by the waitress. A full order is way too much oatmeal, and I didn't want to waste any.

I recently visited Cora's Breakfast & Lunch and was in the mood for breakfast. I've never been a fan of glorified breakfast (personal choice) and am more of a eggs, sausage, home fries and rye toast throw it on my plate and let me dine kind of guy. The order was simple, eggs (over-easy), sausage, home fries and rye toast.... More

Service is always fast and efficient, the staff is always friendly and accommodating. Weekend mornings tend to be quite busy so expect a wait!

Food looks prettier than it tastes. Place is too cold most of the time, so food gets cold fast. They don't cook eggs very well, uncooked whites often. Need to offer more meals without all the pretty fruit, not everyone can have it, or want it.

Was there for daughter, she ordered gauffre with fruits looked delicious, I ordered eggs with asperaguse no cheeze. I specifically ordered my eggs medium hard and no banana on my plate, got the banana and the eggs were runny. True they were busy, I still cannot account as to why the waitress never came back in the back of the... More

This place used to be awesome. As of lately it has been going downhill. This morning we went as a family of 5. Service was quick mind you the people who sat down next to us got their food first. When we did get our meals the food was not hot, more cold than warm. Special requests were ignored and... More

Any Cora I've been to is good with the same menu. I always choose the smoked salmon with cream cheese on a bagel. The fruits is always fresh and I always enjoy my meal.

This was my first time here & I absolutely loved it! The servings are massive, I couldn't even finish it all & it is so affordable! I can't believe they don't charge double the price, it's so worth it. I had the eggs Benedict with the Brie cheese, mushrooms & ham. I asked the waiter which one he likes best... More

I have mostly spent time at Cora's in Winnipeg, closer to home. I have learned to expect a good experience every time. This Cora's delivered. The service was very good and accommodating when I wanted a picture taken. The food was as good as I've had in the past. Delightful.

I have not been to Cora's for a few years and was quite curious what is new on the menu. Well, prices went definitely up a lot from what I remembered. Food was a bit worse too, too greasy (eggs and potatoes), fruit was not ripe enough, smoothies had so much sugar in them that it did not matter what... More
