I had an appointment in Hamilton this morning and I decided to go grab some breakfast close by and I found this Cora's location on Upper James Street. As much as I like the food of course here the problem I have is how expensive it is just so that you can have a healthy breakfast. Sometimes I wonder if,... More

Went here on a weekday and still had to wait about 10 min. to be seated. The restaurant wasn't full so not sure why it took so long. Staff was friendly, food was average but the kids enjoyed their meals. Prices are good for a sit down restaurant.

Came her with my daughter and her partner for her birthday breakfast. We often went to Cora's when she lived in Ottawa, it was a bit of a tradition before we started the drive home. My daughter went with the Asparagus Swiss Bennie ($13.95), Grapefruit Juice ($3.75) and a Last ($3.55). Over all she was very pleased with her meal... More

I have heard people rave about Cora's. The breakfast we had was soggy - pancakes not done. It was three pancakes, in between was a cream cheese mixture, topped with cherries. The price was $12.95 and coffee was $2.65. The waiter knew we didn't like it because he never asked how it was. The price for all meals is very... More

The restaurant is bright and cheerful and we were seated near the window which is always more pleasant than seating by the bathrooms. Our server was attentive without being intruding which was great as we were all working during our brunch meeting. Each of us enjoyed our selection and the presentation was appealing. The gluten free meal was yummy looking... More

My wife and I went to Cora's for the first ime. We have heard good things about it and thought we would give it a try. When we arrived there were plenty of tables available, but for some reason it took a huddle of 4 people to decide where to put us. Once seated we were given our menu's and... More

Yesterday was our wedding anniversary and my daughter felt bad that I was spending it alone (hubby and I celebrated on Sunday) so she offered to take me out for brunch. Both of us have worked at another Cora's so we knew what the wait times, etc were going to be like. This location was very good!! We were seated... More

Love love love Cora!!! Stumbled across it with my husband looking for crepes, and have come back many times with friends and family. Great variety of food, but what I love is that not only is your meal delicious, it also comes with fresh fruit that is cut in such creative ways!!! Highly recommend!

I ate at Cora again yesterday and had the eggs benedict with mushrooms and brie cheese. I was alone and wanted to do some reading over breakfast and they were able to put me in a great 'out of the way' spot. The service was particularly excellent and the food was delicious, hot, and plentiful. I love the fresh fruit... More
