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

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

Had two breakfasts here, both were delicious. They have a good variety to choose from. In both meals there was so much I couldn't finish them.

If you enjoy fesh fruit or a hot breakfast or both this is the place to go. The line-up at the door went quite smoothly and we were sitting down in no time. The waitress was very polite and offered us coffee and gave us our menus and said she would be back shortly. I decided to have the #1... More
