We went to Chez Cora for breakfast and it was so good we went back again the next day. There are multiple locations around Montreal. They have a large and varied menu, with everything from crepes, to waffles, eggs, crepe omlettes and panini's, granola, etc..in other words, something for everyone! There was so many delicious options I could go back eveyday and order something different-they have a picture to accompany all the food, and the ingredients are listed in english. I ordered the fruit and custard crepe and my boyfriend ordered the banana and choclate crepe. The food came out quickly and the serving was huge, I could barely finish it. It was very good, too. The next day I got the raspberry and cream cheese crepe and he got the egg and ham crepe panini. The raspberry crepe was a little too "raspberry" but overall it was still very very good. The service was friendly and quick, even when it was crowded on a saturday morning. Their smoothies are also good. The prices were also good. It was definitly a great way to start the day, and experience some great food. Even though its a chain they definitly don't skimp on anything, giving great portion sizes and generous helpings of fresh fruit.
Favorite Dish: The Crepes- they are big and delicious, and they have a lot of different varieties.
Cora's Place all began in Montreal, with Cora, who decided that breakfast was the most important meal of the day. With the wonderful foods at Cora's, who would skip breakfast?
They have many interesting items to choose from, including fresh fruits, crepes, waffles, eggs, French toast and omelettes. The 10-star omelette has bacon, ham, sausage, frankfurters, bologna, spinach, green onions, tomatoes, onions, red peppers, green peppers, mushrooms, and Cheddar. The crepe omelette is western-style covered with Hollandaise sauce!
Favorite Dish: I ordered eggs benedict poached eggs with mushrooms and Brie covered in Hollandaise sauce. It was served with toast, potatoes and fresh fruit, and was fabulous!
I ordered the banana crepe with chocolate hazelnut sauce. I was not prepared for the size of this crepe~~in fact when I ordered I was a little worried that maybe I should have ordered something else. Actually, I was not able to finish this crepe! It is definitely for two people. This is a fun place and the menu is a little dizzying with the colorful illustrations~I was so entertained by the drawings I wasn't reading the menu! The selection is huge, so you can really order anything for breakfast.
Fun place for kids, too.
I love the varied menu at Chez Cora. You can have almost anything from eggs and bacon to crepes and fruit salad...or all of them together! And no matter what you choose, you'll be stuffed after!
Favorite Dish: I love everything here =)
This is a chain of restaurants. They all look pretty much the same and, like all chains, taste the same. Ok for fairly copious breakfast plates made with spongy (soggy) breads. Claim to fame: lots of fruit on the plate and they give you a piece of fudge at the cash on the way out. With so many unique and more interesting options in Mtl. I don't know why you'd bother. Check out restaurants on Mt Royal, St. Denis, Monkland, Sherbrooke W, etc for something better.
Favorite Dish: I think I had french toast or eggs benedict or something like that. Totally forgettable except for my disappointment.
If you love going out for glorious breakfasts then Chez Cora is the place to go in Montreal! They offer a great assortment of traditional and not so-traditional offerings. Everything is fantastic!
Favorite Dish: The dessert crepes are glorious! I also love the omelettes and the fruit offerings.
Fantastic breakfast/lunch restaurant on Avenue du Parc/cross Sherbrooke (just a short 5 mins walk east from McGill). Closely managed by the founder, Mrs. Cora Mussely Tsouflidou (no she's not literally there), they serve the best breakfast/brunch food in the city. Fresh fruits!!!!
Just a note, the restaurant closes at 3 p.m.
Favorite Dish: I heard the strawberry crepe is fabolous (with chocolate)! I tried the waffles and some of the fruit crunch bowl and both are very good.
Chez Cora déjeuners...
Actually open up to 3 PM. Serves mainly breakfast and light lunch. The chain started in Montreal and got great success, now with a dozen location. The menu is full of cute drawings of chickens, pigs, fruits, etc... and the walls of the restaurant is also filled with these drawings. Add to that a bunch of plastic chickens and you've got a lively decor to have your breakfast or brunch.
People always forget about breakfast, either eating a lousy continental breakfast at the hotel, grabbing an egg-McMuffin or something.
Favorite Dish: Great breakfast, fresh fruits.
My favorites are the 10-story omelet (not 10 stories, just lots of ingredients), Pain Gordon the french toast with pile of fresh fruits with english sauce.
This is a Canadian chain that actually has fresh, good food. They are located in Montreal but also in some of the smaller towns in the Laurentians like Saint Sauveur-des-monts. Friendly service as well.
Favorite Dish: Very good fruit salad and coffee. Excellent toast.
Alright, so this is not a very hidden restaurant, pretty much anybody in the city has seen one or been to one, but once in a while, I love going for breakfast at Chez Cora. This restaurant chain was started by Cora (duh), a woman that has been through it all : kids, marriage and still managed to make a name for herself, by cooking her way to success.
This restaurant is very warm and homey. The walls are yellow with drawings of everything on the menu. There are fake chickens on the top of the walls, it's all in all an interesting décor. The people there are very friendly, the waiters are fast and competent, don't expect an hour to get your food, it's more like 20 min max.
The prices vary but you can get a normal size meal : eggs, toast, potatoes, bacon ('déjeuner Bonjour', I think) for 4 $CAN or an omelette with potatoes toast and coffee for about 8 $CAN.
They have a special fruit drink, and don't get me wrong, it's very good, but not quite worth the price when you can get free coffee with most of the meals.
Honestly, I've enjoyed pretty much everything I've tasted here. The omelettes are pretty good, the crêpes are very filling so have a big stomach ready to be very full. If you take the crêpe called 'Avril '89', split it... it is HUGE. It's got all kinds of fruits inside and whipped cream on top, it's pretty impressive to see.
