Cora for Breakfast Falls Flat

A friend from Steveston told me about his favourite breakfast restaurant, Cora. He loves the place so I thought, me being the lover of anything breakfast, I better give it a try.

I have to admit I was seriously under-whelmed. Seriously.

Yes, the service was great; fast and friendly and they have free wireless available for customers.

As soon as I sat down a young lady came by to take my order; a black coffee with a spinach omelette, hasbrowns and sourdough toast.

The coffee arrived almost right away. Well, it was scalding hot black stuff that smelled like coffee anyway. For $2.50 a cup I expect better.

The omelette arrived very quickly after that. And sadly, I was equally unimpressed. The plate was hot to the touch but the omelette itself was just barely warm and uninspired; flat like a pancake with no flavours that stood out.

Uninspired.

The hash-browns were the best part of the meal; real potatoes cut into wedges and fried. Good enough.

Bottom-line, $12 for an omelette and $2.50 for mediocre coffee, I was very disappointed and I would not return to Cora.

Cora has locations in Richmond and Coquitlam.

Disclosure; I bought and paid for my meal with money that should have been used for groceries for my family. Cora provided me with no financial or other form of incentive to write this review. As always, in all my blog posts, I maintain editorial control.

  1. The best part of Cora, realistically, is the fresh fruit and it looks like your omelette didn’t come with any. Try one of the fruit crepes or something like that next time. As an aside, $2.50 for bottomless coffee at a breakfast joint is fairly standard these days.
