Our meal was sub par today having cold potatoes on an extremely hot plate. From what I gathered food looked like it was sitting under the heat lamp for 20 minutes before it was brought to the table. Our server Laura was not pleasant or apologetic. won't be back

Went for a late breakfast, around 10:30 on a Sunday. When we arrived we were shown to a seat, but a line started to form shortly after (not a long line). Service was good considering now busy the place was. My wife ordered a wrap, and I ordered eggs benedict. The eggs were a little over done with firm yolks,... More

We have only been here twice. The breakfast was so so but too overpriced. We found it no better (if not as good) as any place that has a $4.99 breakfast special. Was just over $28 for the 2 of us. The turkey sausage was left on both our plates. It was awful. Best thing I can say about Cora's?... More

We were here on thanksgiving Day. Super busy but we were seated promptly. Service was great . Not one error in our orders. Food was fabulous! Hot, good size serving and LOTS of fresh fruit. And a nice variety too. First time here but sure to return. Very impressed with friendly service.

This is a very lovely reasonably priced spot to meet for business. Unfortunately local construction seems to be impacting their clientele. The food was good and the staff delightful.

Not sure why people give this place good reviews. We went for lunch. The place was practically empty. We ordered right away, crepe for myself, a burger for my daughter. The order took half an hour and was only delivered after I complained to the manager. Crepe was stale and totally cold, they replaced it. My daughter said that the... More

My go-to place for Eggs Benedict. Any of the menu variations are great. They're willing to adjust your order. And you'll get your entire day's serving of fruit beautifully presented. I've learned that not all Cora's kitchens deliver the same quality as this location.

Enjoyable experience . A wide variety of breakfast dishes . Do problems with service . The lineup to get in put me off a bit . A fair amount of fresh fruit dishes. Probably the only reason NOT to return is the cost was quite high considering we all had eggs primarily.

Another good diner-style choice for breakfasts and lunches - a bit more expensive that other 'family diners', but with a wide range of healthy choice foods and excellent smoothies.
