Cora opened on the West Coast last year. Its been established on the East Coast, but finally the chain is here! Cora is located in Coquitlam near Coquitlam Center. It’s quite a far drive but if you want a taste of their gigantic breakfasts and lunch, you may want to travel far.
Since I don’t live not too far from here, KoreanGirl, Gmoney, Jewels, and SuzySticks took a short drive here.
1990’s Harvest with sunny side up egg ($11.95) has a large cinnamon-raisin brioche dipped in french toast batter with an egg and bacon strips on one side and a mountain of fresh fruit on the other.
One side of the cinnamon bun was dry and the other one was moist. Certain fruits weren’t as fresh as others, but there was definitely a lot of fruit.
1990’s Harvest with scrambled egg ($11.95) I think Koreangirl was missing a bacon here if you compare it to the image above. She found the same issues with the partially dry cinnamon bun and certain fruits not fresh.
Eggs Benedict ($12.25) has two poached eggs on an English muffin covered with Hollandaise sauce, served with roasted potatoes and fresh fruit.
Seventh of July ($11.25) has 2 crepes and french toast covered with a mountain of fresh fruit. It was OK, but it has a lot of carbs. Its a bit difficult to eat since Jewels didn’t know if she was supposed to eat the crepes with the fruit or eat them separately.
Buckwheat Blessing ($12.95) has 3 sausages and cheese wrapped in buckwheat crepes with a large amount of fruit. I thought the sausages wrapped in the crepes were really good! Yummm meat! There was plenty of fruit, but the watermelon was not fresh at all. It looked super pale. It’s a good touch that they have a few unique fruits like starfruit and persimmons.
Overall, you gets tons of fruit with each dish, but you should come in the summer when fruit is the freshest. Since you never know what fruit will end up on your plate, if you have an allergy, it’s best to let them know ahead of time.
