chez cora

I like breakfast restaurants, and I've read good things about Cora's, so I decided to go to the one in Brampton for my birthday (closest to where I was). It was truly uninspiring. The service was very friendly and the menu looked like fun, but the food itself just ruined it. The presentation on the plate was bland, my partner's over-easy eggs were way too over-cooked, the roasted potatoes looked more boiled than roasted, the crepes were actually pancakes (8 dollars for 3 small ones!), the fruit cocktail had the texture of tomato paste, and we were charged 50 cents for every maple syrup plastic cup that we opened.

Well, for those who complain about the Toronto version of Eggspectation, try Cora, and you'll be thankful for eggspectation. I have a feeling they must have done a total Americanization of their breakfast items... how else would they be able to survive in Montreal serving pancakes pretending they were crepes? I'd rate the place equivalent to Golden Griddle.
