I’m strangely excited about the impending opening of Cora’s Breakfast and Lunch on Queen St. It’s amazing to see a business moving to downtown Charlottetown, I guess. And since the demise of the Perfect Cup Cafe, I’ve been looking for a new breakfast place.
They’ve certainly done amazing work on the old Uncommon Grocer space: walking by tonight, the place is basically ready to go, with the tables all set up, the signage in place, and menus at the ready.
Cora’s, as readers have pointed out, is a branch of a Quebec-based chain. A story from the Toronto Star starts:
Until I’ve had a decent cup of coffee and a good meal, evil hell witch doesn’t begin to describe my morning persona. But enter through the doors of Cora’s Breakfast and Lunch, and you’re instantly transported to Happyland. In fact, I’ve forgotten what unironic cheerfulness feels like. Not only that, but if four urban homosexuals rush on over to a Mister and Mississauga strip mall on a Saturday morning after a Friday night of total debauchery, then the food just better be good. Boy, is it.
They seem to be big on variety, portion size and fresh fruit.
There’s a big countdown sign in their front window that says, tonight “2 Days until Opening”. So I imagine they open on Saturday. Anyone game for breakfast with Oliver and I?
