For our first breakfast in Montreal, my family decided to eat at Chez Cora before we all went our separate ways for the day. Jenkins and I had gone to Chez Cora the last time we were in Montreal based on my cousin’s recommendation. Although it was a different location we had gone to, we remembered that we quite enjoyed it and that the food was pretty fresh and tasty. The location we chose was only a few blocks away from our hotel so it was easy for us to walk to. Luckily, we didn’t have to wait for a table and they seated us right away.
Jenkins’ meal came with a coffee and since mine didn’t come with anything, I decided to order a grapefruit juice.
I was pretty hungry that morning so I ordered a fairly comprehensive breakfast, as you can see below. The blueberry pancakes were thinner than I was used to but were loaded with blueberries and actually quite tasty. That was probably my favourite part of my breakfast. I found the eggs to be a bit bland and the bacon was quite soggy and greasy. There were also some home fries under the bacon and if you missed them, it’s probably because they were quite pale and didn’t look like home fries at all. They could have benefited from more time in the frying pan, seeing that they weren’t crispy at all.
Jenkins decided to try something different and ordered the ham and egg crepe omelette. Basically, the omelette came rolled in a thin crepe and then was doused with hollandaise sauce. I didn’t end up trying this but Jenkins noted that the hollandaise was a bit thin and wasn’t as rich as he would have liked. He would have preferred for the hollandaise sauce to be served on the side in this particular case.
I didn’t take pictures of what everyone ate since there were so many of us, but the general consensus was that the breakfast was decent but not great. Service at this particular location also seemed to be a little on the slow side, despite the restaurant being fairly empty when we were there. The Chez Cora that Jenkins and I had visited during our previous trip was on the other end of downtown Montreal so I’m not sure if the location we visited this time around was a bad anomaly or if the original location we visited was a good anomaly. Either that, or our tastes have improved drastically since our last trip to Montreal!
