Sainte-Thérèse, March 4, 2019 Cora Breakfast and Lunch, Canada’s breakfast leader, is proud to announce the opening of a new Cora restaurant in Winnipeg. The new restaurant, located at 845 Dakota Street, will be welcoming its first guests on Monday, March 11, 2019.

The official Grand Opening will take place on March 13, 2019. Pioneering founder Cora Tsouflidou and local owner-franchisees will welcome dignitaries and guests for a true celebration: the Egg-Cracking Ceremony, during which the first symbolic omelette in the restaurant will be made.  

The new location is part of a nationwide expansion of the Cora network, making it the 3rd restaurant in Manitoba for the largest sit-down breakfast chain in Canada. Cora Breakfast and Lunch is also very pleased to announce the reopening of another one of its Winnipeg franchises. A true phoenix rising from the ashes, the Cora restaurant located at 840 Waverley Street reopened its doors on February 25 following a fire in 2018.

Madame Cora originated the concept in 1987 when, as a single mother of three in need of a career, she bought a small abandoned diner on Côte-Vertu Boulevard in Montreal’s St-Laurent area, focusing solely on breakfast (egg dishes, fresh fruit, cheese, cereal, omelettes, crêpes and French toast). The restaurant quickly became the talk of the town, often with lineups at the door. Madame Cora’s astute entrepreneurial instincts told her that this was a concept that could be franchised.

The Cora restaurant chain is famous for its breakfasts, boasting mounds of fresh fruit artfully prepared by specially trained on-site “fruiters.” Over the years, inspired by family traditions, customer requests and suggestions from her children, Madame Cora has conjured up more than 100 menu ideas, most of which still bear the names of the customers or family members who inspired her.
