Brighten up your Day with Cora Chatham’s Breakfast Experience!

Stepping into Cora Breakfast and Lunch, you’re immediately struck by the distinct charm that sets this breakfast joint apart from any other in town. Tucked in the new plaza on the corner of St. Clair Street and Gregory Drive, we had the pleasure of chatting with franchise owner Raj Reddy, who shared his journey of bringing amazing breakfasts to the community.

Originally from Toronto, Raj and his wife have found solace in the peaceful rhythms of Chatham. “We’ve lived in a few different cities – but Chatham just feels like home,” he reminisced. “Here, you really have the chance to talk to people and really get to take the time to connect.” With a warm smile, he expressed his gratitude for being a part of this welcoming community.

Despite a career in tech, Raj’s heart was always set on the culinary world. “I grew up surrounded by the aroma of my parents’ restaurant,” he revealed. “Owning a restaurant in this country has been my dream.” Inspired by the 35-year legacy that founder Cora Tsouflidou built to establish Cora Restaurants across Canada and his cousin’s journey as a Cora franchise owner, Raj was determined to bring vibrant dishes to Chatham.

What sets Cora apart? Raj’s answer was simple: “We’re in the business of brightening people’s days.” When seated in the restaurant you are bathed with sunlight streaming through large windows which echo the warmth of the food, and the smiles of the staff. Generous portions arrive bursting with freshness, adorned with brightly coloured fresh fruit. Each order that arrives reflects the Cora commitment to quality ingredients and attention to detail. “No matter how you walk through those doors; you are going to leave happy and full.” Cora strives to accommodate diverse dietary needs without compromising on taste or quality. For the staff, ensuring a safe dining experience for guests with allergies is paramount; taking care in preparing the food. The menu also offers a welcoming variety of vegetarian, halal, and kosher options.

Regulars Fran and Harold Baughman stumbled upon Cora during a routine trip to the nearby stores and instantly fell in love. “The staff are wonderful,” Fran gushed, “always polite and cheerful.” As for the food? Harold recommends the Cora’s Special or the waffles – “You won’t be disappointed!”

So, whether you’re a local looking for a delightful breakfast spot or a visitor passing through, Cora Breakfast and Lunch Chatham promises an experience like no other. Open daily from 7:00 am to 3:00 pm, it’s a warm invitation to start your day right!
