I couldn't imagine a place that could make it better

Cora's Breakfast and Lunch, a franchise out of Quebec, is a very popular place around here. The one nearest us at Northland Village Shops always has a lineup going out the restaurant door and winding back and forth near the west entrance to the mall. Yes, it's that good.

Sunday morning I managed to catch Darlene up earlier than usual and pounced on the opportunity to drag her... umm butt out to Cora's before the lineups got out of hand. It was Mother's Day too, so we expected things could get crazy pretty fast. As we arrived in the mall parking lot, we could see that there were quite a few cars already, so I dropped Darlene off right at the door so she could get in faster. Good thing, as others were literally running from their cars to get to the door.

Anyway, we made it just in time before the lineup started, so that was awesome. I opened the menu and noticed a picture of a stack of fresh blueberry pancakes. Oh my. I was so excited, all I could do was point to the picture when the server took our order. Turns out the blueberry pancakes have been on the menu forever, but only recently did they show a picture in the menu. GOOD MOVE!

Anyway, they were fantastic. As Cora's specializes in fresh fruit sides to go with most of their offerings, who better to make pancakes with fruit in them? They were extraordinarily filling. I couldn't eat it all. That's right - Karl Plesz had trouble finishing what was on his plate. Mind you, I did fill up on most of a bowl of fresh fruit, so there.

Oh yummy! I very much like to go to Elmer's Pancakes and have their Dutch Baby and I fire up my own person jug of sour dough every once in while. Retro
