Cora’s opens in Chatham

Chatham-Kent loves a good breakfast, and residents are proving it by flocking to the new Cora’s restaurant on St. Clair Street.

The new bright and airy space opened just a couple of weeks ago but it’s already drawing crowds, according to owner Raj Reddy.

“It’s been very, very busy,” Raj told The Voice, adding business is steady with 15 employees on hand preparing food and serving customers.

Raj, who co-owns the Cora’s Breakfast and Lunch with his wife Snigdha Reddy, hosted Cora Tsouflidou, the spry founder of the Canadian franchise, with outlets across the country.

Tsouflidou came to Chatham April 11 to attend the grand opening of the new spot, along with a host of dignitaries. They followed tradition, cracking eggs to commemorate the occasion.

The Chatham site is the 37th Cora’s in Ontario, part of the largest sit-down breakfast chain in Canada.

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 in Montreal, 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 out the door.
