Breakfast 'n' Lunch | Jessy Eats

My boyfriend & I recently ate at Cora's for breakfast and Pixel 8 for lunch (on separate days). It was my first time at both of those places! Cora's is a large breakfast chain that can only be found in Canada and Pixel 8 is just a random Asian "lounge" place in Markham, Ontario (Bur Oak & Kennedy).

What a cute logo! (@ Cora's)

Boyfriend's Caffe Latte
I got a glass of grapefruit juice.

My Western omelette

Boyfriend's "Good Morning!"
(2 eggs any style w/sausage, bacon, ham, or bologna)

Boyfriend's chicken teriyaki rice @ Pixel 8 

My Japanese udon noodles
It was the only udon dish there and I will not be ordering it again.


I'm more of an "udon" person. What about you? Ramen or udon noodles?

  1. Those pictures are incredibly tempting at this hour haha.

    When I go out, I always choose udon over ramen because I feel that I always have ramen (instant) at home and udon is just... special :) Squishy, chewy goodness.

  2. Yummy! I think Cora's is kind of overpriced for what it is.. like anyone can easily make it at home, but I do love the atmosphere! I think I'm more of a ramen girl... udon is tasty though haha <3

    I have one in my town too! I've never had it before,probably because I know it's pricey. :P Still want to try though!

  4. I recently had udon for the first time a month ago at a fabulous restaurant in NYC. I'm glad I did because it was unforgettable.

  8. I love both udon and ramen! I think it depends on my mood, really. Too bad that that bowl you had wasn't up to standard though.

  14. Hope you enjoyed your breakfast at Cora. Me and my bf love having breakfast there during the weekend! You should try their eggs benedict next time!

    Ramen or udon?! Hmmm, I love both of them... it would depend on where I am and what the restaurant's specialty is!

    omigosh, yes. Looking at these make me hungry! I just love udon noodles. om nom nom

    @LilliChantilly
    I thought it was overpriced too!! Today though..we went to a "homey" breakfast place and it was basically the same price as Cora's. LOL -_-'

    @DearKarYan
    You should try it at least once. You'll love the cute atmosphere. : )

    @Gracie
    omg yay! Udon's the best. What kind did you have?

    @Amy
    Yeah it was just.. tasteless to me. :(

    @[Anna]
    omg! I thought it was a normal thing for people to put fruit pieces on your breakfast. xD I think the restaurants just put it for convenience so that they don't have to use another plate for you for fruits. : )

    @Crystal Luvz
    I just had eggs benedict for breakfast this morning. I'd forgotten how much I love them. SOOO GOOD. I'll definitely remember that for the next time I'm at Cora's :D

    @Elle
    hehe no problem., Elle. ; ) Chicken teriyaki is amazing <3

  27. According to the website, it's vegetable in Dashi broth... I really don't know what that means but I do know it's nothing short from food heaven.
