Today we picked up the cheque from the bank for the sale of our house. It is officially done. The house is no longer ours and we are now just living in a hotel waiting in Halifax waiting for our flight to BC.
To celebrate we went to the Bedford, Nova Scotia, location of Cora’s. This is where Reg and I go when we need a break or when family comes to visit. Despite all the tempting new items on the menu, we got our traditional 1990s Harvest. Brioche French toast and I got mine with an over-easy egg and super crispy bacon, covered in fruit.
Oh fruit! How I have missed you!
I admire Cora’s open-minded attitude when it comes to her menu. It is always changing without dropping the previous favourites, like the 1990s Harvest. In some ways she has defied all foodie experts by expanding her menu instead of tailoring it down to essentials.
She listens to her foodie fans and even adds their ideas to her menu like these oatmeal and chocolate chip pancakes suggested by 15-year-old Charlotte.
Now there is also a teen menu including such genius fun foodie ideas like mac’n’grilled cheese sandwiches, the brain child of 17-year-old Simon.
We feel so free now with the door to the house shut for good and moving towards our future. We even had the pleasure of having Xan, our favourite server of all time, stationed at our table. It was the perfect way to celebrate such a monumental moment in our lives. It was almost 2 pm when we finally got food to eat. We ate every bite and I came back to the hotel and fell into a coma for a few hours. Now I am ready to go out on the town one last time with friends tonight.
Cora, we know you are all over the Lower Mainland in BC but I think it is time for a Vancouver location. We just can’t live without your 1990s Harvest!
