Now Open in a New Location: Cora's Cafe

Cora's Cafe has been a well-kept secret for decades, quietly keeping the locals fed with big breakfasts and Mexican food near the corner of Irvington Road and South Sixth Avenue.

Its new location in the old Cilantro's Columbian Grill spot at 4525 S. Park Ave. makes it much less of a secret, but the food hasn't changed a bit. I just spent a half hour nursing a breakfast burrito in the parking lot, just relaxing and loving the scene as construction workers and lovely couples drifted in for their morning meals.

If you want to impress me, slap me on the back when I enter your restaurant, as if you've known me your whole life. Speak to me quietly and point out what you like best on the menu. Treat everyone in the place like family, and tell me to come back "whenever you get hungry again." This all happened at my stop at Cora's this morning, and I am blissed out because of it.

Hours are 6:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. weekdays; and 6:30 a.m. to 2 p.m., weekends. Call 294-2146 for more information.
