The best Eggs Benny! Fabulous with smoked salmon and fresh dill. Delicious side salad. Somewhat pricey though, Close to $80.00 for 3 of us for weekend breakfast.

First time brunch that was really delicious with a generous portion to satisfy even the hungriest patron. Owners are lovely caring people who want you to leave happy and satiated with a good breakfast using ingredients from local farms and a healthy cooking process. Interesting menu with an egg beny to love! It is more than a breakfast spot it felt like an event you want to come back to. Loved it.

Each plate was pleasing to the eye and offered unique flavours.

The Yellow Pear is by far my favourite restaurant for brunch. I love how their menu is forever changing as it offers me the chance to try something new every visit but they still bring back my favourites. The fact that their ingredients are local is special as well. Since it is a small restaurant it allows the quality of the food to be high and this remains consistent every time.

Outstanding food! We have been wanting to try the breakfast at the Yellow Pear for a while now and we are so thrilled to have found our new favourite breakfast place! This small and cosy place is a true gem, the owners are friendly and helpful with suggestions and the food is to die for! We opted for the pastrami Benny and the veggie Benny and they were both delicious. Our little one had a waffle with fruit and that was yummy as well. We will be coming back for sure!

This was my first visit to the Yellow Pear and I will definitely go back. This is a great find for a nice breakfast or lunch especially if you like Eggs Benedict. The food is awesome, the atmosphere is cozy, even the tea was delicious! It was quite busy so make a reservation.

Yellow Pear has everything down pat--from their coffee and tea to their pre-meal piece of homemade blueberry cake, to the meal itself. On my last visit I was lucky enough to have the option of "mushrooms on toast" on the menu. This dish was so creamy, so full of flavour, and embodied so much umami, I could hardly stop myself from ordering another. One of my favourite restaurants in Niagara and the GTA!

Amazing as always. Only issue that I went solo and had trouble getting a table. The only table that I could get was at 1:30, at the high top as it seems that is the only option I was given. When I got to the restaurant it was almost empty except two tables. I get it that as a solo diner I’m not as valuable as a two or four person. However, if there is an open table I shouldn’t be punished.
Food is out of this world!

Amazing food, atmosphere and service. Fresh local ingredients put together in an incredible way!
The skillet had a combination of fresh vegetables, sausage, poached egg & homemade bread that was sooooooooooooo delicious. The salmon eggs Benedict that my husband had was also a winner!

Great coffee & selection of teas too!

Our first time with the exception of minor hiccup the service was great.
I had waffle with fried chicken purple potatoes and maple mustard syrup. The chicken was so light tasting and yummy 😋 My daughter had the beef short rib with eggs, fruit, potatoes - equally yummy. We will definitely be back with more guests.

I can see why you need reservations as word spreads about this little secret

Very accommodating to vegetarian alterations - I ordered the beef brisket Benedict but made on with avocado mash instead of meat (also took it a step further and had it on their sourdough bread). Highly recommend!
