We thoroughly enjoyed our first visit to the Yellow Pear! Described as a casual restaurant, the simple, clean and light feel was perfect for a brunch. It is not a spacious place (28 seats, 7 or so tables) but quite comfortable. At first, it seems out of place in the small plaza but the end result is it comes across as uniquely quirky. We were served by the owner and the service was friendly and the server, obviously knowledgeable. What is most memorable and outstanding about The Yellow Pear is the food! The portions are generous but more importantly, absolutely delicious! They present flavour combinations which struck me as unusual, but do they ever deliver on taste! All food in the the meal is sourced locally which gives one that good feeling of supporting our own community. I strongly recommend The Yellow Pear but suggest one make a reservation. I will most definitely be returning to The Yellow Pear.

Our meals were beautifully presented, very fresh, and flavorful. Coffee was very good and nicely hot. We both had eggs benny dishes. The ham and pea puree was a wonderful mix of well balanced flavors. The pulled pork and caramelized onions was too sweet. The hollandaise sauce was scrumptious. Servers were courteous and friendly. All-in-all a very nice brunch experience, however, rather pricey at a $50 tab for 2 less than generous portions.

This place was AMAZING!!!!! My husband and I found it in hope to find a local foodie joint to eat brunch at for my birthday. It was so incredible and perfect that we ended up eating there again for brunch the next day. The food was fresh, local, nutritious, artistic and prepared perfectly. The owners and staff were super down to earth and friendly and genuine. When we come back we will definitely come back to the Yellow Pear for all brunches. Delicious....delicious... delicious.

Eggs Benny and Asiago toast were both delicious. Service was quick and friendly. No complaints at all, well, my brother did ask for ketchup for his roasted potatoes but they didn't carry it? I am going back soon.

Nicole and Jay have created the perfect spot for an amazing breakfast/brunch for the every day - no special occasion needed. The food is always delicious and they are dedicated and passionate about hand selecting local, in season food for each dish. The food may be what draws you, but it is these two amazing people, and the ambiance they have created, that is what will keep you coming back for more!

I grew up in a foodie family. My parents were restaurant critics for a large publication so we ate out a lot. This was the best brunch I’ve had in ages. Duck Confit Eggs Benny were so good, we returned the next day for more. Everything is fresh and fabulous.

We have made reservations the past two times we were in the area and will continue to try and get seats for breakfast when we return to St. Catharines!! Absolutely worth planning ahead for - coffee, meals and service have been extremely enjoyable and authentic.
