The food was exceptional! Everything was fresh, served hot and was a great value. The coffee cake to start was phenomenal and such a kind and unexpected gesture. Service was great as well!

Food is exceptional. Easily made reservations on open table. Always greeted with a smile. Dietary restrictions not a problem. Locally sourced ingredients. Everything tastes fresh and made with love. Best new brunch spot in Niagara.

They don't have a sign in the plaza, so look in the name in the window.

One of the best places you can go for breakfast or brunch in the area. I had a breakfast bowl with a lot of vegetables;peruvian potatoes, fennel, oyster mushrooms, pickled carrots , avocados, and so on. Also there were 2 cute sausages that had mildly sweet, creamy sauce. 1 egg was perfectly cooked.


Other factors were great as well.

We had a wonderful first experience at the Yellow Pear!
The atmosphere was bright, fresh and modern and we felt relaxed as soon as we sat down.

The waitress was extremely friendly and personable.

The menu was a great size, lots of different options, but not too many. All unique items and HUGE portions.

I would for sure recommend. It is very reasonably priced for what you get. :)

We will be back. :)

We made a last minute reservation for first thing Sunday morning (930 am) after seeing positive online reviews. One needs to look closely for the Yellow Pear sign below the former suishi restaurant sign, sort of a secret speakeasy approach. We were the first in the door followed by a full seating of patrons within 30 minutes. Some without reservations were delegated to the uncomfortable looking metal stool bar---make reservations to avoid. Both of our eggs benny were absolutely fantasic. The brisket benny was particularly good and the hollandaise was outstanding. Coffee was delicous. Timing, service was great, really pleasantly surprised given we had no prior expectations other than previous online reviews.

Pleasantly surprised; a new foodie find. Didn't know what to expect when we found this gem located in a Stripmall under a Chinese Sign. You need a reservation to get a table to this busy hidden place. From the coffee to the high executed meal. This was the best eggs benedict I have ever had. My celiac mother was impressed that she could eat almost the entire menu. Everything was so fresh and colourful.

Our server was attentive and made us feel at home. The young owners clearly care about every detail. We will be back.

I had a vegetarian version of the Eggs Benny and it was absolutely amazing! The owners clearly put a lot of care and creativity into their meals. The ambience is quiet, but not so quiet I was afraid to talk. I met with a couple colleagues to discuss a project over brunch, and it was the perfect atmosphere for it. One of the owners served us and she was friendly and attentive, while also being respectful of our space while we worked on our project.

Highly highly recommend!

The Yellow Pear looks like a small, quiet, ordinary place but once you are inside and experience the comfortable, friendly atmosphere and the incredible food you realize it's so much more. The food is out of this world. The menu consists primarily of breakfast/brunch type items but not ones you'd typically see anywhere else. The ingredients are always very fresh and sourced locally I believe. The combinations of ingredients they use are wonderful and so tasty. Everything is so fresh and nothing seems heavy or unhealthy. The service is good. The staff/owner are very friendly and informative about the food they serve and other services they offer such as catering. They clearly take pride in their services and what they've created at the Yellow Pear. I've been twice now and will definitely continue to go regularly. As the restaurant is physically quite small I definitely suggest making a reservation if you intend to go. Overall, amazing. One of my favourite spots in Niagara.

I’ve been a fan of the Yellow Pear Food Truck & catering for years now. I’m so happy they opened their own restaurant! The food is amazing...seriously everything is delicious, locally sourced using high quality ingredients, & the presentation is beautiful too. Jason & Nicole are great people who have created a charming & cozy restaurant. This is a must-visit food stop in Niagara!

Hands down the best breakfast/brunch place in all of Niagara. Great local ingredients handled by a chef who, in my opinion, could easily have an episode on the Netflix show chefs table. Excellent service and the staff is always very welcoming and accommodating. I will not waste any of your time writing about how amazing this place is. Just do yourself a favour and go and enjoy if yourself. Yellow pear is a diamond in the rough.

Good thing they are hidden behind a Korean Sign I want to be able to come back. This tiny gem with 6 tables did not disappoint. Its as if you are dinning in the owners home kitchen. The best Brunch and eggs Benedict I have ever had in my life. We are serious foodies and we’re blown away. If they were in Toronto they would be the top Brunch Sot. Practically every ingredient is locally sourced. Who knew breakfast could be this good. Seriously a hidden gem in the heart of St. Catharines North end. We will be back. Worth every penny.
