When friends are visiting on the weekend, why cook Sunday brunch when you can go to the Yellow Pear?

Great restaurant, great food, and atmosphere. Would defiantly go back and recommend this place to anyone. Only thing and it’s small but the owner was a bit grumpy when we were paying our bill. Just trying to make conversation and she either was having a bad day or maybe that’s how she always is. Oh well we all have bad days. But all in all a great restaurant.

This was my second time at yellow pear. I had the avacado toast. First time for this genX lady. Lol. Delicious and filling! I love mellow homey vibe and bottomless coffee. I was also please that almond milk was available for my coffee.

We had a sensational brunch experience this past Sunday. Nicole was a most gracious hostess and Jason rocks in the kitchen. The food selection is varied and something for everyone. Fresh side salad was very tasty and between the Eggs Benny, Mushrooms on Toast and Fabulous Waffle and wouldn't know what to order on our next visit. Mind you, they change the menu up weekly and I think that is what makes this creative local spot so interesting. Highly recommend this restaurant but the same goes for reservations during peak times.
Cheers!

The Yellow Pear is hands down my new favourite restaurant in Niagara and I can’t stop talking about it or thinking about it, from the time I finish my meal, till my next reservation. I have dined at the Yellow Pear with different friends or family 5 times in just over 2 weeks. I feel so lucky to have such a fabulous place so close to my home and grateful to Nicole and Matt for being so hospitable every time I walk in the door again and again. The Yellow Pear needs to be on everyone’s checklist of to do’s for 2019! Make a reso to be sure you get a table in advance and you will be simply amazed I guarantee you!!! 5 Stars ALL the Way!!!

My book club friend, Brenda, has raved about this resto the last few times so when my best friend wanted to celebrate my milestone birthday I thought of The Yellow Pear. First of all, I LOVE the name. Secondly, the food was fantastic. I had the eggs benny beef brisket. The beef was juicy and tasty and no nasty chewy bits which I always worry about with meat. The presentation was lovely too. We didn't feel rushed. The place itself is pretty, bright, great artwork to look at and me and my friend really enjoyed the culinary trivia cards on the table. The only slightly negative thing I'd say was that they didn't have decaf breakfast tea and the tea tasted a bit like Earl Grey - perhaps the teapot had not been scoured enough after the previous tea service. Otherwise it was outstanding - thank you!

This was our first time trying Yellow Pear after hearing great things- definitely lived up to the buzz! Food was fresh and flavorful. Service was top-notch... we were dining with an infant and toddler, and the restaurant staff were very accommodating. Will be back for sure!

Gourmet breakfast cuisine! Knowledgeable server helped me land on a choice I loved. My basic rule of thumb for a worthwhile restaurant experience is: “Is this something I couldn’t / wouldn’t make myself at home?” And this was deliciously exceeded.
