CORA is a Dining room and bakehouse.  Based in Boston Spa and brought to you by chef Elizabeth Cottam. (HOME and The Owl)

About

We bake fresh every day, Wednesday to Sunday, for the restaurant. Producing a range of breads and cakes. These are also available to buy to take away. The truffle sourdough is a sensation.

 

Our intimate Dining room  serves classic dishes influenced by our bakery products, and the wonderful seasonal produce available. A number of small, large, and sweet plates feature every day.

 

You can choose an individual dish or our set price combinations of 3 plates, or chefs tasting. This is available for Brunch and Lunch. 

Dinner is a choice of midweek set of 3 courses or a small tasting menu, whilst on Friday and Saturday we serve our full tasting menu to delight your palette.

 

Dishes are accompanied by our freshly baked breads and pastries from our onsite bakery by the hands of our very talented baker Rosie.  

 

Our menus can be enjoyed alongside a carefully selected drink pairing, non-alcoholic pairings, and cocktails.

 

Breads, cakes, and pastries are baked fresh on the premises every day (Wednesday to Sunday). They are all available as a takeaway but if you are after something specific pop in the day before and we will save it for you (we often sell out). We even offer a bread subscription to make sure you never miss out.

 

Reservations can be made for Brunch, Lunch, Supper, or Dinner. We do hold a small number of tables for walk-in on the day (or night).

 

We are unable to accommodate babies and children under 10 in the dining room – but all are welcome to get a takeaway.

 

Cora is a cashless business.
