Very over priced Egg Benny should not cost $18! We order 4 eggs Benny and 2 coffee's and our bill with tip was over $100. I feel that is high, the food was delicious.

We met friends for brunch and couldn’t have been more pleased with our experience in this cute little unassuming restaurant. We all had a different type of Eggs Benedict and we all loved our choices! Our server was attentive and pleasant. Would highly recommend The Yellow Pear Kitchen.

A delightful surprise. The experience was just as terrific as the write up in local papers suggested. Best fried chicken ever eaten and the smoked salmon bennies will have us coming back

Had a great brunch @yellowpearkitchen today (in St.Catharines, ON). So willing to accommodate Low Carb/Keto requests for those avoiding breads and sugars! Just ask or put it in your reservation request. 👍🏼👍🏼

Short open hours so be sure to make reservations through OpenTable

Easily the best breakfast/brunch experience you can have in St. Catharines. Jay & Nicole are two incredible people, and their hard work over the years has paid off immensely and it shows. If you have the opportunity, do not skip out...go to Yellow Pear. Your taste buds will thank you afterwards many times over.

My crab eggs benedict was delicious. The portion size was healthy, but not overwhelming. I liked that it was served with a small salad. The server was attentive, checking in an appropriate amount but not too much. I did find the prices a bit high for brunch, but the quality was spot on; so the value was there. A great experience. I will definitely be back.

Yellow pear was Too noisy, too cramped and overpriced for the value. The food was good, however my plate was removed from the table when I went to the washroom and I was not yet finished eating.

It's definitely a higher price point than your run of the mill weekend breakfast, but it was absolutely delicious, and the staff had no issue accommodating a slight food preference. Sweet little restaurant, lovely staff, and the trivia cards on the tables is always a fun touch :)

This is my third time for breakfast. But not as good as the first or even the second. First of all I tried two different egg bennys: one beef brisket and one spinach and mushroom. I wish I'd just had the beef brisket because that was excellent! The other one not so much; the mushrooms tasted horrible and the texture was bad too. Very little spinach and peas and corn which I hadn't expected nor wanted. Not my thing at all. My daughter had the waffle and I had some of it - that was very good, not terribly sweet which was also good. However, I will return but so far out of all the egg bennys I've had, the beef brisket gets my two thumbs up.
