My co-worker and friend suggested we go here sometime soon. Her schedule didn't work around mine so I took another friend because I could not wait to try out an amazing breakfast. Great and service. Very unique atmosphere.
Absolutely, loved it!

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!!!

We love eating here! The lobster on toast was new and I had that, it was amazing. My girlfriend had two bennies, one with smoked salmon and one with short rib. She loved both.

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.

This young couple have made a very successful jump from a food truck to a brick and mortar bistro. The food was excellent! I had the crab Benny and my friend had the brisket Benny; both were just great. Portions were generous, presentation lovely and the eggs cooked just right. The attention to detail on the plate did not go unnoticed. Recommend a reservation.

Can't say enough about my first experience at the Yellow Pear. From the moment I left, I have been wanting to go back. It really was that great. A real breakfast/brunch experience with the best eggs benny I have ever had, and phenomenal, down to earth service! Thanks for having us :)

Saw they had a special of the week, king crab eggs Benedict so I had to try it. It did not disappoint! The flavors were so wonderful and the salad with potatoes was just the right amount of food. We also got the sausage which was quite good. I love brunch and I think I just found my new favourite spot!

Again, an amazing experience! We had a party of 9, that was taken care of with fun and flair!
Nicole is a great hostess/server/ owner....and more.

Between us we tried the crab benny (my new favourite), the brisket benny, ham benny, grilled cheese ( with duck confit!) and bagel & smoked salmon.
The coffee is the best and the loose leaf tea selection fantastic. Love the ginger snap tea!

....almost forgot to mention the home made carrot cake with decadent frosting as a complimentary app!
Can't wait for our next visit!
