The choices at the Pear of eggs bennie are amazing - duck, crab, lobster and traditional. The eggs are perfect and the duck is my favourite. Service is very friendly. I would also recommend the pear mimosas - a yummy alternative.

I was expecting a mouthwatering meal. The Urban Pear just didn't deliver. Limited menu was a challenge for a couple members of our small group, but it changes often, so it may be better some nights than others. That being said, at the price point,...More
