About the restaurant
WE LOVE LOCAL. YOUR FARM TO TABLE HEADQUARTERS.

Now well into our third decade in business, Eddington’s attributes the restaurant’s success to creating flavorful and creative meals consistently using the best of Huron County’s bounty.
Owner James Eddington states “we are so blessed to be living in such an agriculturally rich area of the world”.
Although the local food movement is really starting to take off, it has always been the driving force in Eddington’s kitchen. A menu that changes frequently, as each season inspires the delicacies our region has to offer.
Eddington’s occupies the original Carling homestead (built in the 1870’s). After two major renovations, an addition of the a new dining room and a serene outdoor backyard summer patio, the restaurant has a clean and modern look while maintaining its traditional and warm feel.

About the restaurant
The cuisine at Langdon Hall starts with looking out our kitchen windows. It is inspired by the seasons, wild produce growing in abundance on the property and the bounty of our kitchen gardens. Relationships have been built with our community farmers, foragers and artisans who hold similar beliefs of providing wholesome natural products that have been prepared with care and respect.

We create dishes with purpose, embraced with a story behind each relationship and provide a taste of the terroir of Langdon Hall. All the ingredients combined, create an experience like no other, so grand, so captivating that it is impossible to forget. As the seasons change, the menu changes to reflect the reaps of the harvest.

We have been wanting to experience Langdon Hall for years and it didn’t disappoint! The food was fabulous - not only delicious, but beautifully plated. The service was perfection - our water glasses were never empty. And the ambience is perfect - calm decor, soft classical music and comfortable and well appointed furnishings. Afterwards we had time to view our friends art on display in the dining room and art gallery. I had high expectations for Langdon Hall and I was not disappointed!!

About the restaurant
People are going to spell our name wrong, and they’re going to question the choice. Simplicity applies to all things, and burgers are no exception. We get right to the point at HAMBRGR! We give our guests the perfect combination of locally sourced ingredients, a wide selection of craft beer, culinary artistry, and of course, one of the most memorable experiences one can muster in the enriching restaurant culture sweeping over Hamilton.

The Friendly Society is Elora's best-loved neighborhood restaurant. The decor is romantic yet rustic, the vibe is hip and comfortable, and the atmosphere is always welcoming. It is located on the river, steps from the Elora Mill, with a licensed patio and live music in the summer.

Chef Marc Gebran offers classic elevated comfort food with a focus on local and seasonal ingredients. Our well-stocked bar offers a wide range of beers, a lovingly-curated wine list, and a full cocktail menu.

About the restaurant
The word ‘Miijidaa’ is from the Ojibway language that loosely translates to “let’s eat”. It's a celebration of our roots, foods, wine + brews; a chance to showcase cuisines that influenced our culinary landscape and to show off our northern bounty.

There are many influences in what has come to define "Canadian" cuisine starting with the First Nations, followed by the influences of the French, English, Vikings, Portuguese and more. Our menu is a modern take on our northern gastronomic history with each cuisine and tradition inspiring the tapestry of our culinary landscape that we hope to celebrate on our menu.

The evening couldn’t have been better. A comfortable and warm ambient …not fancy but very appealing….we were taken great care of by our server Garrett …. We started with the broccoli appetizer which was delicious, split the Soppresetta (sp?) pizza and devoured the amazing sticky toffee desert. Wine and coffee washed everything down perfectly. We will definitely go back.

It was our second time eating at Borealis, and both experiences were fantastic. Jordan, our server, provided exceptional service, paid keen attention to dietary intolerances, and had perfect timing in taking orders, serving, checking in, everything! Would highly recommend!
