  • My parents used to go to the Huron House, and I still try to go when I'm in the area. My folks always liked it, and even though it could use a wee bit of updating, there's something very nostalgic about it.
    The food has always been good! Usually I go for breakfasts, but that was when my dad lived down the street. But now I can't get over that early, but I would like to get over for one of their holiday buffets.
    Perhaps I'm slightly biased because my parents liked it so much, and they've since passed on but I still love to go in and reminisce.
    If you get a chance to go for a buffet some time it's also very enjoy able.

  • Order: breakfast / buffet

  • I go here often. It's on my way to work. And it's sorta like going back in time; a very traditional greasy spoon that's got an appealing warmth to it.

    If you're looking for a traditional bacon, egg, toast and coffee breakfast than the Huron House will serve you well. The staff are exceptionally friendly and soon recognize you a regular customer. I don't even have to order anymore; I just sit down! It doesn't really get any better than this.

    For sure, I'll be back.

  • Order: bacon'n eggs!

  • To comment on other people's posts and discard their opinion is really not being a credible reviewer. Each person is able to relate their experience as they see it. I too have eaten at this place a few times and had had hair in my food as some other people have stated. I will not go back to this place as it is my choice. For those who have had good experiences here, Good for you, for those who haven't had good experiences, they also have the choice. Remember that good news travels fast, bad news travels even faster. For the integrity of this review site please don't flame other peoples posts. We all have a choice and we all have an opinion.
    To all posters. Keep on posting the good and bad.

  • Thought I would give it one more try but was totally grossed out again. Tried to order breakfast but it was just as bad as the last time. More hair in my food. I hope the health inspector comes and shuts this dirt hole down. Just wait for the postings from the board of health.

  • Order: never again

  • i do not live in london but this was my second time here. this restaurant looks like it could use some touching up but thats nothing to say about the food. alone from there award winning roast beef the huron house may make the best burger in town. for starters i had the fetta sticks, and for any one who loves fetta this is a must have. for the main course i ordered the mushroom swiss burger. all i can say is that the burger did not need anything on it and could have been eatin with plane with a fork and knife and still would be absolutly delicious. along with the food the staff and managment were polite and quick. i would reccoment this to any one that is looking for a cheep and harty meal.

  • For the breakfast folks, this is the best kept secret in the city of London. A scrumptious fulfilling weekend breakfast that includes coffee or tea (providing that you are there before 11 am). We have explored different diners all over London and nothing yet compares to Huron House for a simple but satisfying breakfast on a weekend morning after a long hard run. All of that for only $4.75 or so per person!

    Overeasy eggs...just right and enough juicy yolk to dip my thick toast in

    Bacon...reasonable size and crispy...just how I damn like it.

    Potatoes...a pleasure to engorge

    Coffee...simply hits the spot

    I appreciate the old-school atmosphere and the comraderie of the East Londoners that continually flock to this place. Great place to just have a hearty meal and chit-chat with family and friends.

    I've read some of the dreadful reviews of Huron House. Perhaps the retro-atmosphere is not for everyone. So be it. As for the 'hair in the food' issue, I've not had the pleasure of finding any hair in my food so that I can floss my teeth with it. In all seriousness, folks, I respect the right of others to gripe about this and hope that no more unwanted hair appear anywhere to torment any unfortunate customer.

    My only gripe are the tea containers. Please update them as it is nearly impossible to pour tea without leaks bathing the table and surrounding food.

    Overall, the place to be for a simply satisfying breakfast!

  • Order: 2-egg breakfast with bacon

  • Really, this is the worst place I have ever eaten at.
    Hair in my food and no one seems to care when told about this. Really a shame that people don't care about their business.

  • We visited in October 2008 for dinner. Food was not apealing and not much variety for a buffet. If they can't have more variety why not just order off the menu? Like many others, I found a hair in my salad. Does the kitchen help not wear hair nets? A young boy of about 11 or 12 served behind the buffet and was really polite and knowledgeable. Otherwise the whole experience was forgetable. The back room where we ate was dark and looks like it has never been updated since day 1. I would definately not return.
