Mylar and Loreta’s has been serving the Bruce Grey Simcoe community and surrounding area for more than 35 years. Opened in 1985 by Sandra Hamilton, she transformed the Hampton House as it was then known, into the dining establishment it is today. The historic building, built in the 1850’s, has had many lives. A hotel stage coach, a grocery store, a lumber and farm supply store, private residence to finally becoming a restaurant.
Sandra’s story began at a local auction. When the Hampton House came up for sale, it was her youngest child, Spencer’s, accidental bid that caught the auctioneer’s attention. For years, Sandra would regale others with the story of that day, and how Spencer placed the winning bid. In ‘the mouths of babes’, it was only right that she honour that bid. Years later, Spencer also became her partner in the restaurant.
