First of all, this is really not a place for kids. They have a proper children's menu, but the food is not overly kid-friendly, unless you want your kids to eat an english muffin with butter and slathered with chocolate sprinkles. There are other options,...More

Delicious huevos rancheros. Great bacon but potatoes seemed dry, maybe baked and cut up without frying. French toast was good.

In a word: sublime. Topped with a light avocado cream. Oh, and did I forget to mention the fresh eggs over top crispy home fries. Incredible simplicity for such gourmet taste that lasted all day long.

Open everyday but Tuesday (all we ask is one day a week to sleep in a little) at 8:00 + Open to the Public! In 1862, just ten years following the arrival of the first settlers on the Mendocino Coast (and a year before Lincoln's Gettysburg Address), mill owner and rancher Charles Perkins, built the Inn's historic Ledford Farmhouse. In 1888, Perkins built a mansion on the hill to the south of the Inn and, in so doing, renovated the farmhouse to give to his daughter as a wedding present. The coffered old growth redwood ceilings you see while dining at Circa '62 were added for the wedding and were quite the statement of affluence and style for the time. We do our best to live up to the beauty of Mr. Perkins home(yes, some of our guests and staff believe he's still here) by serving a great breakfast that shows off the best local stuff, has a sense of fun and is really just an extension of our own home... We can't wait to meet you!
