Circa 62 has an unusual menu in an historic building from 1862. Great service and food. Ask for a table by the front window so you can watch the birds feeding on the seed distributed in the garden.

Charming building, nicely laid out restaurant with intimate seating in small rooms. They put feed out so that you can watch birds and chipmunks outside the windows. The food was good, I really liked the French toast and the strong coffee.

Circa '62 is a quaint little restaurant at the inn at Schoolhouse Creek. My favorite item on the breakfast menu is the Chia Seed Pudding with Brulee'd bananas. But almost everything is yummy. I wouldn't order the almond flour pancakes though. They taste like cardboard....More

The atmosphere was cozy and relaxed. The wait staff were knowledgeable and fun. But the food was the show stopper. We had a variety of breakfast options and each one looked and tasted truly yummy. And isn't that what you want in a local cafe?

Open Daily 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!
