  • Chef Paul focuses on local, organic food

For thousands of years people have been living and traveling to Requa (Rek-woi) for the beauty and the food. We are proud to carry on that tradition. The dinners at the Requa Inn showcase the natural abundance of the area, from the river, sea, forest and farms. Chef Thomas Wortman has set out to create a new American, regional cuisine based in the traditions of fine modern American dining. With inspiration and respect to the natural surroundings and ingredients that the native people's of this area have used for millennia, Chef Thomas has created a unique dining experience that can only be found at the mouth of the Klamath River. The dining experience is exemplified by the Salmon caught less than two hundred yards from the Inn, the wild mushrooms and greens foraged by the Chef seasonally, the modern use of traditional Yurok delicacies, and the produce and livestock raised by our local farmer friends.

Breakfast is always available at the Historic Requa Inn. Our self-serve coffee and tea service are ready around 7 a.m. each morning for early risers (almost everyone becomes an early riser during their stay at the Requa - mornings are too beautiful to sleep through).

We serve a hearty hot breakfast which will include lots of choices: organic eggs from pastured poultry (raised on a farm nearby) cooked any style; bacon or sausage and smoked salmon breakfast entrees (depending on what the chef has that morning); fluffy buttermilk hotcakes; homemade whole-wheat toast; organic greek yogurt; homemade California granola; scottish oatmeal; seasonal fresh fruit; mimosas and a variety of juices. Each guest will receive a $10 voucher towards breakfast. You'll be well prepared for hiking, kayaking, fishing, beach combing, or any outdoor activity you choose in the redwoods!

We serve breakfast between 8.00 a.m. and 9.00 a.m. during the off-season (Nov 1 - April 30th )and 8.00 a.m. to 10.00 a.m. during the high season (May 1 - October 31). You can decide if you want to have breakfast right at 8.00 a.m. so you can get going, or if you want to sleep a little later and come downstairs later - or any time in between.

We try our hardest to make sure that every dietary need is taken care of. Let us know in advance of staying if you have any special needs so we can make your stay as enjoyable (and hassle free) as possible.
