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. Chefs Thomas Wortman and Paul Hess have 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, the two chefs have created a unique dining experience that can only be found at the mouth of the Klamath River. The dinning experience is exemplified by the Salmon caught less than two hundred yards from the Inn, the wild mushrooms and greens foraged by the chefs seasonally, the modern use of traditional Yurok delicacies, and the produce and livestock raised by our local farmer friends.

If you are not dining with us, dinner options in this small, remote town of Klamath are very limited in the off season, with a few more options available in the summer. Crescent City is 25 minutes away and has a few additional dining options. We can provide dinner recommendations based on your food preferences. If you aren't joining us, you may want to consider packing a picnic or bringing something along.
We have a beverage bar in our dining room that is available to you 24 hours a day with coffee, hot water for tea and cocoa, and ice water. We also sell wine, beer, soft drinks, and juice. When you check in or come back from a day hiking in the redwoods, you'll find some baked goods to snack on.
Breakfast is always included with your room 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 that includes lots of choices: organic eggs from pastured poultry (raised on a farm nearby) cooked any style; bacon or sausage (depending on what the chef has that morning); fluffy buttermilk hotcakes; homemade whole-wheat toast; homemade creamy whole-milk yogurt; homemade California granola; scottish oatmeal; seasonal fresh fruit; and a variety of juices. 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 - May 14)and 8.00 a.m. to 9.30 a.m. during the high season (May 15 - 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.
