Some of our favorite restaurants near the Placerville B&B

Here are some of our favorite places for a night out...and their weblinks so you can drool about what you will have for dinner after Rita's great breakfast at the Albert Shafsky House B&B.  All but Zachary Jacques is just a short stroll from the inn.

Cafe Luna, a cozy, friendly place--with big house salads and outstanding food.  They do not have a traditional website, but have started a blog with menus and recipes. 

Heyday is a small family-owned-and-operated restaurant established in January 2007, in the gold rush era town of Placerville, California. Their aim is to provide a relaxed, friendly gathering place for locals as well as visitors to our foothill community.

Sequoia is a beautifully restored Victorian, with fine dining and sense of history.
