Front Porch Dining

Enjoy the spectacular view from our front porch while you dine!  Weather permitting, beginning April 27th, our front porch will be open every day for Breakfast, Lunch, and Dinner.

For years, The Mimslyn was known for its pan-fried chicken, country fried ham and apples, club sandwiches taller than the Webster’s Dictionary, and pies straight from heaven. Circa ‘31’s menu includes a few of those favorites, as well as fresh and savory dishes very characteristic of today. Local ingredients and seasonal produce are blended into delicious creations complimented by our freshly baked breads, delightful desserts, and impressive wine selection. Circa ’31 serves a classic breakfast, traditional luncheon fare, and elegant dinners. This space is perfect for both intimate and large gatherings.

Our chef and professional wait staff look forward to your arrival, so bring your appetite.

Reservations are strongly encouraged as Circa ’31 is occasionally closed for private functions.
