New owners for tea room and cafe

New owners Barbara and John Lillis plan to maintain the homey atmosphere and food that makes the cafe popular.

Four women in red shirts hustle in and out of the kitchen, smiling at customers and carrying out plates of bacon, eggs and biscuits. Rows of pies topped with billowy whipped cream sit in a display case, and people sit at tables, eating and chatting quietly. 

The homey ambiance of Dee-Ann’s Tea Room in Brookings hasn’t changed — although the cafe is under new ownership as of this week.

The popular breakfast and lunch haunt known for its pies, giant cinnamon rolls and thousands of unique teapots lining the walls, changed hands as the former owners turned the restaurant over to Barbara and John Lillis on Monday.

Couple opens Towne Buzz Tattoo and Art Studio

Victor de los Angeles and his wife, Pamela, put down roots in Brookings to start a new tattoo business.

When he was a child, Victor de los Angeles was subjected to punishment the way most people are “subjected” to fun: he had to sit down and draw.

“My mom would make me do drawings,” Victor said, sitting with his wife Pamela in the foyer of their new shop, the Towne Buzz Tattoo and Art Studio, located in Harbor. “She kind of forced me into it — she taught me to do something out of nothing.”

Originally a carpenter by trade, Victor finally began to enjoy drawing, and turned to it as a hobby in his adulthood, eventually parlaying his drawing skills — especially pencil-drawn portraits — into a career as a tattoo artist.

Victor and Pamela moved to Brookings in June after closing down their shop on Catalina Island in Southern California. Their shop, located at 16211 West Hoffeldt Lane, is open Tuesday through Sunday from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m.

LilKats Shreds: Unique clothing options for Brookings

Victoria Schiabone, right, and Sherry Fletcher design clothes they hope will appeal to school-age customers as well as adults.

The idea of shredded clothing may conjure up visions of frayed jeans and shirts on their last legs, but the staff at LilKats Shreds have turned it into a way to breathe new life into clothes.

Owner Victoria Schiabone and her friend Sherry Fletcher, who began shredding clothes several years ago, have opened a storefront at 407 Oak Street, and carry a variety of dresses, shirts and pants, all with the unique “shredded” style.

“It started as a hobby in my living room, but it outgrew the living room,” Fletcher said.


Misty Mountain: Brewing beer with a big heart

Matt Camarillo, right, and his father, Mark, brew a variety of microbeers at their Winchuck River facility.

“We’re a small brewery with a big heart. His heart is larger than yours or mine,” said  Mark Camarillo.

He sits with his wife, Hanna, on the back deck of their home, sipping pints of pale ale made by their 26-year-old son Matt, who sits nearby.

“Matt’s heart enlarged because it had to work so hard,” Mark continued, while admiring Peavine Ridge, facing his 1-acre slice of paradise on the Winchuck River.

It’s the green, serene location, about 3 miles east of the Pacific Ocean and a stone’s throw from rare, non-Californian redwoods, that spawned the name for Misty Mountain Brewing, Oregon’s southernmost brewery, just 2 miles from the California border.
