Pacific Ocean Harvesters Seafood Market offers fresh fish daily

Russ Burkman owns the market with his wife, not pictured, at the Port of Brookings Harbor. The markets offers seasonal seasfood and filleting services in the summer.

For a year-and-a-half, Russ and Jaemi Burkman have owned the Pacific Ocean Harvesters Seafood market. 

Tucked next to the launch ramp and Sporthaven Marina at 16376 Lower Harbor Road, the market features live fish, including tanks of crab and rockfish. Behind the counter, Russ Burkman prepares smoked salmon to sell at the store.

“We fish everything that’s local and accessible,” he said. “If you want good stuff, you need to eat what’s available. It’s like fruit and produce — you have to eat what’s fresh and local.”

The new managers of Catalyst Seafood Restaurant have a very specific vision for their business: all local, socially conscious, and community-friendly.

Emily Likins and Adam and Izak Ehlers are the new managers of the restaurant, formerly known as Chetco Seafood. Located at 16182 Lower Harbor Road, the restaurant has been in their family for generations — but they plan to do something entirely new with the business.

Aside from remodeling the interior, Emily said, she and her co-managers have one major goal: all the fish served at the restaurant will be product of the Port of Brookings Harbor.

New Brookings bakery rising to the challenge

Owner Coreen McKinney, right, with workers Dale Hall, left, Benny Venegas, provide a sit-down style cafe where customers can relax and enjoy fresh-baked goods.

She may start her day at 3 a.m. and keep working till the sun goes down, but Coreen McKinney couldn’t be more excited to open her business, First Rise Baking Co., which opens in Brookings today (Dec. 19) at 604 Railroad St.

A longtime baker and current wholesale supplier to many businesses around Brookings, McKinney has never owned her own bakery. 

“I’m very nervous, but very excited,” she said. “I’ve had amazing support and help from local businesses.”


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.
