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.

The Bell and Whistle Coffee Shop, located at the Port of Brookings Harbor, is under new ownership.

Travis and Alice Sandusky of Brookings are the new owners of the coffee shop, which will retain its name, logo and most of its employees. The Sanduskys, who own Redwood Memorial Chapel, bought the coffee shop in late February from the Port of Brookings Harbor, which had owned the business since 2013.

Though this is their first experience running a coffee shop, Travis said they were drawn to the Bell and Whistle.


Restaurateur opens Fat irish pub at Brookings port

Fat Irish manager Wayne Jensen chats with another during the opening weeks of the new pub at the port.

It’s not your typical Irish pub, but it might give you a taste of a more contemporary, urban Dublin. That’s Ryan Webster’s hope for Fat Irish Kitchen and Pub, a new restaurant located at 16403 Lower Harbor Rd.


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.

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.
