It's not just food in there, although there is all kinds of tempting goodies, but it's an eclectic mix of knick-knacks, jewelry, aprons, greeting cards (moi), etc. etc. The photos below give you an idea of a little of what you might find. The colors are a riotious combination that cheers the soul in spite of the sometimes dreary days of winter on our soggy Oregon coast........
Kate, herself, is a very perky and fun loving, energetic gal who somehow manages to keep all things running smoothly. One of the things I really enjoyed about her place is that you can 'touch' things......at least, I hope, because that's what I was doing. Just fingering, picking up, examining, smelling.........exercising all my senses.
Bakery items or lunches can either be "to go" or eaten within. And the 'tables' at this point are some old metal ironing boards painted in primary colors, with stools to sit on. I understand it's a pretty funny scene when you have some of the local burly men sitting at these ironing boards. 8-))). Katy is planning on replacing those.....or adding to them, a custom made round wood table that will seat 10. She plans on having a, hopefully, weekly dinner for those that make reservations (early!) and I suspect that it's going to be a huge success..........Stay tuned for when that happens.
TASTY KATE'S has a Facebook page and you can "like" it to receive any news of future happenings. This is going to be another great and fun place to take friends and family when they visit from out of the area, too. Right on Hwy 101, the yellow building right next to Lee's Market in the middle of Langlois.........You can't miss it. There's parking in front as well as Lee's parking on the other side of the market.

Last week the sun was out and what a beautiful day it was! Crisp and cold and the Pacific seemed to be living up to it's name, with calm waters........The hopes were high that the crab fishermen would get word that they could hit the water and as you can see, the crab pots were all ready to be loaded up and taken off, to be lowered into those secret lodes of the scurrying crustaceans that the fishermen are so secretive about. The boats at the Port Orford dock need to be kept on the dock when not working and are lowered and lifted by this enormous hoist. I think there are only 2 in the country that work this way. And that isn't working all that well anymore............nothing wrong with the hoist, but the US Corp of Engr. is not dredging the harbor anymore and the sand is filling in so that only a high tide are the boats able to get in or out. It's a real problem and many minds are working in trying to come up with a solution. (If anyone out there has any ideas, please share).......
