In case you need yet another reason to visit charming Astoria, Street 14 Coffee is now serving Stumptown. This shop housed in the same historic building as the sleek Commodore Hotel, is a labor of love and a landing pad for owners Micha and Jennifer Cameron-Lattek.
Micha and Jennifer decided to move to Astoria to pursue their gustatory interests (coffee and baking, respectively) and venture outside of academia–Jennifer has a PhD in German Literature from Columbia, and Micha has an M.A. in American Studies from the Free University in Berlin. The two met in Berlin, and ran a small coffee shop there, but wanted to be a part of a smaller community and were looking for a reason to move to Oregon. (Jennifer is originally from Portland but has spent half of the last decade in Berlin, and Micha is from Essen, Germany.) (more…)
In this collection of portraits Caleb Walter Reed has been inspired by his partner’s Christian faith. The work is a dialogue between his less spiritual experience of the world and his partner’s connection to religious tradition.

Opening Reception is 4-6pm Sunday, January 13th with music by The Strangled Darlings.
