This place is a recent addition to the coffee shops in the Astoria area. Kinship is a little smaller to sit in when you need wi-fi and a java first thing in the morning, but well worth a visit. Staff are very friendly and helpful.

The food is alway good; great salads. You can usually find something made with Huckleberries and the fry bread is alway a treat. The Cafe is housed in Tamastslikt Interpretive Center and it is wonderful.

A group of us had lunch here. Other than the soup having a layer of fat on the top, the sandwiches were well made and used high quality ingredients. You order at a counter and the good is brought to the table.

The cafe is located in the Tamástslikt Cultural Institute and part of the Confederated Tribes of the Umatilla Indian Reservation. Cafe hours seem to be limited to lunch. Good food and amazing huckleberry pie!
