About Chef Kristin...

I grew up as a local, graduating from North Bend High School. Like most, I moved away only to return home twenty years later. I’ve always had a passion for cooking, so when I came back to the coast I decided to return to school and pursue a career in the culinary field. With the love and support of family and friends, I soon found myself a graduate of the Oregon Coast Culinary Institute, and a proud owner of The Grounds Cafe!
