Mia Langley grew up in Yachats and Florence where she developed a love of cooking starting at a very young age with her grandmother and great-grandmother.

Living on the coast has allowed her to harvest and learn about much of the seafood we all love so much.

Mia started working in restaurants at age 14, starting as a dishwasher. Working in restaurants provided income while attending school. She did dabble in other professions but always found herself right back to restaurants as that is where she flourished. She loves interacting with people from all walks of life. The daily challenges, the food, and creating a comfortable atmosphere for guests and team members.

After moving to Gardiner in 1994, Mia opened her first restaurant in 1997 with her former partner in Winchester Bay. In 1999 they opened DuBray’s on the Green at Forest Hills Country Club. She ran this restaurant until 2008. She then moved to Portland and began her career in the corporate world. Mia thrived in this environment. All the while getting an unbelievable education in restaurant management and finance. In the spring of 2023, Mia ended her corporate career as an Area Director for the Ascend Hospitality Group, Stanford’s Division with restaurants in Oregon, Washington, and Utah. While she loved her job, she found that she missed the closeness with her teams and guests in a single location. She also found that she missed home.

“In February of 2023, a dear friend passed away, I came to cater for the memorial. The outpouring of love and support from the Reedsport community spurred this longing to come home. The community then started talking about the Waterfront and how it needed someone to re-open it. Unbelievably, they wanted me to come home too. With the push from the community and the help of a generous building owner with a huge vision, I decided to go all in and take the leap of faith. Everything fell into place from there, hence the name Kismet’s Landing.” -Mia Langley
