Cody, what are you doing to Café Delirium?  Windows are covered…closed until Wednesday sign on door.  You peaked our interest and we can't wait to see. Reason for a ribbon cutting?

You have to search carefully to find Diamond (pop. 5), but it’s a little gem well worth discovering.

This Eastern Oregon ranching village sits at the foot of gorgeous Steens Mountain and south of the tremendous Diamond Craters — an awesome 23-square-mile lava field. Grab a perch at Malheur National Wildlife Refuge for the sandhill crane migration, or watch wild mustangs gallop across Kiger Gorge. At the end of the day, you’ll want to tuck into the home cooking at the Hotel Diamond.
