Lighthouse Café is Now Open ... Again
The Lighthouse Café is finally open after closing after a brief reopening this past August, following months of renovations. The café had changed hands while retaining most of its menu and staff. The Point Fermin area café reopened on Nov. 6.
Cindy and Jason Fogle, the new owners, have a long-time connection with San Pedro. Jason Fogle was born in San Pedro and his father worked at a San Pedro hospital for 30 years.
The Fogles made a same-day offer and soon after they became owners of the new Lighthouse Café. Then they shut it down to do a full renovation.
The building is 100 years old. Renovations ranged from exposing an original brick wall that adds to the ambience to installing new plumbing and wiring. They also put in a garage door on the side of the café, letting in light and fresh air. The Fogles plan to add new dishes, such as a Monday football night special. They also are recruiting more cooks who are bringing new ideas.
The Fogles are pleased with the response the new Lighthouse Café has been met with.
“The reception has been great, the neighborhood’s been great [and] the regulars have been wonderful,” Cindy Fogle said.
