Reader Heidi let me know that she saw a For Sale sign at Alphie’s restaurant, 5725 Hollister Avenue in Goleta. The eatery was started more than four decades ago by Albert and Ophie Tagatac. “Alphie” is a combination of their first names. The Old Town Goleta icon closed at the onset of the pandemic and was not able to reopen under the umbrella of COVID-19 rules so the family decided to sell their property, retire, and move to Colorado. The real estate, which has a rental in the back, is not yet listed but might be priced at around $1.5 million. Berkshire Hathaway will be handling the transaction.
