Goleta Coffee Company to close

Readers Rach, Peter, and Annie let me know that the Goleta Coffee Company at 177 South Turnpike Road will be closing February 16th after 25 years in business. Ownership of the java joint changed hands in September 2019. Rumor has it that another coffee shop is opening up across the parking lot where a food court was recently built, and is slowly populating with tenants, though none have started serving customers.

1/17/22 message in comments from reader Stacy: “Goleta Coffee Co is indeed closing on February 15, but Loca Vivant Kitchen will continue in a new wholesale location. We will still be making all of our gluten-free and vegan baked goods and breads, and we will continue to offer healthy prepared foods made from locally-sourced seasonal ingredients. There will be pick-up and delivery options during the couple of months that it takes for our transition to wholesale, and then we will be collaborating small business retail partners to offer our items in many more places around town. We will be hosting a party on our last day in business (Feb 15) and will be using all proceeds from that day toward severance pay for all of our amazing employees. Please stop by and pay us a visit on Feb 15, and as many times as you can between now and then!”
