Lighthouse Coffee opens in Turnpike Center

I was driving down Turnpike Road as I do every Saturday morning and noticed umbrellas and customers dining outside of the new Lighthouse Coffee at Turnpike Center, the home of Vons Market, Rusty’s Pizza, and several other eateries coming soon. Last February Turnpike Center lost the area’s only java joint, Goleta Coffee Company, which closed after decades in business.

    Yes, and as I heard it, Goleta Coffee Co. was forced to change their concept, when the owner of the center decided to accept the offer from Lighthouse Coffee and didn’t want two coffee shops in the center. Are the landlords in unincorporated Santa Barbara following the lead from State Street?

    I stopped going to Lighthouse when I realize they use microwave to cook many of their food dishes.

    Also not a fan of their coffee. I don’t see them surviving against Handlebar and Dune in the long term.
