After frequently dining at the Beach Garden Cafe, it is closing. This is a travesty. Can someone tell me why the owner would kick out two of the nicest people and close one of the best locally run restaurants in San Clemente? Apparently the woman who owns the building and lives in Bakersfield cares not about the people who work and eat in our community. The Beach Garden has been a staple for many of us and we like supporting local businesses, especially one that has the best breakfast in town, the tastiest chowder, the most delicious blue cheese burger among many other wonderful offerings. If this women had the purview of the thriving and popular restaurant, she would beg them to stay. It’s not too late for her to do the right thing.

  • I am sure the new business won’t see many former Beach Garden customers. The BGC customers were very loyal. So they won’t patronize the new place for sure !
    Rumor its a coffee place going in…Good luck with that.


    • Why would you punish the new tenants for something they had nothing to do with. Doesn’t make a whole lot of sense. Are they not a locally run business as well??

  • While this is very sad indeed….business is business. Why would you punish the new owners when it has nothing to do with them?? They will be a local San Clemente business as well. Should we not support that? What was the reason for terminating the lease?
