Operated by The Ranch at Laguna Beach, is a new beachfront dining venue located at the site of the former Aliso Creek Pier. The landmark diamond-shaped pier, built in 1971, became an extension of the Aliso State Beach for surfing, fishing and exploring the Pacific. 15 years later, a wave of El Niño storms crushed the existing structure and when engineers were brought in to rebuild it, they found the underwater canyons and powerful currents would make it difficult, if not impossible, to reconstruct and history would likely repeat itself.
Lost Pier Café has been certified as an “Ocean-Friendly Restaurant” by the Surfrider Foundation.
