Meet Anne-Marie Ferguson, Jacqueline and Dominique Coulon of Little Lion in Ocean Beach

Today we’d like to introduce you to Anne-Marie Ferguson, Jacqueline Coulon, Dominique Coulon.

Anne-Marie, Jacqueline, Dominique, can you briefly walk us through your story – how you started and how you got to where you are today.
Our grandparents owned a restaurant in Ocean Beach for over 20 years. Our entire family worked there, and we spent our after-school time running around playing and eventually helping out with kid friendly tasks. It was always our goal to open up our own restaurant and we started working professionally in other restaurants in high school. It was a non-negotiable that we would be in Ocean Beach and follow in our grandparent’s footsteps and use sustainable ingredients and cook with care, love and passion.

Has it been a smooth road?
Fairly smooth, we have your pretty basic hiccups that come with owning a small business, specifically a small restaurant, but we have such a strong support system we have managed to bounce back each time we ran into any difficulties.

We’d love to hear more about your business.
We are a true neighborhood cafe. We have an amazing group of loyal regulars who have supported us from day. We serve breakfast lunch and dinner and sometimes we see the same customers for each meal. We are most proud of the quality of ingredients we use. Our food is simple but made with care and good technique. What sets it apart to the family we have created in our community.

Is our city a good place to do what you do?
Yes! We are lucky to be born and raised in this wonderful city and we have been supported by three generations of our family’s friends!
