Hi-Fi Espresso, the new Redondo Beach coffeehouse touting waffle dishes called “Brock Landers” and “Chest Rockwell” from the film Boogie Nights, opened a second location this month. This time, the owners took their love of the 1970s culture and coffee to Redondo’s Riviera Village.

Jeff and Karen Prugh debuted Hi-Fi in Hermosa Beach in late-2017, and the new spot resembles the coziness of its sister cafe at 800 square feet. But Redondo has a full-kitchen and expanded all-day menu. Hi-Fi Redondo sports breakfast, savory bowls, salads, soup, toast, and the aforementioned waffles. They’ll rotate the menu with the seasons, and offer tea and kombucha.

The Prughs are Redondo locals, and chose the location for its walkability, three-block proximity to a gorgeous open stretch of the Pacific, and range of shops and restaurants. It took a year from planning to finish, and reworked a former beauty salon into its present form. They also upped their cafe game by hiring a culinary director, Brad Mathews. Matthews’ resume includes Manhattan Beach’s Fishing With Dynamite and The Arthur J.

Take a quick glimpse at Hi-Fi’s “high-fidelity” inspired name below, and check the new cafe Monday through Friday from 6:30 a.m. until 4 p.m., and weekends from 7 a.m. to 4 p.m.
