THE MAKING OF.... At IZOLA, we specialize in just two things - croissants, sourdough bread and community (Oops! that's three). We want to serve food Jenny and I absolutely love. Why? We're passionate about creating memorable experiences. From that 1st crispy bite of our Blackberry Croissant to the way the light falls across the tables, to the perfect serrated knife and cutting board combo to delve into a croissant without smushing it. Every detail considered (both for guest experience and our justice goals), implemented, trained and refined. In a loop of incremental improvement, empowering feedback, precision, and focus. The striking Blackberry Chocolate Croissant resulted from 18 different trials. We tested different amounts of blackberry, and different cooking methods and recipes to get just the amount of punch in the house-made blackberry jam. We taste-tested different amounts of chocolate and explored different finishing methods. In the end, we landed on a house-made blackberry compote accented with bright, fresh lemon zest, a light touch of Valrhona dark chocolate, and a simple syrup glaze for a little sweetness and crunch. Pre-orders are open now. We also hold half of our inventory each day for walk-ins, so pre-orders aren't required - you can just pop on by. Have a pre-order and in a hurry? No problem! Double park downstairs and call us at (619) 289-8358, we'll run your order down to you with a smile. We call it IZOLA DRIVE-BY.
