Heart- It's All Around Us...



IZOLA was birthed during a sad and lonely time at the beginning of the COVID pandemic in March 2020. Jenny and I were traveling in Europe when the borders started closing and stay-at-home orders began coming through. We came home to a very different San Diego.


With my photography business on pause, I decided I wanted to start that bakery that had always lingered in my mind. It would be a fun way to pass the time over the next few months, but I was most excited about the opportunity to reconnect with our East Village community at a time when we were all sequestered at home.


So in June 2020, we lowered our first croissants out our 3rd story window to waiting customers down below - taking the 6 foot recommendation to the max!

To connect with our community at a time when we could no longer be with one another face to face brought us so much joy. The compassion and heart that we saw in people every day, that is what kept us going and still does to this day.

Heart. It is all around us if we just keep our eyes open to it. Each of these photos were taken by team members over the past few months and I love that they see it every day too.



Pre-orders are now open for the week, including for our Blackberry Chocolate Croissant. Our house made blackberry compote sits at the center of each croissant, along with a single bar of Valrhona dark chocolate. Each croissant is topped with a sugar glaze for a sweet and crisp finish. Yum!


 Have a pre-order? Can't find a parking spot? No problem. Double park downstairs and call us at (619) 289-8358, we'll run your order down to you. We call it IZOLA DRIVE-BY.
