CROISSANTS X COFFEE A match made in heaven! Espresso drinks are now available at the bakeshop. Enjoy a cappuccino or latte made with beans from Cafe Moto and grass-fed milk (oat milk also available). Or cool off with our Iced Potion (also available hot) - an herbal concoction of peppermint tea, thyme, fresh mint, lemon and honey.
THE IZOLA FAM When Jenny and I started IZOLA, we were at the very beginning of the COVID pandemic. We were all suddenly thrust into a completely different world, sheltering at home, facing something that we never had experienced before. While there was so much unknown at the time, one thing I did know for sure was that I was missing human connection, and no, it couldn't be found on a Zoom call. So when we started baking our croissants 12 at a time, our sourdough 5 loaves at a time, we would lower them out our 3rd story window in a picnic basket down to waiting customers on the street. Those brief moments of connection brought us so much joy each day. We were stoked when restrictions were lifted, allowing us to gather inside and we finally got to meet our IZOLA family face to face (or mask to mask at that time!). Fast forward to today - every Thursday through Sunday, the bakeshop fills with friends and family. I like to stop and listen for just a moment to the sounds of the bakeshop - the laughter, the excitement, friends enjoying each other's company, strangers meeting new friends...Jenny and I are so humbled by this beautiful community that surrounds us. Thank you for starting new traditions here at IZOLA, thank you for inviting us into your lives.
Pre-orders for the week are open now. If you have a pre-order, and 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. Or if you just want to stop by on a whim because you're craving a Morning Bun, come on by. Pre-orders are not required! We set aside half of our inventory each day for walk-ins.
At IZOLA, we are on a mission to change the way Americans experience sourdough bread and croissants. To bring us a step closer to that, we want to share IZOLA with more folks throughout San Diego county. Next year we will be opening our new Dough Innovation Center in City Heights! Thank you to Heleo Architecture for the partnership as we work through the design phase and on to construction documents. Barbara, Carlos and the team are amazing. This space will become a place to gather and enjoy hot-from-the-oven croissants and sourdough. But it will also become our production facility which will allow us to create 10x-20x more croissants and share them to more locations throughout the county and beyond. It will also allow us to bring 20+ purpose-filled careers to City Heights. We have crafted the positions at IZOLA to be highly teachable - no need for a culinary degree or prior experience. We prioritize hiring for personal qualities: kindness, curiosity, integrity, self-awareness and promoting from within so that our team can grow alongside with us. If you'd like to learn more about how you can take this journey with us, join us for our next online Investor Conversation on Saturday May 6 and we'll share with you how you can become an owner in IZOLA. PS - Click here for the coolest fly through of the new IZOLA Main space (you'll need to open it on a computer, it's too big to load on mobile). You'll get to see our production area and how as customers you'll be able to peer into our sourdough production area, the beautiful sky deck that will overlook Manzanita Canyon and more...
