The name IZOLA (pronounced "eye" zola) is one that I've held close to my heart since I was a little kid growing up on a farm in Dodge City, Kansas. It was my maternal grandmother's name. Grandma Izola was compassionate, loving, strong-willed, super smart and put her family and community first. Even before we launched the bakeshop, we knew what it would be called. Because above all, we wanted to create a space like Izola did - one where everyone was welcome, a place where great conversation took place and laughter filled the room, and stomachs never left empty. I hope that when you walk through the front doors at IZOLA, you know you're in a place where you can linger and enjoy a hot croissant and cappuccino... 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.
COFFEE IS BACK! Cappuccinos...Iced Potions....they are back at the bakeshop! Enjoy a cappuccino made with beans from the Roots COOP in Papua New Guinea and grass-fed organic milk. Or try our Iced Potion - a refreshingly herbaceous iced tea made in-house with peppermint tea, honey, fresh mint, thyme, and lemon.
