Fun vibe, skilled barista. My only misgiving is that the seating is not great. Otherwise the coffee is well prepared and the baked goods (bagels, cookies) are just right.

While visiting family in Asheville, I stopped by Izzy's coffee den. Very quite and relaxing atmosphere. Young lady behind the counter was very friendly and helpful. Each table had fresh flowers. Just one of those places where you feel very relaxed. Oh, they have really good coffee and lots of other goodies to have with your coffee.

My husband and I always stop here for coffee. It's consistently good. Plus, it's a local hangout for the young(er) (and, we think, more creative) crowd. I drop a few years every time I walk in. (I always knew good coffee was a good thing.) Great space that shows local art, with just enough seats, and a coffee-talented, friendly waitstaff.

Quirky, quaint, very cool place where the locals hang out. Get away from the commercialized establishments and get s fantastic cup of coffee to boot.

First of all, the coffee is delicious, and that is the most important thing. Aside from that, this shop is definitely unique in the good ways. It has a grungy, messy feel but is clean and tasteful. Lots of things to catch your eye and things you'll keep noticing. Oddly enough, i would suggest checking out the bathrooms (though i... More

Cool atmosphere/GREAT coffee! Really liked this place. They have desserts, too. Not sure what else. Was just wanting good coffee and I got it! Best in a long time!

The coffee here is always good. I stop in every week when I'm in Asheville. This is a former house that has been converted into a coffee shop. The service is fast and there are several places to sit and talk with friends or just browse the Internet.

The coffee was vey good and the scones were delicious but there was only one person working on the Sunday morning of a busy holiday weekend and the wait was long. My coffee was worth the wait.

We loved this place. We got coffee twice, though we didn't get a chance to sit and enjoy the actual space. The first time, I got a shot of espresso, which was very smooth and flavourful. The second time, I got an iced mocha, which they were nice enough to customize a little bit. I also tried the cranberry chocolate... More
