Coffee. That is why this place exists. Well, and art. Both run strongly here. It's Counter Culture coffee, but that's nearly a local roaster in NC. I'm slightly flooded by Counter Culture coffee in Atlanta, so I do wish there were more shops supporting very local roasters, but that is the *only* negative I have on Izzy's.
I've only been here a few times, and I always see the same friendly guy behind the counter. Seriously, he's nothing but smiles and help. The place has been completely clean. The decor is concrete and exposed piping, so dingy describes the decor and not the cleaning state. Perhaps I've just had magic timing, but I'm certainly going to keep going back to check.
