Asheville, NC: Izzy’s Coffee Den

For a taste of local Asheville flavor, head to Izzy’s Coffee Den, an eclectic laid-back cafe located in the heart of downtown. Here, hipsters, old hippies, local musicians, and townies mingle to sip strong coffee or splurge on fancy espresso drinks, such as the ‘Karma Latte.’ The baristas are known for their artful approach to the coffee craft, so if you order a latte or cappuccino, expect a heart design or some state pride in the shape of North Carolina (or some milky version thereof).
