Izzy’s Coffee House Opens in West Asheville

After the closing of Waking Life in West Asheville, Izzy’s Coffee took over the space to open a sister coffee shop. The owner’s Kristin and Ross Britton opened the new location on January 16th.

“This location feels more open, it has more windows, giving us more light and since it actually is a converted house it gives it that cozy feeling.” says Britton.

She likes the comparison because they call the new location the coffee house and the downtown location is called the coffee den. Britton says, she believes they really reflect their respective titles.

“In my head I don’t compare us to Waking Life at all because we have our own identity downtown,” says Britton.
