I didn't pick up from here, but my brother in law brought over donuts and coffee cake and oh my god I have never had coffee cake like this. It was unique, fresh and so so so good without being overly sweet. Isabel's will now be my go to Avalon bakery!

Unbelievable sandwiches on great breads (it's a bakery after all) with upscale flair. They have the basics but the use of herbs, pesos, sun dried tomatoes and other additions just makes this place extra special. And you can take out dessert- although you may not have room! This is an order at the counter and sit down to eat place... More

Admittedly, I'm a bit of an ice coffee snob. So when I say they have great coffee, I mean it. One size and a reasonable price plus it's not watered down like some other places around. Give it a try and you won't regret it. I have yet to try one of their delicious looking pastries but if it lives... More

Really made a great vacation morning spot. Enjoyed great coffee and a bagel every morning on the patio while watching Avalon wake up and then carried home fresh baked goods for the family.

I have been living here in U.S. over 2 years, and this was the most delicious bakery-coffee shop that I have found. During a week, I taken my breakfast there before going to the beach, and it was so good that I decided to write a review here. But you need cash to be there, once they do not accept... More

I was looking all over town for someone to help me by delivering donuts to the wonderful Avalon Beach Patrol on Saturday morning of Labor Day weekend and Isabel's came to my rescue. They couldn't have been more accommodating even though they were so short staffed. Isabel's now have my business every year! Thanks.... you are the best-The Fitzpatrick's

An average lunch spot in Avalon. I had the crab cake sandwich, which was ok, but not what I was expecting. It was doctored up with a sauce and was more backfin texture than lump crabmeat. It was just ok.

Nice place, with air conditioning on a hot day. Take out or eat there (inside or outside). They get a lot of taffic, so it can take a few minutes to get your order, but it is a high quality place.
