Hello BattleCat!

West Asheville Izzy's is now the BattleCat Coffee Bar. From an announcement by the owners, Catie Conroy and Amber Arthur: "Fear not, our loyal customers, everything that you have grown accustomed to and love about our neighborhood coffee house will remain."

Conroy explains the name change thusly: "Amber had sold downtown Izzy's to Ross and Kristen Britton, and since that's theirs now, we just decided to go in our own direction because we're two separate entities, basically."

New on the BattleCat scene is the addition of food from Gypsy Queen Lebanese Street Food, the falafel truck commandeered by Suzy Phillips. "She's going to be here three days a week, definitely Sundays, Mondays and Fridays — maybe another day — and her truck will be parked here in the driveway," says Conroy.

Why BattleCat? "We just thought it was fun," Conroy says.
