Small Bites: Izzy’s coffee truck north — Nizzy’s?

Service with a smirk: The unofficial Izzy’s motto can be found emblazoned on bumper stickers available at the new truck, along with plenty of caffeine.

What: Izzy's Coffee Truck
Where: 501 Merrimon Ave.
When: Monday through Friday, 7:30 to 11 a.m.
Item of interest: The truck’s horn plays the theme to The Godfather.

This truck is located in the parking lot of Luella’s Bar-B-Que — just try to not crave ribs when you’re waiting for your coffee within scenting distance of the restaurant’s smoker.

Jeremy Hargroves runs the truck, an unusual vehicle that morphs from nondescript van to teeny-tiny coffee shop in no time. The menu here reflects that of the downtown Izzy’s. The upside? Quick-hit pull-through service with no need for downtown parking. The downside? “Sorry, there’s no Tenety here,” jokes Hargroves, referring to the Izzy’s owners’ adorable toddler.

The pumpkin latte is especially popular, says Hargroves. He also offers a pour-over-style cup of joe and a good, strong Americano.
