It’s always time for coffee.

It hasn’t been the easiest time for the hospitality business since Covid-19 begun creating lockdowns around the world. You won’t find many new spots opening, but in Christchurch, Izzy’s Café and Coffee Bar has gone against that trend. [Featured Image: @izzyscafenz, Instagram].

At just 18-years-old, owner Izzy Leighs postponed her plans to travel the world, and instead opened up a new coffee bar for the community to enjoy during these unprecedented times.

With delicious, fresh local food and wonderful coffee, that’s just about what we can all do with right now. You’ll find great artistic flat whites, wonderful pastries and warm smiles over at Izzy’s Café. Izzy was inspired by her parents owning a business, and used her experience of working as a barista to create this wonderful new spot.

This helps to champion local businesses of Christchurch, and on top of this Izzy even ran her own artisan market at the café earlier this month to promote others.

This bucked the trend of business in the times of Covid-19, and long may it continue! Head down to Izzy’s Cafe for a wonderful hot drink, cookie and a natter.
