Isabel's makes a great breakfast bagel and the cinnabons are worth mentioning as well! The coffee is good and service is normally relatively quick;

Ordered two egg sandwiches - one with pesto on a croissant and another with Taylor ham on a bagel. Both were good and we would stop back to try lunch.

I live locally and was looking for a bakery. Saw that Isabel's got good reviews on Trip Advisor so I tried it out. Their baked goods are amazing! Sticky buns and crumb buns are some of the best I've had anywhere. The donuts are done just right and their muffins are perfectly moist. It's now part of our Friday morning... More

I didn't have the coffee because I was just picking up for home but they had a lot of people who were there for the coffee. The tables were full of customers, always a good sign. The donuts , breads and cakes are great. Check out the mini quiches

My family and I went to Isabel's everyday during our vacation in Avalon. The coffee is great, all the pastries are amazing, breakfast sandwiches are very yummy, and the pepperoni rolls are to die for! Everything is a 10 out of 10, or better!

Isabel's serves wonderful pastries, good breakfast sandwiches and regular sandwiches. It is a pleasant place to sit outside but they do have an air conditioned inside. You place your order at the counter and must pay cash. They have drinks in a fridge to pick what you want. They sometimes seem a bit disorganized but the proper sandwich always gets... More

Visited mid afternoon after 5 hour drive. So we didn't get pastries which look very good, just sandwiches. Everyone was very pleased. They have cups of lemonade in beverage display - very good. Nice place.
