The owner of the Casbah Café set his sights on opening a place to showcase traditional Middle Eastern food and culture right here in Jacksonville, Fl. A regular on most annual “Best Of” lists, the Casbah Cafe has been recognized repeatedly since its opening in 1999. With nightly belly dancing and authentic Middle Eastern cuisine, the Casbah Café has established itself in the historic neighborhood of Avondale as both a reliably enjoyable spot to hang out, as well as a reputable supporter of the local schools and community. Within two years of opening its doors, the Casbah Café was nationally recognized on CitySearch’s 2001 list of Top 10 Places to be seen in Jacksonville, which holds true today.
The Casbah Café provides an intimate, relaxing experience of delicious food, a fine selection of hookah flavors and a tantalizing glimpse into the traditions of the Middle East. A proud sponsor of the Arts and artists of Jacksonville, the Casbah is also a place to view the latest in the area's thriving Art Scene.
