Nabeel's® Café & Market is a family-owned business, originally conceived by John and Ottavia Krontiras. The Krontiras family believes very strongly that there should be a place in America for a neighborhood facility, much as they had in their hometowns of Patras in Southern Greece and Trieste in northern Italy. There the whole family could browse in leisure, enjoy a cup of coffee or a cold beverage, shop for the items they desired, and be warmly treated by the shop owner as a person - not just another ticket passing through the checkout stand.

John realized that there was an unfulfilled need for a place in Birmingham with this type of family atmosphere. A place where their children and your children would be welcome and safe. As a result, they purchased Nabeel's® , an establishment that had served Mediterranean products for over 20 years. The original concept of John and Ottavia, one that turned back the hands of time to quality and thoughtful personal service, is the motivation behind today's Nabeel's® . We believe we have recreated the neighborhood café and market of years gone by, and we cordially invite you to visit.
