Five months after putting the South York Road business up for sale, the owners of a Mediterranean restaurant have closed up shop.

Kasbah Cafe, which had been in business in Hatboro for just over a year, announced on Friday that it had closed its doors. 

"It is with great sorrow that Kasbah Cafe has closed its doors," read a message posted on the eatery's Facebook page. "We would like to thank all of our customers that spent time with us this past year. You made the year enjoyable."

Chef and owner Zach Ftouh told Patch in July that his need to move to Florida with his family prompted placement of an ad on Craigslist for the sale of equipment related to 50-seat Kasbah Cafe, 119 S. York Road. 

At that time Ftouh had said that regardless of his departure the business would remain open. 

What would you like to see become of the space?

Sorry they are closing. We really enjoyed it there... both the food and the atmosphere! Will Zach re-open in Florida? If so, where? We travel there often to visit our family.

Sad news. I wasn't a regular patron, but I'm sorry nevertheless. I would very much like to see a cafe along the lines of Danielle's in Maple Glen in Hatboro that serves coffee and snacks, but also soups, salads and sandwiches and is a welcoming gathering place for people to talk, play games, read, knit, and do work on tablets and laptops. If we ever have something like that I will go regularly. And if I'm overlooking such a place, please set me straight.
