Jezabel Careaga, Chef and Owner

As time vanishes to the speed of light, I wake up and feel like it’s Monday again and again and again... Here I find myself day-in and day-out in this life where I wouldn’t change a single thing.
— Jezabel Careaga

It all started in a small town in argentina…

…Palpalá, located in the Northwestern Argentine province of Jujuy. Surrounded by family and very close to relatives, Jezabel always associated cooking with love and togetherness. One recollection in particular stands out as one of her most treasured childhood memories: baking and preparing food with her dear grandmother Julia who will be the greatest influence on her practice as a chef and baker.

Apart from studying Tourism & Hotel Management in Cordoba and in order to further her knowledge of business she pursued an MBA at Universidad Siglo XXI, but never forgot that the ultimate dream was to live abroad and start a business of her own. With that in mind, she wasted no time in developing a business plan, never knowing that an opportunity would cross her path in the not too distant future.

She moved to Miami in 2007 and in less than 3 years, on a warm morning in June 2010, she opened the doors to her beloved Café in the beautiful Fitler Square neighborhood, where it operated until December 2018.

”I’ve seen my dreams come true, sharing food that is very close to my roots and family; yet as dreams keep evolving I’m thrilled to solidify and strengthen my presence in Spruce Hill. The opportunity to keep expanding and creating new concepts that reflect my state in life while serving the West Philadelphia community, is refreshing and powerful in itself.”

Jezabel’s Café and Bakery now on 45TH Street is able to accommodate more guests, as well as host large groups, private parties and special events. The Café reopened its doors on January 5, 2019 with a revamped menu that still includes everyone’s favorite Argentine staples.
