Great service to the customers and hookahs are a great time for friends to bond

Great Service! However, the hookah was cracked, everything, especially the floor was a bit too dirty, and everything was too expensive for me to be able to become a regular customer.

The Sphinx Cafe has been my absolute favorite place to smoke since the beginning. The atmosphere is unparalleled for relaxation, and they have an extensive selection of freshly made drinks and shisha selection. I always enjoy my time there, and bring new people in whenever I can.

Its a decent place for Hookah, a little pricey. The Groupon was for dinner for 2 and the food is AWFUL. I do not recommend for eating. No options on the menu except a few sandwiches and very bland. Worst Falafel I have ever had. Two sandwiches, two cups of tea and 1 hookah was over $60. Not worth it.

From Our Editors

Kaleidoscopic Egyptian tapestries hang on the stone walls of both Sphinx Cafe locations, while tendrils of jasmine- and mango-scented smoke drift up to high, vaulted ceilings. Though it was once a church, the space now exudes an aura of opulence and leisure that matches the warmth of the coffee houses in Egyptian owner Remy and Syrian Amera's native homes. “Hookah bars are different from the norm [in the U.S.], which is either a restaurant or a bar. It slows you down. You just relax here.”

Plush cushions help patrons relax at both of Sphinx Pittsburgh locations, as do more than 30 imported tobacco flavors that servers can enhance with creative add-ons such as wine, fruit syrups, and talking caterpillars. On some nights, belly dancers, fire eaters, and live musicians wind their way between hookahs. On quieter nights, Ms. Andrawes says you can find people playing card games, chatting, and sampling platters of homemade hummus and kibbeh.
