Sphinx Café opened in 2003 in Pittsburgh's South Side, giving Pittsburgh its first authentic Egyptian hookah bar. The Sphinx expanded in 2004 and opened another location in the heart of South Oakland. The South Side location originally offered a mere five flavors of shisha. Today, the Sphinx has the largest variety of shisha flavors on the East coast of the USA.
Sphinx Café offers a relaxing Middle Eastern ambiance created by comfortable seating, colorful lighting, and vibrant, authentic Egyptian décor. We offer an extensive food and drink menu with traditional Arabic fare such as Egyptian coffee. In addition to a full-service hookah bar, we also carry a large array of hookahs and accessories for your hookah and for smoking pipe tobacco.
