Babylon Café, Our History…

Babylon Café was first opened in San Antonio by a Lebanese entrepreneur in spring of 2003. Designed after the ever-popular Hookah cafes in the Mediterranean, the concept of Shisha Café was relatively new to San Antonio.

In its early days of operation, Shisha Café only offered flavored tobacco for its famous Hookah and an assortment of teas, coffees, fruit smoothies, and sodas. Patrons watched games on the big screen TV while others chatted and smoked Hookahs.

In December 2003, its present owner, who came from a family of restaurant owners, acquired the Café. Abdulmajeed soon changed the menu to include salads, appetizers, sandwiches and plates as well as 20 flavors of Tobacco.

In February 2004, The San Antonio Current raved about our Chicken Shawerma Plate, falafel, savory pastries and baklawa.
Shisha Cafe provides top-notch Mediterranean food along with great service- a combination that can’t be beat!. Trough our commitment…
