Sahara Hookah Café has been conveniently located on W Peace St. for four years.

“About half of our business comes from college students,” said owner Naser Shamma.

Sahara has an Arabian theme throughout the café which makes for a unique Middle Eastern atmosphere. “Our best hookah flavors are Blue Mist and Sex on the Beach, and Arabian Tea known as Shai is the best flavor of tea,” said Shamma.

Students are welcome. The Sahara Café is an alcohol-free establishment with many areas that are comfortable for studying or just an evening out with friends.

There is a wide variety of tea, espresso, and a range of other beverages available from $2 to $6. Hookah Prices vary by flavor and quality prices starting at  $13.99 and peaking at $16.99.
