    This has been our main hookah bar for a few years now. The staff has always been friendly. They'll even have movie nights and show newly released movies, so that's a plus.

    Very chill environment. Love just to sit with friends, chat, play games or just be by myself and do homework. Great selection of flavors and happy hour is a really good deal.

    This has become one of my go-to hookah lounges that is close to home. Very friendly staff and a good selection of flavors. Charcoal is refilled often too. The 4pm happy hour is a nice touch too.

    Nice low key

    Nice laid back spot. Nice flavors. Only has one hose per hookah, so if you come with a group expect to wait a while between puffs.

  • *****

    It's a great atmosphere, great customer service, and the music is at good volume so don't have to shout to talk to someone the two feet away from you. I will definitely be back

    Amazing service, great crowd, respectful people, kind faces

  • *****

    This is my go to spot. Great service, great hookah, great prices and happy hour is a great deal. Great food too.

    Regular things I order: fries, apple and peanut butter, hummus and pita bread, Greek salad. But they've got plenty of options and extensive selection of hookah, like Al- Fakhar, Fumari, Starbuzz and even CBD hookah (which is CBD infused tea leaves.)

    Only thing i could knock them for is not having Coke products :(

  • *****

    The price is a little expensive but the quality is pretty good, Myst try their black cod

    Abed is awesome! He has the best the customer service and makes the best hookah bowls! Next time you come to Hidden ask for Abed :)

  • *****

    This spot is the one I like best. I eat in plenty of restaurants but to this one I go the most. The team is very cordial and the cuisine they cook is so good. I never decline to have a good dinner here. Highly recommended.

    Wow, Hidden Cafe was truly outstanding. It's a fun ambience to be in, and the menu and service is pretty great. Everything was so tasty. Crew is really helpful and can help you with everything. Hidden Cafe - Liked it.

    I love this place open late I always get the code 69 they know me by name already I would never go anywhere else but here I wish I was working there ????this place feels like home

  • *****

    The manager reached out to me and I appreciate that. It shows they care about their customers. I love this place and I really do not want go to anywhere else so thank you for making sure your customers are satisfied.

    Ps. I can't wait to try their new CBD hookahs!

    I have been to a few lounges before and I have to say this is my favorite by far. It's always really chill inside and everyone is always friendly. The owner is really welcoming as well! It is a great a place to come to on the weekends or even during the week to get some home work done. They do movie nights some times and the homemade hummus is to die for! They come by with coals often and they have a lot of options with flavors and fruit heads. There is two hidden cafe locations and the other one is pretty cool as well but I will always come back to this one! Also they have weekly deals for guests and a rewards card!

  • *****

    This is a nice seesha place. I like that the music is not too loud. I wish they had more specials though. Overall, good vibes.

    Hidden Cafe is the best hookah place in my books. Its the perfect place to study and just hang out. As a night owl studying for the bar exam, its the best spot because it opens until 2am Sun-Thurs and even until 4am on Fridays and Saturdays. They're even open on holidays! The place is so clean and the ambiance is amazing. This place is always packed with people studying, hanging out, and watching TV. The workers are simply the best, so kind, caring, and just plain awesome in every way. Don't forget the rewards program and happy hour from 4-8pm!

  • *****

    A good place lounge around. They did a remodel to the Anaheim hills location. You should check it out!

  • *****

    This is my absolute favorite hookah place!!! Great hookah. Amazing customer service. Very chill environment, and a really awesome music playlist. I've become a regular here because of how awesome everyone is. I've introduced my friends to this place and they love it too! Try their fries!! Soooo good. You won't regret coming here!

    This place is the best hookah lounge in the world. My boy Ali comes here everyday. He picks up the hottest blonde hair blue eyed women in the world. Jenny is the one to ask for. Ali told me she’s the one and only reason why men come. She’s a movie star who works at a hookah lounge. I couldn’t even imagine how many hot women come here. Mention Jenny and they give you a discount. I suggest making reservations in advance. It usually sold out. Location is best start smoking hookah and get drunk at out of park. I usually do In n out after. Ask for the $1000 table. It comes with two hot blonde waitresses who sit with you. One is sold per day. 1000 dollars covers unlimited hookah, water and tea for four hours. The rich saudis usually pay double to get it. Ask for Brook to be your waitress.

    Ze Hidden Cafe.

    Where to start. This is a hookah lounge and I am a regular. Prices are great, especially happy hour. I've come to know the owner Abood as a kind and fair owner. Summers, Danny, Mario, Greg are all great workers. All except for Brooke. Shes amazing!!!!!! always great service from her!!! And last but not least Joe, he's the best in the West.

    Sometimes the hookah can be better and a lot of times the coal service can be better. But this is the case with most hookah bars nowadays. Just hoping Hidden can rise above the rest in this regard.

    Overall a 4/5. Good place to come relax and smoke hookah.

    Smoke away
    Hidden Cafe is one of the best hookah lounges. It is very loud however and the crowd at the Anaheim Hills is a little young for my taste. Change the music!

  • *****

    been coming here for a long time. Always great service. The Staff is always friendly. Have any sort of issue? Bring it up to them and they will do their best to make sure you are taken care of. Movie nights every Sunday, and NEW movies are played on tuesday. They play tons of sports games and a good mix of music. :-)

  • *****

    I've been going here for roughly 8 years and no other hookah bar comes close. The only place that puts the hookah part first and a great place to study.

  • *****

    One of my favorite hookah places! they always have high-quality hookah and frendly staff!

  • *****

    Great hookahs and the staff is always awesome!

  • *****

    In my health-defiant, eff-cancer, hookah heyday, there was nothing better than a jaunt to Hidden Cafe to smoke 4 hookahs. Now, its been nearly 2 years since I've been (and renounced hookah), so proceed with caution.

    What made the experience here all the more nourishing was their little menu of Mediterranian appetizers and beverages to wash all that smoke down with-- fruit smoothies, hummus? They've got it. The crowd is definitely young-- newly minted 18 year olds quick to flash their now-valid ID's. It lacks the sophistication that an older crowd would favor and I doubt I'd venture here anymore. TVs are always on and the music (hip hop, house) is bass heavy.

    The flavors of hookah range from the usual Apple to more exotic offerings. Also, they do combination blends as well. There are plenty of tables and a few couches strewn about.

    I've never left here without a thick raspy voice the next day-- a mark of a productive evening. They also have a hookah VIP card-- smoke 9 hookahs and get the 10th one free.

  • *****

    I literally go here every night. For some reason, even with the music on I can focus. My favorite days to go are on Tuesdays and Sundays because they play movies. So yes, you have have to get a hookah for every two people, but you get to watch a movie for free. It's really nice if you're looking for a laid back hang out.

  • *****

    The Good: Dim and loud atmosphere, sort of like a club. If you're into hip-hop music, flashing lights, and smoking hookah, this is it. I like this place when I'm in the right mood. If you want to go somewhere chill, go to the one in Anaheim.

    The Bad: Sometimes, it could get a lot of hectic and this place does get busy during those weekends.

    Try: the iced tea. It's made very well.

    Don't Try: touching the coals with your bare hands. Obviously.

  • *****

    never had a problem here. the servers are cool just gota warm up to them. the hookahs are great, and the music though loud at times is usually pretty good, at least when they keep it on the trance/house xm station. they play movies and sports games sometimes. of course theres alot of kids that come here. what the heck else are they gona do.

    its a good place if you dont mind the kids and noise.

  • *****

    I went here once a few years back..... Pretty chill place they have a big selection of flavors..... Would definitely like to go back there some time

  • *****

    This is honestly the best hookah bar I've ever been to. They play pretty good music and it's not too loud at all, you can still have conversations with your friends. They're usually very good about getting your orders to you in a timely fashion. Even when they're busy you don't wait too long at all. They also have a great selection of flavors. And the customer service is great, they really make you feel like part of the hidden family. At least that's the vibe my friends and I get from the employees there. If you go, definitely try strawberry margarita.

  • *****

    Chill place. Movie nights are cool. Laker games and UFC fights. That's just the beginning. I've been to Hookah lounges from SF, Vancouver, Seattle, DC, NYC, Chicago, India, and Pakistan...

    You have to know the place to right a review of it. For one thing, I've been going to either Hidden for years. Why?
    The owners are friendly. The waiting staff always has change overs so I've already grown accustomed. If you want free wi-fi, some good hookah, not as loud as Dream cafe, and still be able to hang with your friends. You come here. It's clean and if you have a problem, you can tell them without backlash or anyone spitting in your food.
    They use regular coals, not the crappy quick start coals that some hookah cafes use.
    The music is a variety or mixes, from Arabic to Desi to House to Hip Hop.
    Big Groups can call in early and reserve the couches.
    They also have a frequent hookah card, for every 10 you get one free. Happy hour is every day 6-8pm hookah half off. With Hookah being expensive everywhere...it's a steal.
    It's comfy, it's lively, it's chill. Have some fun with friends.

  • *****

    I have been coming here for years and each the staff treats me with respect. They are very welcoming. I love the quality of hookah and service here.

  • *****

    ive been here many times and i never had any complaint about this place. Even if there would be a problem, i would ask and the servers there would be generous to do so.
    i came here 4 days in row this week and quite enjoyed me time there.
    the past two days we asked for a house blend, 15 different flavors, IT WAS GREATTT!!
    its like sweet with many different fruits and towards the end, its like sort of minty in a way. It's different everyday.
    the manager is really chill too, you just gotta get to know him.
    i love how they play a bit of trance, house, hip hop every time the track changes. it reallly fits the mood.
    i had a reaal sh*tty day but right when i walked in i was relaxed and having fun.
    ive never tried their food here, but one day i might, looks pretty good when you look over a table whos eating [x
    just be patient and you'll get the service youll need

    Hidden Cafe . . .

    One of the best hookah spots in all of so cal. As a hookah connoisseur, it generally takes a lot for me to leave my hookah to go out and pay for hookah.

    Hidden Cafe is that type of location. Friendly staff and owners, the more you go the more they get to know you, and they will make you feel a part of their hookah family. They use real coals, and high quality tobacco, meaning they do NOT cut corners. The music is lively, but not obtrusive enough to prevent having a decent conversation with a friend or a date.

    If you show up unannounced they will do their best to get you in as soon as they can. Once you are in, they wont try to force you to leave. If you are there, you are their guest.

    It is a fun place to relax after work or to have fun on a friday or saturday night.

  • *****

    Been going here since 2008 and I have yet to see a problem. They are very helpful and very understanding. Don't like a flavor you picked? Tell them and they will make one that'll satisfy your taste! Coal service used to be moderate but they have these new coals (coconut coals) that are insane and last about 45 or so minutes, but def. does not need to be replaced for awhile (SUPER like). Either than that, there drinks are awesome (Guava Juice / Rose water) and their food is pretty good and quick (Hummus & the sandwiches). Music is well rounded if you like R&B, Trance, Techno, and at times Persian remix music. They have two large TV's on the wall and another one near the entrance. The environment is nice and chill and their crowd is always "mature." What I love about this place is that it closes at 2AM (Sun - Thurs) and their Friday and Saturday is open till 4AM. Def a place to kick it with large groups and even small, large open space and a friendly and quick staff.

    Thanks Hidden!

    I come here at least once a month. It's a great spot to chill and relax with friends or by yourself. Free wifi. Just ask someone for the password. The hookahs are pretty damn good here. They burn longer than any other places I been to. Not to mention the selection of flavors they have. The hidden mix is just delicious. The service is great. All you gotta do is press the flood light on the table. Not that hard. If you had a bad experience here, it's because you went when it was super busy (weekends/sporting event/etc). It is difficult to get a table then, unless you don't mind waiting.
    As for the location, the name says it all. It is a bit hard to find it since you can't see it from the streets. Just turn into the plaza with the in n out and you'll find it.

  • *****

    This place is my absolute FAVORITE hookah bar! Aside from Starbuzz, I go here pretty often, because I always crave hookah and they are open from 11am-3pm and it's their lunch Happy Hour during this time :D Recently they had switched to coconut coals instead of the normal lemonwood coals, and the coconut ones last longer, burn better, and leave less of a mess. The atmosphere here is really good, and their service is bomb. The way they prepare the hookahs here is one of the reasons I come back, because they prepare it right and use starbuzz tobacco. When I come at night, I love it even more because they'll play bhangra or arabic music and it really makes it that much better when they do that! The dealio is that if you want some good hookah at a reasonable price, come to Hidden. I recommend Starbuzz as well because they offer a free refill, but it's more cozy at Hidden!

  • *****

    For a pittance ($14), you'll get 2 hours of ring-blowing hookah at HC. The plush seating is limited, but you'll be kept comfortable with a mix of Turkish/Persian and Arabic music over the PA. Hookah techs tend to your needs, bringing you hot chocolate, tea and clearing your smoking equipment for maximal pleasure. Might I recommend pumpkin and vanilla mixed tobacco, and have them sprinkle cinnamon on it as well. De-lightful.

    The owner is a cool guy and I'm probably at fault for again being connected to him through a friend and knowing him on a personal level, but that's what it's all about: MY personal experience!

    I've gone here 3 times now, in 2 weeks. It has taken a toll on my cardio program at the gym. But I'm down less than $50 total! Heyyyoooo!

    I would highly recommend taking the time getting to know the owner, a Palestinian dude with a Persian wife. He's good people.

  • *****

    Friendly staff, moderate prices. Not many other places offer you 2 hours of entertainment for $15. its a good place to go with a small group of friends for a nice social experience.

  • *****

    Amazing location. Great customer service. Great variety. Management is the friendliest I have ever had the fortune to deal with. Make the drive and experience this place...

  • *****

    a decent hookah place located in anaheim hills. i only say that because i don't have to drive that far, since its pretty much located down the street from me. lol

    my friend and i got the vanilla and coke mix, for about 12 bucks. it was decent for the price i paid. it was packed very well and the flavor and smoke lasted for a very long time.

    i also got the guava drink for 2 bucks. its comes in a 10 oz cup, but it was really nice to drink something that was refreshing!

    the coal boys come around every 20 mins, and are very professional with rearranging your coals and giving you new ones.

    they have happy hour from 6-8 daily. i believe. don't quote me on that. its 1/2 off on hookahs.

    the music is banging in here, and they play your top 40s...with more bias leaning towards house/electro. sometimes the volume gets loud, and if you wanna talk you gotta shout.

    PS: free wifi.

  • *****

    Been here a few times with friends. Never been let down. I personally like the strawberry and the blue mist.

    Dudes usually come around and fix the coals without you asking for them so you can keep smokin' the good hits off the hookah. (+)

    Happy hour 6-8, always. (+)

    House / Electric music is playing in the background.

    Sports games or movies are playin' on the tv screen. I'm a big fan of basketball and football, so this works for me when I want to relax.

    Free Wifi! Do your homework if you're in school or check up on stuff for work. (+)

    Will be coming back next week with buddies!

  • *****

    The best hookah bar I have been to. It has good music, great atmosphere, it is very cheap, etc. The owner brought me a light when I was trying to study there. The hookah is amazing. The staff is really friendly. They have cool movie nights. food and drinks are cheap but very tasty. You will not regret coming to hidden cafe. 5 stars is too low of a rating to give to this place.

  • *****

    4 stars for staying open late in anaheim hills

  • *****

    I originally went to starbuzz but the people there are fake and you cant really talk to them they are full of themselves and dont talk

    at hidden the service is great if you make a request it will happen if something gets messed up its taken care of the coal service on saturdays is a little slower...(because im kinda new and its hard to position the coals perfectly) they are fast with requests even thoe sometimes they need reminders when its busy....overall its a friendly place and its like a family.... i love it there....and i must say.....im really glad i have my current position as your coal guy....if you see me say hi and let me help you have an amazing hookah experience with me and my coworkers who will help you as soon as you turn on your led light to signal us...or you can wave or come up to us....we are all friendly people who love to hangout and do stuff that you like to do smoke hookah:) we do requests and we can surprise you with amazing blends that we have created....so come on give us a try...im sure you will be pleased....and for 12$ a hookah for 3 people....our prices cant be beaten

    and dont worry we turned our music down....and we have a wide variety of music....sometimes we even do country dances (found that out when i asked if they play it)

    love this place...couldnt ask for better customers and coworkers....if you are kind to us....we will take care of you

  • *****

    I have been going to Hidden for a VERY long time. They have half-price hookahs 6-8 p.m. which works great for me. I have tried many other hookah bars but they rarely impress. Hidden uses real and coconut charcoal, not those terrible instant light ones and they use top-notch Starbuzz tobacco. When it gets busy, service can be a little bit slow but overall this is a great hangout spot.

  • *****

    I used to go here all the time back in my early 20s. Hidden Caf's prices are very reasonable and their happy hour (6pm-8pm I think) prices are very low. Yes, they probably use cheap Egyptian hookahs and yes, the quality of the coals and the quality of the tobacco is probably subpar. At the same time, the place has a good ambience, the employees generally seem friendly and attentive, and I've always received reasonably good customer service every time I went to this place. Keep in mind I used to go to this place 1-2x/week back in the day ('07-'09).

    The seating is pretty comfortable and back in the day, they used to pay-per-view the UFC fights here which was a HUGE draw for the customers. The food here is ok, nothing special. For drinks, I recommend the mango juice, it's pretty tasty.

  • *****

    Relaxing atmosphere. Dont like how a bunch of posers are always there. Im middle eastern so i feel anyone that isnt middle eastern are posers. Sorry. Like the flavors. Like the food. Like the servers. The coal boys always come by with fresh coal.

  • *****

    Great place to just relax and socialize. The owner here is very helpful (although I always seem to get carded whenever I come in), This place is not super loud unless it is a Saturday night and there is a UFC fight going on. Also, if you go around 8pm on a Saturday night it might be crowded and you may have to sit outside so make sure to bring a jacket. Hidden cafe has very good quality hookah that lasts very long. I went once and the hookah was too strong that I could only take two or three hits before having a big head buzz, Love this place!

  • *****

    Hidden has the absolute best variety of hookah flavors. I really don't know of many places that have have so many options.. My favorite is the pond and pineapple, it's a must try.

    The ambience is really nice and so is the crew here.

  • *****

    This is the ONLY thing to do in anaheim hills. Its kindaaa ghetto..i mean ghetto by "anaheim hills" standards...but its still a chill place to hang around. You'll definitely run into someone you kno...or wish u didnt kno here.

    They play top 40s/house music..and randomly put on movies. Hookahs pretty good...great happy hr w half off hookahs too .

    Don't get the food here. Don't do it. Just don't.

    I recommend this to outsiders not wanting to die of boredom during their first night in anaheim hills.

    Surprisingly, the place gets packed every night so its prettyyyy poppin for a hookah lounge.

  • *****

    While this place is a hit or miss for me, I still find myself here on the regular.

    First, the pros. The staff is very attentive and friendly, take the time to say hi to them and you'll find out they are great people and they treat everyone wonderfully. They have a large selection of hookah including many flavors, fruit heads, iced hookah, drinks, food and more. Hit up this place at happy hour, and you won't regret it.

    The biggest benefit of Hidden, and the reason I keep coming back is the environment and atmosphere. The variety of costumers including regulars and new comers don't make anyone feel out of place, like some hookah bars do. And it doesn't turn into a crazy wanna-be club like Starbuzz does. (I'd go to a real club if that's what I wanted) It's a laid back, yet still enjoying myself kind of vibe. Which is exactly what a hookah bar should be. And if you come around often enough, you'll meet a bunch of cool regulars.

    On the flip side: Sometimes the hookah quality isn't the best, and you'll struggle for coals. I also think the whole place could be a little more clean. But I think they can work on that.

  • *****

    If you are looking for a place to go to enjoy yourself along with a laid back, fun ambiance: Hidden Cafe is your spot. Great service. Upper Management exemplify the best of qualities for how a business should be operated. If you have the pleasure of meeting any of the owners of Hidden you would understand why my review has nothing but kind words. They are awesome people and truly understand the concept of great customer service. Keep up the great work Tareq and Aboud (I apologize if I butchered the spelling).

  • *****

    This hidden just became my new favorite spot in Anaheim Hills! Saw a beautiful all glass hookah in the window and had to order it! (Why don't more places have these?) The hookah hit really well! Our watermelon mint flavor lasted longer than any hookah we've tried! Even longer than fruit heads!

    We sat outside on a nice cold night with our fancy glass hookah. The staff was super friendly and welcoming! We are definitely making this our go to spot for hookah!

  • *****

    I come here with with wife like 3 or more times a week and we both love it. We came for he first time last October, and the service was so great that we just started coming here more often. The staff are welcoming and nice. The service is great. Prices are great. Overall great vibe!

  • *****

    Great place. I come here everyday and it's just a great place to catch up with friends. Super laid back and great service. Just and all around good frequent hang out spot if your looking for a new place to kick it. If six starts was an option that's what I would give it.

  • *****

    Great place. Zach, Brittany and the staff are wonderful. They all deserve a raise.

  • *****

    Been coming here for 8 years. Great service, love all the changes to the menu. Good hookah quality. Try the harmony bowls, they make your hookah last way longer! Also try their nachos! It's a huge platter that can feed like four people! They also have buffalo sauce for their quesadillas. It's not on the menu but I highly recommend it for a nice kick!

  • *****

    I love this place and the people who work here! Great local spot. I've been coming here for years and I will never go anywhere else!

  • *****

    This Hidden Cafe is bigger than the other Hidden in Anaheim. The coal guy was very attentive, walks around and changes coals for you very often. He's also very open and easy to talk to or start a conversation with. My friend had his feet on the couch and he told us really kindly that it's a rule to keep shoes off the couch.

    I really enjoyed the music they were playing as well. Some people might not like EDM but I even went as far as to ask for their playlist. The music was definitely my taste. Sadly, they don't really have a specific playlist that they built. They said they just pick a playlist to play off of Spotify.

    It's overall a very chill spot. I see a lot of people go alone with their laptop or just go to watch tv and relax with their friends. They have a lot of foods and drinks on their menus but I haven't tried their foods, only drinks. They're all good. I would go again.

    I've been coming here for years. In fact looking through the reviews, it's a lot of people I know. But it's a great place. I used to go every night, now I go once or twice a month because of work and other things. But when I go all of the staff still remembers me, still gives me a hug and talks to me. My siblings both go pretty much every night also. It's got a lot of flavors, but if you;re a regular like me, you probably have like 3-4 that you order every time. They have some of the new heads that work really well and yes there is a $3 charge to use those heads, but it's worth it, because it hits better, and lasts much longer.
    All in all I've been coming here for years, and will continue to do so.

    Still my favorite hookah bar in California by far. It's just comfy and chill. Always come here with my friends. Even though it's an hour away from me, it's worth the drive. Yummy food, good atmosphere, and delicious smoke.

    The staff is nice and what not they have cards here which is fun haha they even took my music request everyone's usually on their laptops though so it's not like a social environment but it's not like the hookah place can help that haha

    This place is awesome from their service to the environment they create there is something for everyone here. They do movie nights twice a week (Sunday/Tuesday), they keep up with the UFC fights playing all the big ones and usually draw a pretty lively crowd those nights. The music here ranges from Top 40 to traditional Arabic music. Hidden cafe is in a great location and is easy to get to and they always make their customers feel like family from the minute you walk in the door. I have been to all the local hookah bars and every lounge seems to have a distinct vibe they create that caters towards a specific crowd which is one of the reasons I LOVE hidden cafe because they mix it up and keep the environment fresh. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!!!!!!!!

    I love this place, hookah is on point. Dark summoner cannot be beat, coals are always on time and staff is super friendly and doesn't hesitate to help if needed. Staff always checks up on you. Dark summoner alone is a reason to come here.

    Been coming here for five years very good service recommend dark summoner and white peach ice tip

    Let me start off by saying that I have been coming to this hookah bar for 5 years, on and off. In the past two years, I've been here consistently nearly 4-5 times a week, at least. I've never felt this comfortable at a hookah bar before. I'll be honest - any place you go to for this long, you're bound to encounter some problems.

    I personally have had two issues I've dealt with in the 5 years I've been coming here, and both were resolved within a matter of a couple days. It's really great to know that this place cares about customer satisfaction and comfort. That being said, the hookah is wonderful 9/10 times and the one time it isn't, it's fixed within minutes.

    The thing I like most about this place is that the staff takes the time to get to know their customers. Recently they hired a new employee and the first round of coals he brought out, he was sure to learn our names. Everyone always greets me when I come in, and they also always get my order started (I smoke the same flavor every time I'm there). It's nice to know that despite the many regulars they have, they always remember us and our flavor.

    Definitely check this place out - it has a chill vibe, they play good music, and it's a nice place to be able to talk and catch up with people (unlike hookah bars where you have to yell even if you're talking to someone right next to you). My personal recommendation is Paan Spiced Chai with a sprinkle of Winterfresh, in a harmony bowl. :)

    Best sheesha place in OC. You know a place is legit when you see the same faces consistently week after week and the owner (Abood - correct spelling hopefully!) know's everyone by their name.. He's extremely warm and personable and overall there is a very homely chill vibe. Whether you're going to study, chill or watch a game, it's a great spot! The Hookah is top quality (Pink Mint is the ONE!!) and it lasts a good while. It's also the best priced hookah you'll find around with great happy hour refills. The guys (and girl) who work there are all lovely, friendly and helpful. If you have an issue, they fix it. I discovered this place last year and I can't stop reccomending it to others. Also, you need to try their fresh fruit juice (with ginger), chicken tenders and fries. AMAZING. Again, the flavor and quality is phenomenal. Love you, Hidden! :) Please check them out if you haven't already!

    This hookah bar is amazing and always treats my boyfriend and I perfect. We go there all the time and before we even get in the place to sit the workers already have the hookah ready for us. The service is amazing and such respectful people. Days after work relaxing with my boyfriend at hidden is the best feeling ever. Thank you for everything

    Ze Hidden Cafe.

    Where to start. This is a hookah lounge and I am a regular. Prices are great, especially happy hour. I've come to know the owner Abood as a kind and fair owner. Summers, Danny, Mario, Greg are all great workers. All except for Brooke. Shes amazing!!!!!! always great service from her!!!

    Sometimes the hookah can be better and a lot of times the coal service can be better. But this is the case with most hookah bars nowadays. Just hoping Hidden can rise above the rest in this regard.

    Overall a 4/5. Good place to come relax and smoke hookah.

    This hookah lounge is always awesome. It doesnt matter who is working; Greg, Jimmy, Kaitlyn, Julian and who ever else works there. They are always super nice. Coals are brought at the right time and everyone is always super nice. Definitely a spot to check out anytime of the day

    This place is the best hookah lounge in orange county by far if your looking for a place to chill with friends great staff abed joe khoi X etc. My flavor recomandation is the blue mist and pink. Their customer service is phenomenal and they treat their customers with the highest respect which is a rare find the hookah community. Timely coals and quality hookahs! 5 stars isn't enough for this place!!

    Excellent service here, along with good quality hookah! Would definitely recommend the pan masala hookah. Also good music and it's not too loud. Lives up to it's name, it's quite hidden.

    I had not been to Hidden Cafe since high school but it was just as fun as I remember it. It is a nice place to hangout and smoke hookah with friends. It's a very chill environment with great music playing and plenty of TV's hanging on the wall for you to watch whatever your heart desires.

    They have a variety of flavors available which is great because you can order whatever you are craving that day/evening. The coal service here is great so you are never really waiting for coals.

    When we got our hookah, it was not hitting very well. We let the gentleman know and he fixed it right away and brought it back out to us (great customer service!).

    Ladies-the women's bathroom is HUGE so you do not feel cramped. It was very clean when I used it, which is a BIG plus in my book.
