In the UK 'The Pink Cafe' would be perceived as a gay friendly cafe. Is someone trying to tell us something?

There is also a 'get directions' bit which takes you to google maps. There is also the option to message them and ask for information.

When I clicked on it, it gave every street name but the one it's in. But I have got the name though other methods: Sharia Ali Ibn Abi Taleb.

Without going back and double checking, I believe that is the name I saw on the map. You did need to expand the map a little, but not much, for it to be seen.

I can't give you the address, but I can tell you how I find it, and it's really hidden away! On the main dual carriageway going towards the Sonesta, Steigenberger etc, pass the College of Art and take the first left. At the bottom of the road turn right - the "Papyrus Museum' is just to the left - then carry on to what appears to be a dead end into the garden of the Agricultural Club. It's one of my favourite places to chill, nice food, smiling service, and if anyone tries to bother me the waiters soon sort it!

You can also reach it from Medina Street going towards central Luxor - just past Omar supermarket on your right, turn left at the corner where the fish restaurant is, into what appears to be a dead end. At the far end is a gateway into the gardens of the Agricultural Club.
