Excellent service and atmosphere

This was our second trip to Phillly and we found this on our first trip. We tried another recommended diner for breakfast which was poor compared to Sabrina's. This is the best US style diner in Philly, it may not be Egon Ronay but it is an honest restaurant, giving good plain food and value for... read more

This was our second trip to Phillly and we found this on our first trip. We tried another recommended diner for breakfast which was poor compared to Sabrina's. This is the best US style diner in Philly, it may not be Egon Ronay but it is an honest restaurant, giving good plain food and value for money.

Anytime you see a long line at a restaurant, you should wonder if people wait for a reason...is it just a long line or is there a reason for that line? Sabrina's Cafe has a long line for a reason and that is the food is GREAT and in large portions. It's a cool kind of bohemian look to the... More

This place has a cool diner-like vibe with above average diner food - excellent soups and salads as well as sandwiches. I have heard they do an amazing brunch but haven't tried that yet. Also great for vegetarians.

This is one of those neighborhood gems that serve up some of the best food in town. The menu is very creative, the food is really awesome and the servings are robust. This isn't "fine dining;" this a room filled with the buzz of conversations and maybe a little over crowded but the food served is fine dinning!!!

The stuffed french toast was so good. I would hope they start taking phone numbers so people would not bunch around the entrance.

I was visiting Philadelphia with my daughter in October. It was cold windy weather. I had read about Sabrina's on tripadvisor and it wasn't too far to walk to from my hotel. We went for breakfast and knew there would be a wait but I really wanted to try this restaurant based on all of the reviews. We had about... More

When I win the lottery I will be bringing sabrina and Spencer to Canterbury to open a restaurant just for me. We had a random selection of breakfast items to share between two and all were amazing. Big portions and incredible mix of tastes and very friendly service. You should eat here.

This was my first visit to Sabrina's and it was Sunday morning. Of course it was crowded and we had to wait (about 1/2 hour) but we knew that would happen. When we got our table we were greeted immediately. I had Huevos Rancheros and my friend had the Caesar Salad with chicken. Portions were quite large and food was... More

Reliably delicious - you can count on a great dish for a fair price. We ordered the fish tacos which hit the spot and the Huevos Rancheros which the waiter thankfully suggested. Both were a perfect mix of flavors and we left feeling full and thoroughly satisfied. The coffee was wonderful and the atmosphere cozy. The staff was friendly and... More

My wife and I went in the heat of brunch time. It was busy...which means it's has to be good. We waited maybe 25 minutes and were able to snatch up to counter seats...which were actually comfortable. I got the brunch burger which was very, very good and it came with fries and I chose the Parmesan version. Wife got... More
