Well worth a visit

I took a late breakfast here before going to the Rodin Museum. Service was good, atmosphere nice and good food. There wasn't a great choice of bagels but the one I had with cream cheese was very filling and tasty. I did intend returning for lunch, which looked very good, but was too full from... read more

The food here is amazing, be sure to try out the french toast. Service was quick and delightful and the portions were generous (we couldn't finish everything).

We popped into Sabrina's today for lunch before a tour of the Barnes Museum. I had the Islander Sandwich with a side salad. The tuna was cooked to perfection and the flavors were great! My friend had an omelet and loved it. They serve nice portions; the atmosphere is casual, and the waitstaff is cool.

Used the call-ahead service and was told it would be about 20-30 minutes for a Sunday brunch wait. Perfect! Got there at exactly the 20-minute mark, prepared to wait another 10 minutes. The entrance was packed with nowhere to move for the next 30 minutes of waiting. Why have call-ahead estimates AND an app if they are going to be... More

The sunday brunch was the cat's meow. Their pancake and waffle dishes are the stuff wet dreams are made of. I like to get something sweet and split it with a friend who has something savory. The Benedict was tasty and there were a couple really nice looking sandwiches of which i regret I couldn't eat them all. Very tight... More

We were there on a Sunday morning & used the "call ahead" service, thankfully, because it was very crowded with a lot of people waiting to be seated. I was going to get something interesting, but went with the comfort of a short stack of pancakes which were very good. My husband got an omelet, which he said was o.k.,... More

My wife had a half-sandwich and soup; I ordered a Greek salad. Everything we had was excellent, and there was an enormous amount of food; we could have shared either of our meals. The bill, including coffee, was about $30 before tip, which isn't cheap for a casual place, but the quality and quantity of food made it a good... More

To begin with, Sabrina's is run so well. Staff is hyper-alert, friendly and thoroughly well-versed in what can only be described as an extensive menu of mostly elaborately composed offerings. Salads are great, all breakfast and brunch dishes are great, meat and vegetarian versions of several dishes (ie. Huevos Rancheros) are equally satisfying. I recommend Sabrina's Cafe to locals and...

My family lives within walking distance of this restaurant and it fulfilled all my expectations. It looks likes everybody loves it, for it is bustling with people all sitting in close proximity to each other, Very warm and cozy, "vintage" atmosphere, with multiple small interesting paintings on the wall. Staff is friendly and helpful, good to kids. The food is... More

People always wait in line for this place during brunch, but why? It's not even in the top ten of best brunches in the city. It's all right, but not worth the wait. Come here during off peak hours and it's actually good, but don't wait in the line. There's better stuff out there.
