Description: Born out of Robert & Raquel DeAbreu's desire to create a comfortable, welcoming place that served great food at great prices; Sabrina’s Café opened in 2001 serving up now infamous staples like Stuffed Challah French Toast, The Barking Chihuahua, and their Huevos Rancheros. A great brunch spot, Sabrinas Cafe also features creative dinner fare that is just as impressive.

Been here a few times and have always had to wait long time. I get Sunday brunch can be crowded but I can't understand the length people will wait for this place.You can call ahead but you'll still wait when you get here. The food is pretty good and service is friendly and nice. I recommend the chicken salad for... More

The Concierge at the Sheraton recommended Sabrina's and told us to take our appetites and he was right on! The place is a bit quirky but charming. Menu was extensive. Portions were huge! Meals were very tasty and I wish we had stayed in town longer so could go back again!

The atmosphere, service, and food were good, but the serving sizes were way too big! I find that amount of food unappealing. We all left over half of our meals on our plates. Probably wouldn't go back for that reason.

This is just on the edge of the Italian Market near Downtown Philadelphia and is a very quaint little cafe/restaurant. The atmosphere and setting are fun; the service is acceptable. I'm giving this a 5-star rating because they served me the best breakfast frittata that I'd ever had, and it was made with egg whites. It was definitely worth the... More

Then when we realized it we called and were told they'd looked and it wasn't there. We canceled the card. Later we found out they did have the card and just were a bit too busy to actually look. We were told by the owner he'd mail the card back to us in Mt Airy. We still haven't gotten it... More

My daughter chose this for her birthday brunch while visiting Philly based on Trip Advisor reviews. She had pancakes with strawberries --- they had just run out of French toast but the pancakes were so good. I have been eating healthier and and happy to say this was the FIRST place since we arrived in Philadelphia that had some good,... More

An atmospheric, cozy, brunch spot. Their reach exceeded their grasp as far as the brunch specials on my visit. That week they were concoctions based on "Orange is the New Black" which I guess is fun, until the food comes. It was just an overproduced mess with no real rhyme or reason. Nice staff. Decent prices. Kust quite a ways... More

This cafe is nearly hidden under a tree on Christian St but do not miss this gourmet breakfast and lunch gem. The chef prepares and presents authentic, quality food and the service was excellent. The French Toast is a local fav, the Ranchos Hueveros was the best I have ever had. The Spagetti with giant prawns was exceptional. The average... More
