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.

I enjoyed my breakfast so much at Sabrina's and a wonderful added plus of the BYOB! Only downfall was the restaurant was freezing from the draft, try to sit as far away from the entrance as possible. Would love it if they installed a door inbetween the seating area and the cold waiting area. But would go back for the... More

my girlfriends and I showed up late morning on a Saturday but the wait was managed with a smile and efficiently. They'll let you walk around a bit so we got to enjoy the Italian market setting up outside on the street- that was lots of fun. There are also great Italian coffee spots down the way so you can...

There is always a wait for Breakfast or Brunch. I wasn't sure what to expect but the food was really good. The service was excellent. Restaurant space is a bit limited but everyone, wait staff and patrons, were very polite and moved slowly in the restaurant. Not a place if you are in a hurry or want a quiet meal.

I love Sabrina's Cafe! There. I said it. Those same words flew out of my mouth after experiencing my first brunch here in December 2014. The quirky, French-cafe feeling of Sabrina's wraps around you from the moment you open the strange little vestibule doors that have you enter squarely into the middle of the place. The menu is quite thorough,... More

Breakfast is my favorite meal of the day, so anytime I travel to a different city, I look for a delicious breakfast spot! Fortunately, tripadvisor does an awesome job with getting the "skinny" on the restaurants, so I always do my research ahead of time. Although I waited in line for roughly 45 minutes, I still felt the wait was... More

We spent an excellent morning at the Barnes Foundation and asked the ticket taker to recommend a lunch place. She told us to go to Sabrina's, a couple blocks away at 1804 Callowhill St. When we walked in it looked packed but we were seated immediately. The place is tight, we barely had room to squeeze past people to be... More

Sabrina's is a restaurant that is crowded, a bit tight, a bit noisy. Why would a diner put up with that atmoshere? Because the food is outstanding in taste and creativity, the service super and the prices are moderate at most. Breakfast has so many super meals including fantastic cheese filled french toast, great omelettes, light pancakes and a delicious... More

Three of us went here for a late Sunday brunch (around 12:30). We were told it would be about a 30 minute - so we strolled the Italian market for 15 minutes then headed back over. When we checked back in we were told there would be 4 parties in front of us. We waited, waited some more, and after... More
