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.

This is the best atmosphere, food, in west Philadelphia! The stuffed French toast and daily specials are to die for! I love sitting in the big enclosed wrap around porch and sipping-coffee people watching. Some times there may be a wait on the weekend but I can guarantee it's worth it!

If your looking for a candlelight dinner this is not the place for you. This cafe atmosphere is bustling with great food and a fun atmosphere where friends can get together for a fun evening. We had a party of 14 at the Callowhill restaurant. Everyone enjoyed their food. I had a "special" with pasta and seafood. Service was attentive... More

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
