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.

All I can say is go on an empty stomach! Servings are enough for a family of four. If you are on a budget choose one entree and feed four. All kidding aside, the food is tasty but towering. So I had the challah french tower, I mean, challah french toast. It appeared to be stacks of thick challah slices... More

This is a great breakfast spot in a slightly odd part of the city. As a local I didn't find this place until way too late, three months in. I loved the blowhole wheat pancakes, my friends had a fish breakfast dish and veg huervos rancheros. Incredibly good value for incredibly good food. A down to earth and modestly funky... More

This diner was recommended to me by the hotel concierge. It is conveniently located near the Barnes and Philadelphia Museum of Art. The menu had lots of vegetarian options. I got the tofu scramble. Instead of the usual greasy salty diner food, I get a lightly seasoned and not overly greasy tasty plateful of food. Prices are good and service... More

We showed up late on a Saturday morning and had about a 15 minute wait before being seated in this obviously very popular neighborhood cafe. My 14-year-old nephew was enthusiastic about his sunny side up eggs and bacon, and I found the homemade granola with yogurt and berries very tasty. The granola did not have great big tooth-breaking clumps in... More

My colleague got the brioche stuffed french toast and it was amazing! I enjoyed a "barking chihuahua" breakfast burrito. Great menu, yummmmy food, and really kind service. A great find =)

We had a very nice meal here, but the best thing there by far was a special hostess who I think was named Ana rose (?) She was so helpful with my grandson and we really were impressed but when we went back yesterday, we were told she no longer worked there :(

Our son, a Drexel student, lives within short walking distance of Sabrina's on 34th street. He always suggests we go here, and whenever possible, we do! Service is friendly and attentive, surroundings are casual and comfy, and, of course, the breakfast fare is second to none. During our latest visit, we each ordered different items, at least two of them... More

First I did not see anywhere mentioned that they only accept cash. Second it's byob so if you go for dinner take wine or beer. It's a place where you go for the food only not atmosphere or to watch the game. But the food really lives up to the reputation. We went on Sunday and the brunch menu had... More
