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

Sabrina's Cafe was highly recommended by our hotel. We arrived around 11am on a Sunday-- peak brunch time. Unsurprisingly, the wait was 30 minutes (however, we were seated within 20 minutes). I'm somewhat of a french toast connoisseur, and hands down, Sabrina's stuffed french toast was out of this world yummy! In terms of the atmosphere, it is a pretty... More

we were so happy to stumble upon this. Last time in Philly our sweet waitress at Ristorante Pesto had suggested this for breakfast as well as Isgro's bakery. This time when we were in town, we stopped by Isgro's but they were closed, so headed toward the Italian Market and happened upon Sabrina's. We got a lovely table beneath the... More

Very attentive service, great food and charming decor. Very kitschy! Expect a line for brunch if you go at peak times.
