My friend lives in Philly and loves this place so while visiting, she insisted we experience Sabrina's. We waited a while to get an outdoor seat, but it was a beautiful day so we didn't mind. The French toast was huge and wonderful. We will probably return if we visit her again this summer.

We stoped here on a Saturday morning for breakfast before heading to the Philadelphia Museum of Art. We were in Phila. for the weekend and had heard so many good things about Sabrina's. The food and service were awesome. This was our first time eating at Sabrina's and we were so impressed that we cancelled our brunch reservations for the... More

I met friends at the Callowhill location of Sabrina's. This location is relatively small and it was not too busy. The service and meal were great. Good portions and more importantly, the food was fresh and flavourful. The Huevos Rancheros were superb. Well worth the walk for such a great start of the day meal.

Everyone know Sabrina's is the best place for brunch...it's kind of just a given around here. The way is always worth it, there are huge portions and the food is always great.

Our Philly hosts insisted that we visit here, and we were not disappointed. We arrived for brunch on a Sunday and waited for about fifteen minutes. I would have waited longer because the food and service were great. I had a huge portion of Huevos Rancheros, which was incredible and just spicy enough, while my wife enjoyed some fantastic French... More

Sabrina's is no longer open for Dinner at the Christian Street Location and it's the "go to" place for brunch on Saturday and Sunday. Best time to go is during the week. It's always great. HUGE portions (you'll blow your diet here) but worth the effort. We've been going since DAy one!

The brunch here is always to die for! The wait can be a pain in the butt, but it's usually worth it!

Whenever I am home from school, Sabrina's is always on the top of my list to visit. Always fantastic food and a great vibe. A Philadelphia tenant if there is one!
