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 totally get the idea of a good brunch but waiting 1.5 hours (with a call in ahead of time is just barely acceptable). We called ahead and put our names down - as they don't formally do reservations. We were told an hour, we got there with about 30 minutes more to wait and ended up waiting for a... More

We went for Sunday brunch and it was a great experience. Our group had the stuffed challah french toast, omelette, steak and eggs, and eggs benedict. All were great! I would describe the menu as all your favorites done well and some with a fresh twist. Seating is limited so be prepared for a wait. It's byob, so if celebrating... More

This is my favorite restaurant to go to for brunch. Their french toast is absolutely AMAZING! Sabrina's has a very homey and a sort of hole in the wall feel to it that makes the place that much more special.

Sabrina's Cafe is a place all cities hope for in their dining arsenal. Sabrina's has fun and eclectic food choices (brunch and stuffed french toast are two major crowd pleasers and rightfully so - delicious). I also find their dinner menu to be excellent, very original and feel good. The very casual setting, surrounded by the authentically rich neighborhood makes... More

Thanks to our hotel concierge, we tried Sabrina's for breakfast. If your party size is larger than 2, be prepared to wait for a table on the weekends. It's extremely busy, and overall very little elbow room. Though crowded and noisy, its a small price to pay for the quality food they serve. The menu has a wide array of... More

Chic, cozy, fresh, good food and great service. Pancakes and french toast are the best. Recommend you try it for breakfast, lunch or dinner.

My family and I enjoyed our breakfast at Sabrina's great staff in a quaint area in the Italian market. The signature french toast was great, we all shared!

We ordered the stuffed french toast to go. The cafe is located in the Italian Market area & parking is impossible. The cafe is quaint & cozy. The staff is friendly. The french toast was delicious. Thick sliced challah bread layered with cream cheese & accompanied by bananas & warm maple syrup. I also added fresh strawberries & blueberries. So... More
