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.

Sabrina's is always a nice treat for brunch. The Eggs Benedict is super tasty. Their menu has a lot of vegetarian options as well which is really awesome. Be ready to wait if you visit on a weekend during peak hours, it's always busy!

My son took us here when we arrived at UPenn for graduation. Service was great, food was amazing and the atmosphere was high energy.

Freshest ingredients, large portions, imaginative menu, consistently excellent service, reasonably inexpensive. I've been an occasional diner there for years. Show up a little early, like, 1145 for lunch etc., because it fills up fast. Be prepared to wait in line for brunch.

Family members from out of town had heard of Sabrina's Cafe, so we went there for an early lunch and had a very nice time there. We sat outside which, except for a few very loud cars rushing by, was delightful. Our waitress, Mimi, was quite attentive and helpful. Some of us opted for a late breakfast, ordering an omelette,...

I enjoyed every bite of my meal at Sabrina's however, the portion sizes were way too big for one person to eat. Not only does it entice obesity but it also wastes good food when people in our world are dying of starvation. Smaller portions would be plenty to satisfy customers appetite. Great experience but that is the only thing... More

Whenever we are in Philadelphia we stop here for breakfast/brunch. Usually we are there on Sunday but this time on a beautiful Saturday morning. We sat outside on the sidewalk under a beautiful cheery tree and enjoyed great service. My husband had an omelet which he loved and I had pancakes with blueberries and peaches. Only thing I should have... More

Ate here as we were heading out of Philly. Stuffed challah French toast was very good. I didn't LOVE the stuffing so much but the French toast was yummy. Also had the barking chihuahua- which was yummy. Nice crispy home fries too!!!

We stopped for lunch, and the inside was so crowded that I felt claustrophic in there. Opted to sit outside instead, with traffic roaring by and other diners letting their dogs on leads dance and bark all over the sidewalk. Not my first choice of a place for lunch, but hubby needs to eat! For a place right near the... More
