“Amazing food in wonderful portions served by great staff in a charming atmosphere. Winter do your worst!”
The title says it all, but I'll elaborate here. First, note that I have been coming to Sabrina's since the first one opened on Christian Street. They have 3 now, with a 4th slated to open in February. Each location has its very specific charms. The menus are essentially the same but there can be subtle and delicious differences between locations for the same things. I suspect that the managment might not want to hear that but the subtleties are GOOD. I have probably eaten at Sabrinas over 100 times and can honestly say that I've never had a bad meal there. I also know from seeing the occasional interaction between waitstaff and other customers (i.e., not me) that they really do go out of their way for people. This is particularly nice when they are dealing with a super busy brunch or packed dinner. It's also a nice place for a business lunch or brunch since the waitstaff can be relied upon to be attentive but discreet in terms of not showing up and interrupting discussions every two minutes. Would I take someone here on a classy date? Have and do. Prefer to spend a little extra on the opera or symphony tickets and come here before or after. The food is just as good as at places charging 3 times as much (better, I'd argue, but I'm not much for obnoxiously skimpy little cheese plates) and the unpretentious atmosphere is perfect for light or deep discussion
My favorites? Barking Chiwawa (spelling) breakfast burrito, Blue Cheese Frittata, Asian or Greek Salad (might be Mediterranean salad - I get them mixed up), The Mediterannean Wrap, The Greek Tilapia dish, Anything they are doing with Salmon, and of course the Calamari.
Oh and of course their omelletes and tofu scrambles. I'm told their French Toast is awesome but that looks like just too much happiness for me.
Anyway, you can't go wrong here, so give it a try if you are in town for a visit. And if you are a resident and have never come here, doubly give it a try. It's everything Philly ought to be but sometimes isn't. If you've lived here for any length of time you probably know what I mean.
