The food is fun and delicious! Right in the middle of a couple of universities, cute spot to take your student for a casual meal. They serve breakfast all day and they're all huge portions. Their burgers are very tasty with a huge selection of toppings along with some specialties. BUT, their strong coffee is absolutely the best! If you... More

Ate breakfast hear on a Saturday morning. The menus had lots of interesting breakfast options including stuffed French toast, egg white frittata, turkey bacon. We were in a hurry and our server rushed the order. We were out in 30 minutes. I've heard it gets busy on the weekends and they use an app to put your name on their... More

There is a tie between this Sabrina's and the one on Callowhill! The food is always excellent! I am a sucker for the BLACK BEAN GRITS! I am an ADDICT for them! K usually get the Vegan Tofu Scramble....however, the FRENCH TOAST IS A SIN! #dontbeasinner! It has the most eclectic flavor and presentation! I always get the hot tea,... More

I've been to 3 different Sabrina's locations. None have disappointed! Lots of menu choices, vegan, vegetarian, and carnivore included. Breakfast, lunch, dinner. Portions are generous. Prices are good. The 34th St cafe is in an historic stone home. Parking can be difficult but keep looking, it will be worth it. The Callowhill shop is smaller. Again, you're parking in Philly....

This place has amazing breakfast! The waiting line was over 45mins, but if you order to go, they'll bring it out and you can sit outside or up in their lounge.

We came here for breakfast and really enjoyed it. The portion size is very large. The Stuffed Challah French Toast was awesome, as were the pancakes. Coffee was ok and the only downside.

The stuffed challah is remarkable. Very tasty combination. HUGE. Half orders are available. The apple and chedder omelet was very tasty and well made. Home fries with onions are done to perfection. Good coffee.

Portions are huge - always a wait, but worth it. Great brunch/lunch selections. Vegetarian and gluten free options. Original egg dishes including egg white options, vegetarian options - veggie sausage - veggie cheeses steaks too. Worth a trip. Great waiting area upstairs with pool table, charging stations, comfortable seating.

We were exhausted after a long trip by train to Philadelphia, and found this restaurant nicely close to our B& B. The service was excellent and welcoming. There was a menu with a lot of appetizers for dinner, but only two dinner selections. However, many of the appetizers were ample as a dinner in themselves. I had the steamed mussels... More
