About
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.

Wonderful - super generous portion sizes and the most delicious food - we had to go back the next day as it was so good.

My daughter and I visited the Art Museum location this weekend. While the food was 'write home to mom' good it was the service that truly made it memorable. COVID accelerated the trend of impersonal service as a necessity of staying healthy, but Sabrina's has...found a way to be smart, keep everyone healthy and offer a homey experience. Our server was engaging, hand wrote our order (makes it feel special!) and ensured we had a great time.More

I was recommended this place by a local, and I am so glad that I checked it out. They were full when I arrived, but it only took the host about 5/10 minutes to find me a table (it was a Saturday morning, so being...busy was expected). I ordered the Stuffed Challah French Toast, and it was absolutely divine. The portion was GINORMOUS though - and so I could only eat about half. Make sure you have an empty stomach before arriving here. All the staff were very lovely, and it is delightfully quaint both inside and outside.More

The staff was super accommodating during our visit. This location is BYOB so our group made sure to bring plenty of bottles of champagne which the staff put on ice for us. Service was amazing and the food was great. For the quality of food...we got I thought the price was great as well.More

My husband and I have eaten at Sabrina's Cafe the past few times we have visited Philadelphia. This past weekend we were there at a busy time after a race. The restaurant was noisy and overstuffed. The food was very good, I had pancakes, eggs...and turkey sausage. My husband had huevos rancheros. It was spicy and flavorful. My husband and I enjoyed the couple next to us taking selfies and trying to eat the 6 meals they ordered! The service could have been better. We had to ask for forks and knives. My husband was served coffee before he received a spoon to stir it with. We waited at least 15 minutes before we got the check. Despite that, we'll go back the next time we're in Philly.More

Parking is hard to come by so plan ahead. Food was OK, one of the specials had old spinach and it didn’t taste good. I had one of the skillet dishes and it was OK, plenty for two people though. Service was good and the...place is very busy. I like how they’re super eco-friendly. Cash only at this place!More

My family loves to meet up at this Italian Market location for late breakfasts & early lunches. The relaxed & comfortable atmosphere is perfect for enjoying a simple meal of comfort food like pancakes, a Mac & cheese or huevas rancheros or a tasty vegetarian...mushroom frittata. When you’re not in the mood for a coffee drink, be sure to try one of their summer speciality beverages like the blueberry freshly squeezed lemonade tinged w Rosemary - refreshing & invigorating - a perfect complement to a savory meal. Servers are kind thoughtful & accommodating. It truly is a pleasure to enjoy a meal here. No alcohol. Credit cards accepted and breakfast lunch will run $12 -$15 per person. Clientele is friendly and agreeable so if you’re touring don’t be afraid to ask questions of the locals.More

I celebrated my birthday by having breakfast at Sabrina's Café. Our waitress, Nikki, was amazing. My husband and I ordered the same meal, the cream cheese stuffed French Toast. She suggested we share it since the portions are large. She was correct. My husband quietly...asked her if Sabrina's did anything for birthdays. She said, "No", but minutes later she was back with a dish of fresh fruits with a lighted candle in the middle. Amazing personal service. Thank you for making my birthday special.More

Spent the morning walking through the Italian market area which can really bring on an appetite. Checking out various places when we walked by Sabrina's which had been recommended by a friend. Lunch did not disappoint. My daughter had the veggie burger and sweet potato...fries. Nancie had the fish tacos. I had the "lite" lunch combo of fresh vegetable soup, Parmesan fries and Mel's chicken sandwich. Soup was incredible. Fries were perfect and would have the chicken again. Emily said the veggie burger was good and I took her word for it. Check out the photos. It was nice enough to eat outside on one of the sidewalk tables.More
