Prefer the Calloway location. They do have a great waiting area upstairs, it's just a little too hectic. Food was great, service reasonable but in a fast pace setting.

We stopped here for breakfast for our 9 month old. We each got something off of the brunch menu, pumpkin pancakes and a chicken and biscuit sandwich. They were fantastic. (The baby had a bottle and apple sauce!) The staff were delightful. We were a bit confused, as it appears this is located inside a Drexel residence hall, so at first we weren't sure if it was open to the public. Don't worry--it's open and fantastic. Plus, breakfast is served all day--an absolute plus for me, as I love breakfast!

I've been here a dozen or so times this past year. My son goes to Drexel and I renovated a house close by so Sabrina's was the go to place. Not only was it convenient but the food and service is great. The manger Bill does an awesome job. Portions are big.

Sabrina's is the perfect place for a weekend brunch. I went with my friends and it's in house setting is nice for conversation. I got an omelette, which was ginormous but delicious! The plate also came with toast and home fries. Talk about overload of amazingness. Everything was very tasty and satisfying.

I also eyeballed some of the stuffed french toast going by and it looked divine. This is a place where you will be taking some home afterwards. I took my toast home with me. We ate around 10 a.m. and I was full until dinner at 6/7ish. And that's after walking around Philly all day. Prepare yourself for food! We didn't have to wait when we arrived, but when we were heading out there was a 20 minute wait. Getting there early seems key. Great place!

The food was healthy, and the portions were generous.
Liked the ambiance of the old home.
One block from the Cornerstone B&B and on the Drexel campus on 33rd.
