Description: 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.

“Worth the Wait!”
Reviewed October 8, 2013

Quirky neighborhood spot. We visited the one closest to the Four Seasons. Get there early for breakfast or be prepared to wait.
Food marvelous and plentiful. Booth's are small ( not for the long legged).
Ask for a table.

“Get there early!”
Reviewed October 6, 2013

The staff is the best part - every single one was attentive, friendly and helpful. The 2" thick challah French toast is delicious and plentiful; plan on sharing or taking some home. DIshes that arrived at other tables looked gorgeous. Pleasant but undistinguished decor, with lots of tables crowded together in a small-ish space, which somehow makes it feel friendlier.

This is obviously a VERY popular place. When I got there at about 9 on a Sunday morning, it looked full but I was seated right away. As I was leaving at 9:45, I had to wait for a stream of about 10 people on their way in, and there were at least 20 more waiting outside. There's no room to wait inside, which could be a real problem in bad weather.

“Lively atmosphere, reasonable prices”
Reviewed October 4, 2013

I had lunch at the Callowhill location, which is near the Barnes Foundation and Rodin Museum. There was a lively crowd on a Friday mid-day, the food was decent (brunch items, sandwiches, salads and burgers), prices were reasonable and service was good.

“Nice small place”
Reviewed October 1, 2013

It is a small place but a local one. Good food, friendly staff and reasonably priced. I liked that the locals were there the most.

“Amazingly great food”
Reviewed September 29, 2013

Such an interesting menu, hard to decide what to order! Went to the university location. Nice ambiance too. So popular had to wait 40 min. Worth the wait every plate that passed our table looked divine.
