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.

“Great Brunch”
Reviewed October 11, 2013

Had a delicious Sunday morning brunch at the University City location. As a single i got a seat by the window quickly, The restaurant has a nice campus ambience in a historic building. Service was friendly, terrific and knowledgable. i received good menu advice. Although it was a busy Sunday morning. I was not rushed , and was able to view the nice scene thorugh the bay window in front of me. This is a great place for a reasonably priced , delicious meal.

“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.
