Great breakfast food; everyone tried something different and enjoyed it. Not sure that there's anything individually that stands out, it's all good and the vibe is great. Second time in and it's still crowded! Solid service; no rush even though they are packed. Super spot for brunch or lunch, near the museums! Don't be afraid to wait a while!

We have eaten at the south philly location before and loved it, but we were staying off the ben franklin parkway this time around and the callowhill location was very close. We called ahead and put our names on the list (they don't take reservations so calling ahead is a MUST). This is a byob so we brought champagne which... More

As soon as I walked in the doors, I felt relaxed by the "slacker" wait staff who were hanging out near the front. (Slacker isn't meant as a derogatory term, but to distinguish them from the fine-groomed hipsters who have flocked to Portland in recent years.) It was a day after New Year's, so I think they were slow, and... More

I visited Sabrinas on New years morning. It wasn't that busy but I can tell that it probably gets crowded. Service was excellent and the food was outstanding. I would recommend the stuffed French toast. I would share with someone and have them get something not quite so sweet to compliment it. I had a cup of fruit which was... More

Sabrina's is a busy place in the museum district of Philly. As busy as it was, the hostess found us a table right away. The food is good, the portions are huge. There were a lot of students eating when we were there, I'm sure they loved having lots of food. The wait staff was very friendly. It is noisy... More

We moved to an apartment around the corner and had heard about this place from a bunch of friends and we wanted to visit, just never found the time. This morning we decided to go there, it was very busy but everyone seemed to be having a great time. My wife ordered the stuffed french toast, I ordered the blue... More

Was very disappointed in our visit to the cafe. Had researched and was looking forward to brunch prior to doing some touring. Staff was short and not very attentive in taking our order or bringing our bill. Food was okay. My husbands pancakes were alright, nothing special and my bagel of the day was rock hard. Coffee was ok, however... More

Wednesday November 9th. Lunch time. Downtown Philadelphia felt awfully glum - almost depressed - following the news coming in of the Presidential election result from the day before. My colleagues needed feeding and they needed good, wholesome food with no judgement on the side. This place did us proud. The portions are immense and I certainly couldn't do the excellent... More

Lively place with decent food. Swift staff and very friendly. Would go back but wouldn't go out of my way to find it again.

Great friendly place with good food.. Dad should be proud of Sabrina and Spencer. Food is reasonably priced and I like that they offer lots of vegan options

Opened in 2007 based off the same love for food, quality ingredients, and good friends that flourished Sabrina’s Cafe in the Italian Market; Sabrina's Cafe and Spencer’s Too hopes to satisfy even the loneliest of tummy's with behemoth portions and decadent fare no matter what time of the day it is. You can take that to the bank.
