If you are visiting Philadelphia, Sabrina's Cafe is off the beaten tourist path but worth the Uber ride. The building itself appears to be an old brownstone style house. The hardwood floors are beautiful. The food was amazing and the prices are very inexpensive. My friend and I shared a HALF order of French Toast and each had our own... More

This place is always packed on the weekends and there is good reason. The food is very tasty. They have specials that are seasonal and you will want to try them all. The breakfasts are terrific. The portions are large. Share so you can taste everything.

My 2 children and I arrived on a Saturday morning. I had looked it up and was excited to try this before our jam packed day of sightseeing. It was very busy when we arrived. Instead of waiting for the 45 minutes we decided to do takeout and eat outside. They said it would take 15-20 minutes. 15 minutes later... More

We were lucky to walk in and get a seat at 830am. The service is good but the food is delicious and portions are massive. So come with an appetite and enjoy the good eats and coffee.

Sabrina's has become too successful. What once was one place, it seems like a McDonalds. Been going there more than 15 years at Christian St. You need to be there when the doors open , be the first in , or prepare to bring War and Peace to read while waiting. My major complaint remains, not so good coffee. (... More

Food was fantastic. I had an egg white and turkey bacon frittata that was excellent. Service was quick and efficient decent it being relative busy for a weekday morning. GF got the french toast which was amazing, some of the best I've had. Waitress was very polite and we didn't have to wait long for anything.

After being told we had a 45 min wait for brunch we ended up having to wait over 1 1/2 hours and watched a pretty poor performance in customer service from the people working the check-in/front end of the restaurant. Food was good, table service was very good but if you get there and are told there's a wait don't... More

My wife and I ate here for breakfast. My wife had the stuffed French toast. It was huge and she loved it. The vanilla bean syrup was not overly sweet. I had an omelette and homies (home fries). I usually don't care for home fries, but these were made from red potatoes and had a perfect crispness on the outside... More

This is my favorite restaurant for brunch in both Philly and Collingswood, NJ. The food is excellent and it's a great place to bring champagne and have a few mimosas with breakfast! The atmosphere is bright and friendly with very entertaining paintings and other decor on the walls. The only downfall is that it's so good, the wait can be... More

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.
