We have rules while traveling...No National Chains and Always go someplace new. We broke that second rule because of Sabrina's. Their food and service was so amazing that we went back for breakfast the following morning...and we were rewarded with another great meal. We ate...at some pretty nice places in Philly, but our 2 breakfasts at Sabrina's were by far the best. The huevos rancheros and the cannoli french toast are both just.....wow!!!More

Consistently good Philadelphia breakfast/brunch site. Excellent avocado toast with in season avocado and tasty grain bread. Solid lox and bagels, short on capers but really tasty pickled onions. Good and safe service. Everyone in party rule is annoying in the winter when it is freezing...out!More

I went to the 9th & christian st. Location on 10/4/20 the servers looked overwhelmed they forgot my order and when it arrived the meat was raw, so I sent it back and decided to get the shrimp taco thinking theirs no way they can...mess that up, well think again the tortillas tasted like cardboard and stale. I never once got an apology the server paid no attention to use at all I felt like I was being racially profiled to be honest. I felt very uncomfortable the whole time need less to say I will not be going there again!More

The brunch at Sabrina’s cafe is so good. There are so many options for either sweet or savory dishes. The decor is cute and quaint.

I love this place. Huge portions. Great taste. The fidget spinner was both creative in design and delicious. The burgers were packed full of goodness. Mel's chicken had a nice lingering burn. Long hots=jalapenos. The powdered sugar on the sweet potato fries was a bit...different. All wonderful though!More

We came on a busy Sunday morning but the wait was worth it. Our server was so helpful and gave me input on how to order everything I wanted without it being too much food. We even tried scrapple for the first time and loved...it. A delightful experience.More

We had lunch here with friends from out of town mid-week. It was noisy and crowded at 1:00 pm, but we got a table and got water and menus promptly. The sandwiches and soup were quite good - hand made, I believe, and not just...microwaved. We had to wave to our waiter several times but enjoyed ourselves in this attractive place. The prices were very reasonable.More

It's a few blocks, about 15-20 minute walk. If you are on a timeline, I would recommend calling ahead. I typically always try to call ahead in order to ensure I get seated when I want. There's not much of a waiting area... More
