I entered Breakfast on my google maps and this place popped up. I liked the menu and review so I decided to check them out. My favorite thing was how homely the atmosphere and workers were at this place.Everyone else seemed to be locals and that gave it such a non-touristy vibe, which I loved. And the food was really...

I normally walk around with a loaf of GF bread when I travel. It's not everywhere, yet! I forgot my bread in the hotel. :( But came here to get some work done (they have wifi!!!) and they told me they not only have GF bread, they'll make their French Toast for me with the GF bread! They have soy... More

We were lucky enough to get a table for four and a table for two because all tables for big groups were already occupied. I could tell this was a favorite breakfast place because the place was packed and more people were waiting for their seats as we ate. If you're not a breakfast person or someone who eats a... More

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

Description
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.
