Food Quality: I've been to Sabrina's, Callowhill St numerous times, I've never had a bad experience. My primavera is ALWAYS hot with TONS of veggies. Still holding a nice crunch. Flavors simple but simple is better. I can taste the freshness. The French toast ... dude it is always so picture perfect. Never soggy and never over sugared? Lol. Just enough powder sugar. The freaking potatoes that comes with anything your order (pretty much) has a nice crisp on the outside, soft and steamy on the inside. The strawberry jam is to die for!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Please try ! Same goes for the hot chocolate!!! Hand whipped to order whip cream. How can you say no to that!! And my favorite it's byob. Atmosphere: It's definitely a crowded place. But it has such a homie feel to it, I honestly don't even care about everyone else. Neat chalkboard art to look at. Love the counter bar seats too. Value: BANG for you buck !!!!!! Worth every penny. ( strange Green Eggs charges for everything !!! Even the to go boxes. Lmao. I'm sorry it's only 25cents. But why bother?) Service: Sabrina's have GREAT servers. They pay attention to you, even if they have to squeeze through tables to get to you. They always check up on you which means your coffee will never be cold and your water will never be empty. Green Eggs servers never checked up on us. Didn't even ask how things were. I don't care how far the travel is (45min car drive) and I do not care how long the wait is(30-45mins)! Geez right. Lol! Sabrina's is a MOST ! I can't wait until their Wynnwyd location opens! It'll will be so much closer to home ! Hahah Eat Well!

Personally, I enjoy grabbing brunch with friends at cafes because of the atmosphere. The food here is good (at least what I have ordered so far). It is definitely worth a try~ The only downside is it does get packed quickly here and the waiting area is small or a lot of times there will be dozens of people waiting outside to be seated. This is more of a problem in the winter than spring.

We recently found this place and loved it. The staff was very efficient and served us water at about the same moment we sat. I ordered a custom omelette with no problems at all. Food was very good and reasonably priced . We've done breakfast and dinner and really enjoyed both visits. Portions are great too

Bang for your buck - this is the place. And sit at the counter.

The brunch can be great, or not so great, depending what you order. Dinner is a better, and a good value for center city. Atmosphere is cute/kitschy.

Love the food, staff is super friendly and very attentive. I'm there almost weekly. Pancakes and french toast are must haves!

We have tried to like the Sabrina's in the art museum area. We've been multiple times, trying desperately to find an inexpensive and local brunch/breakfast place, only to remember why we disliked Sabrina's in the first place. It's not clean and overcrowded. And, unlike the diner-type restaurant it tries to pass itself off for, Sabrina's does NOT cook to order. For example, you cannot add or subtract anything from omelets. Apparently they make up all that stuff ahead of time so you can't eliminate cheese from the specialty omelets if you are, like me, lactose intolerant. Also, I have tried to order a fruit bowl several times with subpar results. Somehow, there are always "particles" mixed in with the fruit. My boyfriend thought that these "particles" were bread crumbs but I've never really wanted to investigate too closely. I'd rather not frequent a place that can't keep (unripe) away from crunchy or gritty stuff. After our last visit, we've decided never to go back.
