Probably have eaten here 200 times and have always had great service and great food!! A very young fun crowd and wait staff as it sits right on Drexel university campus! The manager Billy and the rest of his staff are A-one! Have interesting food for vegan and carnivores alike! Always worth a stop! Yummmmmyyyyyyy!

We went to Sabrinas on Powellton near Drexel. We did the call ahead on a busy Sunday morning so did not have as long a wait. Great spot and huge portions. Beautiful building and great service. next time we will share plates, way too much for us. However, our son was happy to have leftovers to take back to his... More

Went for breakfast on a Sunday morning. Glad we went early, as the crowds were very evident a bit later on! Our table had Eggs Benedict (with perfectly-poached eggs) and pancakes. Excellent selections and prompt service. We sat on the porch, to make it extra-nice. One diner forgot her purse, so we went back about 45 minutes later. By then,... More

Its amazing. The little building with its exterior looks like those cute restaurants in Disney parks. There is some wait time, but the food is totally worth it. They have this good lounge upstairs. The lounge has comfortable seating, sofas, window side views, Foosball table, and a Pool table. Totally loved it. They have great menu with so many breakfast... More

We went to Sabrina's for breakfast. Fantastic latte. Nice Eggs Benedict (they do it with spinach), and pancakes too. We ordered a short stack but couldn't finish it. Got the chicken noodles soup too - basic but hearty.

Nice location in an old Victorian house near Drexel University. It's a pretty place with lots of character. The dining area is small and a bit cramped. My table was wobbly and I ended up with quite a bit of my coffee on the table since it was so tipsy. All of the food was very good and they give... More

We ate here before a basketball game. Only has on street parking, it is in the Drexel area and actually part of the campus. This restaurant is in an old house with great bones. The menu is diverse, we were there for breakfast. The French toast is the best that I ever had. They do have call ahead seating. The... More

My mother, husband, two children and I had lunch at Sabrina's Cafe. My Mother had been before but it was our first time. The food was absolutely delicious. The atmosphere was very warm and inviting. I highly recommend this restaurant.

Pleasantly surprised- diverse- was visiting Drexel and came here from a recommendation. Wait service was pleasant, friendly and helpful. Menu had a lot to offer - many vegetarian plates but also burgers look good. Nice atmosphere a little tight on seating space. Would certainly try this place again.
