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.

My husband, two kids and i enjoyed a relaxing lunch here during a holiday visit to Philadelphia. We easily found parking nearby (big plus), walked in, and were seated right away. The menu was small but comprehensive and included salads, soups and sandwiches. My daughter ordered chicken tenders and fries off the kids menu, and the tenders were obviously homemade... More

We ate lunch in this charming place inside a vintage building. Nice menu with good descriptions of the entrees. It is a bit of a funky/college neighborhood place. Waitress was a doll and the food was very good. i had a very big salad( It was the "small" size) Buffalo chicken with lots of interesting tidbits and a lovely salad... More

Finally ate here while visiting our son at Drexel. Nice old Victorian building. We had brunch and we all enjoyed our meals. We mostly ordered from the Halloween specials though one had the mexi scramble and another the pulled pork sandwich. Absolutely no complaints.

We ate breakfast here on our way before going to Penn Museum. My goodness what a great choice to eat here. The portions were gigantic and each of the four of us ordered different meals. My husband and I shared our meals and it is a hard choice which one was the best. Instead of having the potatoes I substituted... More

We sat on the enclosed porch and each of the four of us had different meals. All of them were delicious, and our waitress, Brook, was top notch. Nice ambiance and an overall excellent experience. The portions are very large, so consider sharing.
