Description: Born out of Robert & Raquel DeAbreu's desire to create a comfortable, welcoming place that served great food at great prices; Sabrina’s Café opened in 2001 serving up now infamous staples like Stuffed Challah French Toast, The Barking Chihuahua, and their Huevos Rancheros. A great brunch spot, Sabrinas Cafe also features creative dinner fare that is just as impressive.

Small(ish) local restaurant with a bohemian type atmosphere with excellent food.
The food is the draw at all of the Sabrina locations. This is an oldie and the mismatch decor shows it. But don't let that fool you. The food selection is very good with some eclectic choices. We went for breakfast this day and the omelets and French toast choices were very good and generous portions. The frittata was also a good choice.
But I can't give it five stars because this time, like all other visits, left some details that were annoying. The frittata was not as ordered so when the item was sent back the other three members in our party were nearly finished when it returned. Rye toast was substituted with white. Small details, but there always seem to be one regardless of the location.
Some of the wait staff can be aloof and a bit condescending if you don't fit their age and lifestyle profile, which is annoying since service and hospitality is a big part of the dining experience.

All that being said, we still return for the food. And maybe one of these times it will come together without that one little quirk.

I went with my son and ate with a friend who lives in the city. The place was buy at 9am and we had to wait in an adjoining space. They did give us coffee to keep us warm as it was chilly outside. We each ordered breakfast and it was delivered in speedy time. The space is a bit tight and buy with millennials milling about but some old timers like us were also coming here too. On the whole a good place to eat breakfast.
