Sabrina’s in Philadelphia

1802 Callowhill Street

I consider myself a Sabrina’s regular and so I knew it was of the utmost importance to get here early cuz 1) the food takes mad long to come out and 2) the place gets super crowded. Sabrina’s opened at 8 AM and we got there at 8:30 (yes, I admit I cut off a family with a baby stroller walking towards Sabrina’s by doing my Boston walk). . By 9 AM, the place was packed and people were standing around the tables waiting for one to open up.


Joe had the $10.99 rancheros: 2 blue corn tortillas topped w our smoky chorizo topped w our smoky chorizo. I’ve never had guacamole and fried eggs which sounds like a gross combination but it was delicious! Another really good combination was the chili and hash browns which led to the perfect amount of saltiness and flavor.


I knew ahead of time how massive the Stuffed challah French toast  w farmers cream cheese and bananas and vanilla bean syrup would be, so I ordered for $5.50 for half portion but an extra $1 for 2 strawberries sliced seems like a scam. The strawberries were instrumental in keeping the sweet factor in check. The vanilla bean syrup was wonderful but I was very conscious of it’s thick viscosity and potential to ruin the front of my shirt.

It was impossible trying to get a waitresss attention first for our check and then for a working pen cuz the one she brought w our check didn’t work. I understand that this place was packed and so service won’t be that attentive but come on!

    I love French toast made from challah bread, it is the best in the world. I never tried Sabrina’s but this makes me want to go. I had to laugh about you doing the “Boston walk” to get ahead in the line 🙂
