Nestled near the Italian Market in South Philadelphia, this corner bakery-turned-restaurant serves outstanding, consistent dishes in a cozy, inviting atmosphere. And it just may be Philadelphia’s most popular restaurant.

The restaurant is divided into three small sitting rooms adorned with eclectic artwork and tiny, intimate tables. The large outdoor sitting area provides a pleasurable option in warm weather and during long waits.

Locals can’t get enough of their Sunday brunch — a phenomenon that continues to grow each passing week — and swear it’s worth the wait. Stuffed challah French toast and enormous frittatas stuffed with fresh cheese and veggies will lure you back again.

Insider Tip

The wait for weekend brunch can be brutal, so call ahead and get your name on the list before you head over.

Additional Location

With the newly opened Sabrina’s Café and Spencer’s Too in the Fairmount neighborhood (1804 Callowhill Street), Sabrina’s delectable menu is now delighting twice as many lucky diners.

The spot is perfect for breakfast, lunch and diner — especially as a delicious meal before or after visiting the nearby Franklin Institute.
