Sabrina’s Cafe will not reopen its South Philly location at 910 Christian Street but plans to relocate to another part of town in the near future.
After two decades of serving the community as a popular breakfast, lunch and brunch restaurant in the Italian Market neighborhood, the family owned establishment has marked the end of an era at its original location.
Sabrina’s has four other locations on Callowhill Street; N. 34th Street in University City, Wynnewood, and Collingswood, New Jersey.
“As we continue to serve Philadelphia and South Jersey at our four other locations, Christian Street will forever have a very special place in our family’s hearts,” said Co-Owner Robert De Abreu. “However, we’re not saying goodbye to South Philadelphia, we’re saying see you soon in a larger space close by.”
De Abreu said there are plans to open an expanded restaurant nearby. He and his wife Raquel, opened Sabrina’s Café and named it after their 1-year-old daughter in April of 2001 in the space previously occupied by the famed Litto bakery.
As a final farewell to the South Philly landmark, residents are encouraged to stop by 910 Christian Street for a complimentary serving of their delicious staple – Stuffed Challah French Toast, on Friday, April 30 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Robert and Raquel De Abreu will be present to welcome guests, assist with serving the takeaway meal, and speak with patrons of the restaurant regarding their fond memories of the establishment. The De Abreus encourage guests to share special personal photos and memories taken at the Italian Market location via Instagram at @sabrinascafe for a chance to win a gift card to use at open locations.
