Breakfast Spot

“This cafe / restaurant has three branches in Philadelphia. I have heard rumors that their French toast is as big as a human head. One serving would have fed a family of four. When you see the Sabrina’s menu, you won't be able to decide what to have. In this restaurant, you don't step beside whatever you order. Thumbs up also deserves coffee specialties and homemade lemonade (I recommend lemonade with lavender)”
