Philadelphia, PA - The end of an era, and the start of a new venture in South Philadelphia with Sabrina's Café, the locally grown group of popular breakfast, lunch, and brunch restaurants, closing their doors at 910 Christian St, the original Sabrina's Café in the Italian Market neighborhood.
Sabrina's Café Plans To Move Into A Nearby Venue Soon
After two decades of making a name for themselves as a staple in the community, at the end of April, with plans on soon re-locating to an expanded restaurant nearby. Robert and Raquel De Abreu opened Sabrina's Café in late April 2001 in the space previously occupied by the famed Litto bakery.
"As we continue to serve Philadelphia and South Jersey at our four other locations, Christian Street will forever have an extraordinary 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."
The De Abreu family named the new restaurant after their newborn daughter Sabrina Isabella, born in February of 2000. Since then, the Italian Market location has garnered accolades.
With the closure of 910 Christian Street, which has become a beloved institution over the past 20 years within the Philadelphia community, comes plans on expanding to a larger, more equipped, and updated venue in the months ahead. Stay tuned for details on the brand-new Sabrina's Café location.
