Can Openers: Hip City Veg & Sabrina's Cafe
When you have a food allergy, it's important to have safe spots you can go to when you need to eat out. Over the past three years, I have had great success eating at Sabrina's Cafe and Hip City Veg, both of which have several locations around Philly.
It's one thing to actually have a meal that is safe. It's another to feel welcomed when you arrive. From service to food preparation, both deliver every time.
I've dined at many restaurants in Philly. With the exception of a select few, most restaurants truly have welcomed me and prepared great meals. But when I need to have a meal where I don't want to invest too much emotional energy worrying about my food allergy, Sabrina's Cafe and Hip City Veg are my true Can Openers!
