Buckminster’s, The Little Bird Bakery and Cafe and Sabrina’s Cafe – Collingswood are all now open. Buckminster’s opened to a packed house last night, after an even more packed Saturday night preview party. You can check out the menu here but also worth noting, tap wine by the glass tops out at $7.50, the house gin-and-tonic is$5.50 and there’s even a sub-five dollar draft beer (Neshaminy Creek Cream Ale) on the list. It’s always nice to see a drink list with some value to it.
Today is the opening day for Jessica Nolen’s new bakery at 5th and Gaskill Streets, The Little Bird. Stop by for fresh baked croissants, muffins, pretzels and treats. Nolen is Jeremy Nolen’s (Whetstone and Brauhaus Schmitz) wife and also handles the baking for those restaurants. Get in soon to pre-order holiday pies, cakes and sweets.

Sabrina’s Cafe in Wynnewood
Sabrina’s Cafe, which has locations in Bella Vista, Fairmount, Logan Circle, and Wynnewood is preparing for a fifth location, this one in Collingswood, New Jersey. The cafe will move into the Woolworths building at 714 Haddon Avenue. The address has also been the home of Alex Capasso’s Blackbird Eating Establishment (as well as his West Side Gravy and Benny’s Burger Joint concepts), and more recently, the incredibly short-lived Local Collingswood.
According to NJ Pen, the Collingswood Sabrina’s will open by August, and will have a capacity of around 100 diners.

There are only a few foods that one can happily eat for every meal and pancakes are one of them. Maybe it’s because lasagna for breakfast doesn’t flow as well, but pancakes for dinner is never a bad idea. No matter what time it is, pancakes can always be the answer to the question of “What would make me happy right now?” And here’s a list of some of our favorite spots to get the hot and fluffy dish.

The Philadelphia Business Journal’s Peter Van Allen confirms a rumor we’ve heard from time to time for almost a year now. Popular brunch spot, Sabrina’s is going to be opening on the Main Line. Already with locations at 9th and Christian, Fairmount and on Drexel’s campus, expansion will see the next location opening in Wynnewood, in the former Sam’s Grille location.

Editor’s Note: This week, we’re going to be introducing our new army of interns to you, the Foobooz readership. And it occurred to us that what better way for you to get to know them a little then for them to tell you all about something they loved to eat? Thus, we set them each to assembling their own Foobooz Six Pack, focusing on something they craved.
Amanda Shulman is our next contributor. This is what she had to say for herself: “I’m Amanda Shulman and I’m obsessed with anything edible. As a sophomore at the University of Pennsylvania, I’m officially studying political science, but have also made it my personal mission to study the Philly food scene. I write for UPenn’s 34th Street Magazine as well as Thewalk.com, and am also the author of my own blog, hungreegirl.blogspot.com. I love to cook, eat, talk about/write about food, and couldn’t be happier to be living in a city where so many people feel the same way. If its edible, I’ll try it–especially when topped with a fried egg or some truffles.”
Sometimes the only way to kick your day off right is with a big pile of ridiculously fluffy and deliciously deadly French Toast. Let’s face it, anything with this much sugar automatically makes those rough mornings a little sweeter. Check out these spots for the ultimate guilty pleasure that is basically an excuse to eat dessert for breakfast. Not that we’re protesting.
