    Better than Jeepney!

    This is a block up from where Jeepney is. Crispy pata is my favorite dish. I feel more comfortable dining here than at Jeepney. This is where you get authentic Filipino food.

    almost like home

    If you grew up eating your mom's Filipino food, you won't be disappointed by this restaurant. It was like being able to order all your mom's food, except cooked by your aunt whose cooking is almost but not quite as good as your mom's. I liked this place much better than Maharlika, Pig and Khao, or Lumpia Shack. Those places are New York-ified Filipino. This place is just Filipino!

    satisfied customer

    Good food, fair prices, clean environment. Service was average... based on my limited experience, I suspect they could use an extra waiter/ waitress during dinner service. Despite this, I've never had any mistakes, the food was arrived nice and hot, and the staff have always been courteous and professional. About the only complaint I have is that some customers don't know their limits and then get drunk/ disruptive to other customers.

    it was closed for a week during the holy week, so i was frustrated a lil bit though. But it was re-openned after so i came back and noticed that there were new staff, i was like, what happened to the old ones?? anyway, everything's great though, they have good customer service and the food is still great. i'll always love cafe 81!

    Filipino food in the village

    Food is okay. The owner is nice. Not as good as the Filo restaurants in Queens but the prices are good. They usually dont have everything on their menu which has been a disappointment. First 3x i went they had no Halo-Halo. The last time i was there they had no Bulalo. And they only deliver 5 blocks away!?! C'mon step your game up!

    service please

    The food is ok nothing to rave about but prices are reasonable not like the sky high prices of the one in 21 st. But my god the service is so poor you would constantly look for your waiter. Guys hire more wait staff please.
