Superb desserts!

Aside from there freshly picked lettuce, coffee barako, cafeños desserts are tempting and really makes me drool! It is a good stop of your going to visit Laiya and before leaving San Juan to Manila!

lets be honest Filipino food does not rate highly amongst global cuisine, but Cafeno is a calm oasis amid the madding crowds calmly and expertly serving traditional Filipino food enhanced by quality ingredients well crafted to provide excellent food for locals and discerning expats alike.San Juan is fast becoming a culinary delight and Cafeno is one of its highlights.

On the way home from Palm Beach Resort, we had our brewed coffee here! It tasted like one of those popular coffee shops in the Metro. The aroma and the kick is overwhelming plus the ambiance of the cafe was classic!

I've been seeing this place whenever I go to quezon and finally gave in to the urge to stop yesterday. It turned out not a bad idea! Good was rather what you'd usually expect in similar places but it's the use of old time makinas as tables. Service was also good and you won't feel embarrassed to ask staff to... More

Food looks ordinary in the photos, but actually tastes really great. Their Batangas Tapa didn't disappoint. If you love coffee, you will love the shot of Barako coffee that comes with the dish. Their calamansi juice is freshly made and not too sweet. They also have a decent selection of pastries from carrot cake to cupcakes and cookies. Great ambience... More

During our post convention celebration at a beach near San Juan, we asked around for a good place to eat. The people recommended Cafeno. Great pastries and the giant halo-halo were superb. The waitresses were too snotty though.

Great service, even the owners are always there to serve. Great food. Love their coffee of course. Try their barako ice cream. Decor is the best I've seen so far this side of the country.

For those travelling to the beaches of Laiya, here's a restaurant that should not be missed! Found in a bahay na bato, the ancestral home of the owners, Cafeño's interiors reflect the menu- a respect for the past that beautifully brings it to the present. Their three-way takes on adobo are recommended, along with the fish with Cafeño sauce. They... More
