The best Filipino tacos! Her crispy wonton shells are incredible. Vegetarian options are available as well. Highly recommend the entire menu here.

Diana's cafe has the best cold brew coffee and homemade baked goods for miles. It's nice to stop by to enjoy her Filipino taco menu in the shaded outdoor dining area with a view of the Empire State Building. Everything on the menu is delicious,...generously portioned and great value. It is worth noting that Diana's support of the community throughout COVID is commendable.More

We went to the cafe to celebrate my birthday. A few friends that have been in lock down together enjoyed a fantastic, affordable, delicious, safe and gorgeous meal on the “patio”. Diana and her staff went above and beyond to make my birthday extra special...in this odd time. Oh and the tacos are amazing too! The cafe has fantastic views of the city too!More

Diana's meal, presentation, and conversation made for an exceptional experience to help celebrate my partner's birthday. Diana herself deserves this praise and more for her incredible work supporting food-insecure residents in Astoria and Long Island City during the COVID pandemic.

I've had the pleasure of working and collaborating on many events this past year with Diana and she is always such a pleasure to work with, professional, on time, great team, great food and super personable! She's always more than attentive and has such a...joyful personality to be around. I highly recommend Little Chef to anyone who wants their party/event done right with no fuss on your end. You couldn't ask for better customer service or convenience and I just have to say one more time...the delicious FOOD! Thank you Diana and your wonderful team! I look forward to our next event! 🌺More
