Citysearch Editorial Review – There are few places to get proper Filipino food in Manhattan, and after a visit to this East Village spot one wonders why. The lumpia is excellent, though lesser known but equally appealing dishes like chicharon bulaklak pair well with a $5 San Miguel or Red Horse. Like most places in the East Village, Cafe 81 is tiny, though tables aren't cramped together and the outside seating is nice.
Wonderful! – My Best Friend & I were looking for a spot to have a few drinks. We walked by Cafe 81 and saw they had Mojito's, Margaritas & Sangria for $5 so we went in. The waitress, bartender and overall staff were super nice and helpful. The drinks were amazing! It our new spot!!!
Great service, food, and drinks!!! Outdoor space! – I threw a party there for a friends engagement last night, and feel so lucky to have found this place. The owner and staff were so helpful and thoughtful, they truly helped us make it an unforgettable night. We had appetizers and drinks, and everyone commented on how delicious the food was, not to mention the cake, which definitely was one of the best I have had!!! I highly receommend the food, which is bar food, but truly delicious. The owner and all of the staff were very flexible with all of our requests and let us do whatever decorating we wanted. A huge plus was their back garden which was spacious and comfortable. We had 50 people there, and it never seemed crowded. The owner really is such a kind man and went out of his way to make everything so easy for us and stress free. Highly recommend this place, and plan to make it my neighborhood spot!
