Cafe Juanita is an all time favorite for romantic dates within the metro.

Kapitolyo Food Street Series:

Its biggest asset is the sort of mish mash of things mixed with different kind of lights to create an eclectic romantic ambiance.

It appears small from the outside because of the unassuming entrance but you’ll be surprised with the different world that awaits you.

You have a lot of nook to choose from as you go deeper into Cafe Juanita.

For special occasions like engagement, you can reserve this small and less complicated second floor.

I’m glad that the place is now well lighted because it looks creepy otherwise. It felt like the walls have eyes.

Cafe Juanita Menu (Even the prices are a bit eclectic)
Soup, Salad, Appetizers | Asian Favorites | Filipino Flavors | Pasta, Steak, and Mediterranean Entries | Dessert | Drinks

Juanita’s Caesar Salad (P 242). There are as many variations of this classic salad as there are chefs.
The caesar salad is a classic with a creamy dressing ( you can taste the egg yolk used). It is simple, tasty and fresh.

Kare-Kare ni Juanita (P483). Always served with pride as one of our specialties: Ox-tail and tripes stewed in peanuts and toasted rice with tropical vegetables.

This is one of the best Kare Kare I tasted but I should have bought the Bagoong Club Special from Bagoong Club to go with this Kare Kare.

The pianist plays old love songs to add a romantic feel to the setting.

Cafe Juanita-14
Dinuguan with chicharon (P230?). This is a new addition to the menu which tries to recreate Kanin Club’s Crispy Dinuguan.

Sticky Toffee Pudding (P89). Don’t leave without trying their signature dessert.

No need to reserve on ordinary days except during their popular Sunday Lunch Buffet!
