Our History

About Cafe 86

Established in 2014 - Cafe 86 is more than just a café; we are a celebration of flavors, a haven for community, and a canvas for culinary creativity. We bring you a unique culinary experience that pays homage to the vibrant culture of the Philippines while embracing the global influences that make our cuisine so special.

Our Story

Born out of a passion for Filipino flavors and a desire to share them with the world, Cafe 86 was founded by Ginger and James who saw an opportunity to introduce the rich and diverse flavors of the Philippines to a wider audience. Our journey began with a simple mission: to bring the unique essence of Ube to everyone we serve.

The UBE Experience

At Cafe 86, our menu is a fusion of traditional Filipino recipes and innovative culinary techniques. From our signature Ube desserts that range from Ube Leche Flan Cupcakes, to our one of a kind Halo Halo drinks that pay tribute to classic Filipino comfort foods. Every item is thoughtfully crafted to deliver a burst of flavor that you have never tasted before and pays homage to the Filipino culinary heritage while infusing a modern twist that reflects the richness of the present.

Community and Culture

We believe that food has the power to bring people together, to bridge gaps, and to create lasting memories. With everything we serve, we honor the diverse cultural influences that have shaped Filipino cuisine over generations. Our café is not just a place to enjoy a drink or a treat; it's a space where stories are shared, friendships are formed, and a sense of belonging is cultivated.

Beyond the Cafe

Cafe 86 is not confined within our café's walls. We are committed to giving back to the community that has embraced us with open arms. From partnering with local artists to hosting cultural events that showcase the beauty of cars, art, music, and dance, we strive to be a positive force in the neighborhoods we serve.
