I was really happy when we walked in and the menu had just the basics, all of my favorites. The Lumpia and Pancit are excellent!! I will be back when I'm in town every time! Great service, very friendly.

Not much has changed over the years at Diaz Cafe...same dishes...same family owners...same location and Same good Filipino comfort food. The sweet and sour chicken is completely different from any where else in Ketchikan. Love the lumpia and pork pancit. Worth the visit just for the nostalgia alone but the food was really good too.

Cash only. Just passed Creek Street. We walked around a little bit looking at menus in windows before having lunch and decided the food sounded good and the price was great for the area. We were not disappointed. We asked the owner who was serving us for some recommendations. We had the Shanghai Beef appetizer (amazing), the noodle soup which... More

Excellent every time! I love the fact that this restaurant purchases its food locally! Fresh vegetables and protein make all the difference in the quality of your meal. The trickle down of shopping local is good for our community too. Diaz Cafe purchases from local grocery store. Locals go to Diaz to eat. That is a good cycle.

We had supper there, among the locals. No cruisers. It was wonderful. We each ordered the Mongolian beef, which was the special that day. Perfectly cooked, perfectly seasoned, properly portioned. The sticky rice was just right. The vegetables were ideally tender, in a delicate, but well formed sauce. The prices are actually quite good for Ketchikan. If there are downsides,... More
