Cuevas, Sr., their father, is the founder of the bakery which was established way back in 1972.

Papito's Food House: Opening one's home to serve good comfort food.
Being a home to the Cuevas' for so many years, one will feel the warm connection that the place brings to its guests. While waiting for the orders to arrive, reading the story behind Papito's will give you a better understanding and appreciation of the family's history:
"Ang Papito ay salitang Espanyol na ang ibig sabihin sa Tagalog ay 'Lolo'. Ito ang tawag ng mga apo sa aming ama na si G. Demetrio M. Cuevas Sr. na mas kilala sa tawag na 'Ka Metring'. Si Ka Metring o Papito para sa kanyang mga apo ay isinilang sa Cuenca, Batangas noong ika-10 ng Nobyembre 1941. Sa hirap ng buhay ay hindi siya pinalad na makapagtapos ng pag-aaral kaya't sa murang  edad ay napilitan siyang makipagsapalaran sa Maynila at namasukan bilang isang panadero at taga-rasyon ng pan de sal. Dito niya nakilala si Bb. Mila L. Vargas. Sila ay nagpakasal noong Mayo 24, 1965. Si Ginang Mila V. Cuevas na aming ina ay tinawag namang 'Momita' ng kanyang mga apo. Sila ay biniyayaan ng walong mga anak na ngayon ay sama-samang namamahala sa hanapbuhay na sinimulan nina Papito at Momita. Si Ka Metring o Papito ay nangarap na magkaroon ng sariling negosyo kaya't kahit nanghihiran lang ng mga gamit sa kanyang kapatid ay nagawa nilang makapagsimula ng isang panaderya o bakery na sa kalaunan ay pinangalanan niyang Cuevas Bakery." 
Papito is the Spanish word for grandfather (Lolo in Filipino).
"Siya (Demetrio Cuevas Sr.) ang nagtatag ng Cuevas Bakery noong 1972 sa Karuhatan, Valenzuela, Bulacan na ngayon ay isa nang maunlad na lungsod. Ipinagpatuloy namin ito bilang Cuevas Bakeshop dahil ito ang hanapbuhay na ipinamana ng aming butihing mga magulang. Hindi man sila nakapagtapos ng pag-aaral ay naituro naman nila sa amin kung paano magsumikap, mabuhay ng marangal, may pagkilala sa Diyos, at may pagmamalasakit sa kapwa. Bilang pagkilala sa aming mga magulang ay itinatag namin ang negosyong ito, ang Papito's Food House, at sinimulan sa ipinamana nilang tahanan dito sa #3 Don Pablo Subdivision, Rincon Road, Malinta, Valenzuela City bilang pagpupugay sa kabutihan at pagmamahal nila sa aming magkakapatid."  
Papito's Food House is a place were you can bring your family and friends to catch up on life while sipping some lomi soup or enjoying a bowl of mami.
Life is a one time offer. Use it well. A piece of advice grandfathers will share to their grandchildren.
Papito's menu includes lugaw and goto with the typical side dishes like tokwa't baboy and lumpiang prito, short orders of pancit, silog meals, sizzling dishes, and a variety of cold and hot drinks. Asking Miss Ona, bestsellers which one should try are their lomi (Php75.00) and beef pares (Php70.00). The chicken mami (Php30.00) and beef mami (Php35.00) are also recommended.


Beef pares at Papito's Food House (Php70.00 per order). The beef melts in your mouth and the sauce is very savory. 
One Valenzuela was really happy with this big bowl of lomi (Php70.00). It was full of chicharon, pieces of liver, and veggies. Demetrio Cuevas Sr., 'Papito', hails from Batangas and this bowl of lomi is reminiscent of the said province. 
The mango graham milkshake is served on a tall glass (Php35.00). A good drink to beat the summer heat.
Admittedly, eating at Papito's Food House reminded One Valenzuela of her lola and the dishes she lovingly prepared in the kitchen. The food and the place evoke the feeling of being with one's grandparents, of being with family, of being at home.
