The 1994 PBA All-Filipino Cup Finals was the best-of-7 championship series of the 1994 PBA All-Filipino Cup, and the conclusion of the conference playoffs. The San Miguel Beermen and Coney Island Ice Cream Stars played for the 57th championship contested by the league. A trip to Hiroshima, Japan, for the Asian Games in September is at stake for the winner to represent the Country in basketball competition.

San Miguel Beermen won their 11th league crown and earn the right by winning against defending champion Coney Island Ice Cream Stars in six games, avenging their last season's All-Filipino Cup finals loss to this same team as the Beermen became the first back-to-back champions in the 1990s era.
