Surprising quality that was inexpensive

Unexpected, Inexpensive, delicious senior breakfast here. Excellent, courteous, and fast service. Varied menu. Other patrons were equally as impressed.

We enjoyed a very good lunch at the Victory Cafe in Galena in August, 2015. We were visiting Galena as part of a family gathering tour and after wandering the shops and street, we stopped at the Cafe for lunch. We were able to get a table for 8 and the server Nanette was prompt in taking our orders and... More

Bruce and Nanette went above and beyond in every possible way for our wedding! Decorations on the food tables, their hospitality, their hard work - they were out at the venue morning and night prepping for our wedding - all so that we could have a perfect wedding! Did I mention the food?! My guests kept saying all night that... More

Stopped in for lunch while roaming around Galena. Would describe Victory Cafe as a Diner with post WWII motif. Breakfast and sandwiche type of place. We shared a tuna fish sandwich and cup of ham and bean soup. ( Ordered a bowl, :-( ) Fast service, diner type food. No complaints. Summary-- Good place for cheap, quick , meal in... More

Took friends there for breakfast. I need Gluten Free they let me know right away nothing they had was Gluten free, I appreciated that it saved me problems later. The rest of our party liked there breakfast and the Bloody Mary's that they had with breakfast. Many people kept coming was a very busy place.

We saw a lunch special, Grilled Chicken Salad for a modest $6.99 and decided to try. The place was not quite full when we entered but at capacity when we left. The salad was not comprised of the often used iceberg lettuce but full of a variety of more interesting greens. The chicken was nicely grilled and perfectly done. Full... More

Great food is not worth a rude server. He had a shirt with "Please be generous. I work with a lot of women." We should have walked out then. When my wife asked him if any bread came with the soup he looked at her with disdain and said "crackers". He didn't suggest anything else and generally acted like he... More
