We had our wedding catered by Victory Cafe last weekend and couldn't have asked for better service. They went above and beyond to get us exactly what we wanted, even down to last minute changes and chair cover orders. They worked hard to make their stuff match our decorations and were just overall fantastic. I highly recommend them if you're... More

Thoroughly average to below-average diner in Galena. I got the hash browns with eggs, sunny side up. The hash browns were good and the eggs were cooked right but came out cold. The decor is adorable and this place is very family-friendly. Also on the plus side, they serve breakfast all day. Still, I wouldn't want to come back while... More

Our daughter wanted breakfast for lunch so called to make sure that they served breakfast all day. They do!!! She ordered two sunny side up eggs, hash browns and toast. The others of us order a bagel with cream cheese, a cinnamon bun and some coffee. There was a large party ahead of us and service was slow. Unfortunately her... More

We chose this place as it was convenient. They are located on the main street of Galena in the middle of the shopping area. We had a Cheeseburger and a Rachel which were better than fast food. The waitress was prompt and the food came fairly quickly for being homemade. Our biggest gripe was the flies. There were hundred of... More

Visited Galena for the second time in 2 months and made sure I visited the Victory Café for breakfast. Once again they were great at the service and the quality of the food. If you go to Galena stop at The Victory Café for breakfast.

I went to Galena for a "girl's weekend" with five friends. We were shopping on Saturday and stopped in to have lunch. We had to wait about 20 minutes because they were so busy but it was well worth the wait. The staff was very accommodating and the food was great. Before we left Victory Café the six of us... More

Good food too. I had the veggie omlet which had grilled veggies in it and yummy melted cheese. My husband had beef vegetable soup with chunks of beef and veggies, the turkey Ruben and a big cinnamon roll. The bite I had was wonderful, like mom used to make.

We ate here on a shopping trip for a relatives birthday. All 4 of us loved our meals! Great breakfast plate, stuffed chicken breast, homemade soup and egg salad sandwich and burger. Friendly and efficient waitress. Would definitely eat here again!!

Came from an over-nite stay in Dubuque and wanted to show a friend the great city of Galena. It was about 1030 and we weren't sure where to have breakfast or even who may still be serving. So I asked a lady who had a "farmer's market" stand on the Welcome Center square, and she said to go just up... More
