Victory café was the best place to eat breakfast, loaded your plate up and the staff was very friendly and fun, I decided to try a Bloody Mary to go with my B&G and hashbrowns, best Bloody Mary ever, it had a salad on it, celery, pepperoni, beefstick, olive, a pickle a gardenia pepper, amazing . Loved the place!

I didn't expect a restaurant in the main strip to be this good. They had corned beef hash which I love. My eggs were great and my husbands breakfast was good too. You can add on a slice of French toast, which I like so I don't have a whole order of it. It was very good! I liked the... More

The food was great first thing in the morning. They have great coffee. They were able to seat three couple comfortably. The blueberry pancakes were to die for. Great!

Right before 2pm, at which point they close until dinner, so be warned about that. Good service and good food, but place seemed a bit dirty, esp the bathrooms. Flies were horrible around our table. Not our best choice for the week.

My wife and I go to Galena several times each year. We recently stopped for a light snack at the Victory Cafe. This was our first time in that business. The server was great. She told us about the cafe and business we had never visited (Blaum Bros Distillery). She was so enthusiastic and upbeat about her place of employment... More

Service was prompt and good, and our sandwiches were very good, and you were served a small side of cole slaw and dill pickles. We'd eat here again.

We stopped here after arriving in Galena and before our wandering the streets. I had the pancake which was bigger than my plate! My husband had the country omelet tanned both were good. It was a nice start to our day. Love breakfast for lunch!

We had a great breakfast here. The waitress was so accommodating. She went out of her way to make certain we had everything we asked for. The food was delicious and served quickly. As we were leaving, the waitress asked if we wanted a coffee to go---it was no extra charge. When we visit Galena again, we will stopping at... More

Good food. Great Service. Very reasonably priced. The usual mom and pop cafe food done well. We did see Deep Fried meat loaf, but neither my wife or I was up for trying it. All in all, a nice little diner.
