This is a great centrally located Main Street cafe located in beautiful downtown Galena. The staff is quite friendly and the food is good but not great. We tried the house special corned beef hash and it was probably the worst thing we tried on the menu. Other menu offerings are better. Kinda funny that a dinner located next to... More

The soups were wonderful and home made. Del offered helpful suggestions on the menu choices. We will most surely return soon as we found the quality, quantity and taste of our meals were excellent.

Very friendly service. Food was average but we had breakfast at lunch time so it's hard to screw up eggs and toast. Bloody Mary was good but again average but the slice of bacon did get it a better score than the one across the road... Overall 3.5 score but this system doesn't offer the half points.

The menu at the Victory Café offered many choices. The larger than your plate pancakes are quite the conversation piece. Only order one. It will fill you up. The wait staff was very friendly and quick to service. Thank you to Bailey who was our waitress.

Great selection of breakfast items to start our day. Loved the senior prices for 55+ and the friendly service of Michelle who kept our coffee cups full and smile on our faces. Got great tips from other customers who helped us find the Linmar gardens. All in all, the best way to start a day in beautiful Galena!

Food is good here, had breakfast burritos and pancakes (which are huge). Our waitress Shelly was really nice and always very quick to bring what was needed. On the other hand the cashier was EXTREMELY rude while checking out, making faces and saying things like we needed to hurry up and pay. We ended on a bad note but try... More

We were in town during lunch time and stopped in looking for good hometown food at a reasonable price. We were not disappointed. We were seated right away and Bailey was our server. She provided answers to our initial questions and was prompt with her service. My husband had the mushroom & swiss burger and was even asked how he... More

We had stopped at the Victory Café a couple of years ago for breakfast. My husband and I both enjoy a good breakfast to start the day. We visited Galena once again this week and made sure that we once again enjoyed this wonderful experience before leaving. We have also enjoyed their lunch specials during our stays. The staff is...
