True cafe style restaurant!

Good old fashioned breakfast food! Great service and the price for the food you get was great. Great place to eat on our way out of town.

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

Went in here because we were passing by and it was lunch time. When ordering we were disappointed that they were out of the daily special (tuna salad) even though it was still posted on their outdoor sign and iced tea. The waiter said it was an hour till closing and acted like this this was typical. There was a... More

We strolled in there looking for breakfast on Sunday morning. It was everything we were hoping for. Great coffee, breakfast, and great service.

The BLT basket I had was delicious and the people there were super friendly, the service was great. My daughter had the grilled chicken sandwich and she said it was one of the best chicken sandwiches she has had in a long time.

We only stayed in Galena 2 days and ate at this restaurant twice. The first day we had breakfast there. They open at 6am! The breakfast was basic but a good value for the money. The second day we had lunch. A lot of the restaurants don't open until 11am. This is a good choice because they are open 6am... More

as we were strolling, a fellow recommended we go to Victory Cafe for breakfast. You know right away it's a locals place and staff and diners addressed each other by name. I had bacon waffle which was good but would have been better if served hot vs warm and with warm vs room temp syrup. My husband's eggs were fine... More

We got our food so fast I almost couldn't believe it. But when we were done, there was no sign of anyone to give us our bill, so we had to wait around for that. Nice regular portion for eggs and toast dishes. The have a 50+ menu, so that's a nice thing. Overall fine breakfast. Very social atmosphere.

First time diner while strolling through Galena. We were seated right away in this historic building which was bright and cheery. Our waiter was friendly and knowledgeable. He was attentive without being over bearing. I had the chicken wrap and fries, and both were very good - I highly recommend this menu item! My date had a small garden salad... More
