great breakfast!

met the owners the evening prior and found them so warm and welcoming we had to check out their restaurant, as they said they served late breakfasts for those of us who can't get up early! Food was served quickly, and was hot and tasty! And plenty of it! Nice menu selection too.

We went to breakfast at Victory Café, the food was excellent and very large portions. The staff was friendly and very helpful, even though the Café was full you got full attention from the staff and felt like you were the only ones there. We would tell everyone who is looking for an awesome place to eat where you will... More

We frequent Galena often and I was very excited when Victory started selling their Bacon Infused Blaum Bloody Mary's. It comes out with a whole meal right on top. Bacon, celery, pickles, mushrooms, olives, cheese, etc. Absolutely to die for. The breakfast was just as good. We tell all our traveling friends to eat breakfast at the Victory Cafe! We'll... More

Used to go to the old cafe in this location called "Clark's", and so anticipated more great food when Victory took over. Not so - the coffee was watered down and the food was just ok - went several times hoping it would get better but didn't. A better choice for a cafe in town would be the Golden Hen... More

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
