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.

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.

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.

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

Was here for a late brunch on Sunday. Bailey gave us excellent service, and the food was ready very quickly! The strawberry lemonade tasted great and it was nice to have real strawberries in the drinks!
