We waited almost 30 minutes to be seated for breakfast. Fully understanding that there are limited restaurants serving breakfast in downtown Galena. Service was good, food was average. Most likely wouldn't wait for the experience again.

This place was packed with locals, which should tell you something. The food was good. Service fine, but they were busy so it took longer than expected. Nothing at all wrong with the food. It's a good midwest, small town diner sort of place.

Victory Cafe never disappoints. Service is always great. Fun and friendly staff. The giant buttermilk pancakes are the best.

Best breakfast in a small town! Super service. Yummy eggs, ham steak & crispy hash browns! Didn't have room for their huge cinnamon rolls.

I didn’t think the food was the best, it was ok. The only breakfast place we could find at the time. I do have to say, the servers were polite, attentive & I would give the service 5 stars.

Our family of 6 enjoyed a fine breakfast with quite a variety of selections. I was pleased to have Eggs Benedict with gf bread and hollandaise sauce. The wait staff were knowledgeable of my needs. I would return in a minute.
