We ate here twice: once for lunch and later for breakfast. The first time we ordered the tuna salad sandwich with their strawberry lemonade. The tuna was made with dill pickles (which I enjoyed but some people prefer sweet pickles) and good but the "hit" was the strawberry lemonade with real strawberries at the bottom which added a punch of flavor. We kept noticing people ordering the pancakes even though it was lunchtime so we did something we never do...ordered a pancake for dessert! It came hanging off the plate and was delicious! It was so good that we immediately made plans to return later in the week for breakfast. When we did, we again split the pancake plus shared an order of biscuits and sausage gravy. The pancake definitely took top billing. This place is all about the food. There is a feeling of old tired furnishings. At one meal, we sat staring at a stack of booster seats against the wall. On a good note, they always say to check out the restrooms before you eat someplace because that will tell you the attitude of management about cleanliness...these restrooms were spotless!

The Victory Cafe is located in the heart of the Galena shopping district. Although it offers a complete menu of salads and sandwiches, breakfast is served at all times. We ate at the Victory Cafe twice, once for breakfast and one for lunch. Both times our meals and the service were excellent. There is sort of a 50s/60s ambience to this diner, which brought back memories of a time before the advent of fast food franchises. So, if you are looking for a restaurant to take a break from shopping in Galena, the Victory Cafe should do nicely.

Very busy place - food is good, but it gets a very crowded. Tables are close together - if the food was not so good, I would recommend that you take a pass on this place. Go early, and you might not have an issue.

Each time my husband and I go to Galena, Victory Cafe is the one place we ALWAYS eat at. Our go to meal is their pancake. Yes just one pancake because they are the size of the plate and they are awesome! The entire staff is very welcoming, food is always good and the place is clean.
