Eggs Havana

So good. Creole sauce is always amazing on pretty much anything, but it's best on this, I'd say. Plus it comes with yucca so it's perfect.

Bistec Criollo

One of my favorites! Everything you could want in a breakfast or lunch item. Steak is flavorful, eggs are always cooked perfect and crispy yucca makes this so good! I like to add a side of black beans! Get it w the cuban bread!

Arroz a la Cubana

Delicioso! Súper good, loved especially the yuca and plantain. Coffee is super good too! Thank you! Will be back soon. Miss having breakfast in person at the cutest little spot in town.

Yuca Rellenas

Balls of cheesy Yuca goodness! I ordered the Yuca Rellenas on a whim for my young kids to have (in addition to sharing the meals off our plates) but the whole family was fighting for them! We'll add these to our order every time!

"Love" Cuban BBQ Sauce 16 oz Jar

The best Cuban spot in the twin cities!! The portions are well worth the price, because this is art!!

Yuca Frita

I really love everything at Victor's, but the Yuca is probably my favorite food anywhere of all time. Especially with the mojo sauce it's SO GOOD. I would buy a bucket of it if I could. The Eggs Havana and Día y Noche are great too, along with the pancakes and, well, everything on the menu. Tons of vegetarian options too which I am grateful for. Best spot in the Twin Cities.

Sandwich Cubano

Victor's sandwich cubano is the best I've ever had in Minnesota. It's delicious, affordable and there's enough to save for a second meal! Love this place!

Bistec Encebollado

WOW! Is all I can say. The meat was super fresh and perfectly cooked, which surprised me. Sometimes I get wary ordering steak dishes because I feel the steak becomes overcooked or dry, that was NOT the case here. The steak was very juicy and had an amazing flavor mixed with the grilled onion. I was pleasantly surprised with this dish and will definitely order again.

Dia Y Noche

Love the black beans and how their flavor meshes with the rest of the breakfast. Can't find this combo anywhere else.

Pan con Lechon

This sandwich is the sleeper pick. I think everyone instantly goes for the Cuban, which is also delicious, but the Pan con Lechón is the sandwich I'll go back to again and again.

Mango Pancake

I don't usually order pancakes at restaurants, but the mango pancake is my exception! I always order one pancake on the side and end up having to split it because it's also pretty big. Not too sweet, but perfect as a little dessert for breakfast.

Corn Pancake

My favorite breakfast place has always been victors for not only the food but the staff! I'm a huge fan of having savory and sweet breakfast so the corn pancake is essential with every order! It's delicious and gooey in parts, recommend 10/10.

Guava & Cream Cheese Empanada

Cuban Scrambler

This is easily my favorite breakfast in Minneapolis (served with a sweet café con leche of course). It's the ultimate comfort food; warm, filling, delicious, and affordable. The eggs are always cooked perfectly, and the beans and salsa are a heavenly combo. It's not too hot but very flavorful. If you're unsure what to order, you can't go wrong with the Cuban Scrambler.

Basque Scrambler

The basque scrambler has been my favorite breakfast item from Victor's for over a decade. Check them out for breakfast, lunch, or dinner!

"Love" Cuban Pork BBQ Sandwich

"Love" is the perfect name for this sandwich. It took one bite for me to fall in love with this amazing sandwich! It's the perfect blend of Victor's BBQ sauce with some out of this world pulled pork, on their Cuban bread. It's even better with the Cuban slaw, and has become my go-to take out order this summer. Guaranteed to have you love it enough to come back for more!

Dia Y Noche

I started coming here a few years ago and this was the first thing i've tried and since then i've gotten it almost everytime, it's so simple yet SO delicious. the plantains are always cooked perfectly, the beans flavored to perfection and with a side of tortillas makes this one of my favorite meals ever. I highly recommend smothering it in their homemade hot sauce as wel...it goes so good on it. Seriously i can't recommend this anymore. such a classic dish but made so perfectly! Whenever I get this i'm full for the rest of the day and feel absolutely content! 10/10!

Crab Cakes Breakfast Special

This is so darn good! The crab cakes are all crab, no bread fillers, and nice and crispy on the outside. The salad is crisp and sweet which compliments this perfectly.

Wild Rice Banana Porridge

This is the best porridge known to man! I always buy one to go and one there. I love this place and I go every time we visit family! Highly recommend this place, the line would be out the door and it can be about an hour wait even when it's cold. Worth it every time, just be sure to be ready to wait. Service has always been good and I finally got around to buying a shirt, high quality and made to last.

A wholesome meal that tastes very authentic. Perfect representation of Cuban food. Chicken was tender, seasoned, and flavorful.

Black Bean Burger

In my top two favorites of things on the menu. As a vegetarian, I'm all too familiar with the black bean burger option on the menu, this one however is special. Homemade and hearty, I usually end up having extra to take home.

Lechon Asado

Absolutely Perfect. I've never had pork this tender, juicy, and flavorful. Does not disappoint

Bistec Criollo

Bistec criollo is my favorite dish! The rice and yuca soak up all the flavors from the steak, I order mine with an over medium egg and the yolk just adds to all the goodness! I also choose the Cuban bread option and it's perfect for dipping into the runny yolk too. Definitely can't go wrong with this dish!

Arroz a la Cubana

This is my favorite breakfast in Minneapolis, hands down! The Arroz a la Cubana with some coffee and a mango pancake eaten on a sunny patio is seriously my idea of heaven. Highly recommend upgrading to the Cuban toast as well!
