Chips & Salsas of the House

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.

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.

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

"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!

Arroz a la Cubana

Arroz a la Cubana plus a side of yucca has been my go-to since 2002 when I lived next door. I return to the neighborhood just for Victors cooking. The creole sauce definitely makes this dish what it is. It's simple and delicious. Bistec Criollo is a close second.

Dia Y Noche

My go-to order at Victor's (with a side of chorizo). Everything you need in a breakfast - savory, sweet, salty, and filling! Reasonably priced and perfect with a cup of coffee. Love the gals at Victor's and while I miss the lazy days of having a long lunch in the sun on the patio, I respect and appreciate the measures taken during the pandemic to keep employees and customers safe!

Bistec Criollo

This dish is so flavorful I keep ordering it over and over even though I also love other dishes on the menu. I went to Miami to visit some friends and had Cuban food for the first time. I was obsessed and sought it out in MPLS. Victors came through with their authentic and delicious food! I order my Bistec Criollo with rice and an over easy egg which adds a creamy texture to the amazing meat! Definitely one to try!

Arroz a la Cubana

The first time I had this was years and years ago and thought "yeah that was ok I guess". Then I started craving it and had to have it again. Now I've been eating it every time I go. It seems so simple but the flavors are like the best breakfast hash ever when you mix everything together. I do prefer it the old way though, with tostones rather than yuca! Love ya, Victor's.

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!

Island Eggs

While I have yet to have a bad meal from Victor's, this is my favorite item from their breakfast menu. The sauce that is included makes this salmon and eggs breakfast a fun and delicious alternative for people who are fans of eggs Benedict style dishes. It is a must try!

Emmalouska about 2 months ago

Bistec Criollo

Bistec criollo is my go-to order, always. The steak is so delicious, and the yuca is out of this world! I could honestly eat this for every meal. I even tried to make a version of it while I was stuck in quarantine. It was ok, but Victor's will always have my heart. I'll get takeout next time!

Plato Vegetariano

Victor's 1959 Café has THE best breakfast/lunch around. With its many vegan/vegetarian options, I never leave disappointed. The Plato Vegetariano is one of my favorites! It's seasoned just right and is a healthy option for everyone; even carnivores! I'm a huge Victor's 1959 Café fan!

Fricasee de Pollo

Absolutely amazing! Chicken is flavorful and extra tender. I was a little skeptical of the olives but they're tremendous in this dish -- not overpowering at all and they really bring a deep, savory quality.
