Dinner was nothing superb but okay. Service was good, and I really loved the champagne mojito! Left satisfied, but I think the brunch would probably have been more of a thing to see and taste!

Loved the ambiance at Victor’s. We had the Rancheros Cubano and the Dia y Noche for breakfast. Very tasty. Portions are perfect. Highly recommend. It was my first time to Victors - I was visiting Minneapolis - but I plan to return.

The service was prompt and friendly. We strongly recommend the patio dining for the street cafe vibe. The banana pancakes are huge and fruity. Crabcakes were a delight. Our water glasses were always full. We suggest the fresh mango mimosa.

We went midweek for an early lunch - still busy! But it was an easy wait. Everyone enjoyed their dishes - Sandwich Cubano, Pan con Lechon, and Lechon Asado. Having shared them all, we all agreed the Pan con Lechon was our favorite.
