We went here with another couple for dinner and glad we did because we were able to try other dishes. All the food was delicious. The Ropa Vieja was amazing, the Cuban sandwich was as good as anything I have ever had in Florida. You simply must try this place. They take reservations and I would recommend it because it is a very small place.

eight of us for dinner. Small restaurant but you can make a reservation otherwise a long wait. Wait staff friendly and helpful.The food is very good, I would recommend it over many of the newer restaurants in the area that get a lot of publicity and are far more expensive.

I'm a Cuban National, and there are no Cuban restaurants where I live, so when I heard about this place, I couldn't wait to go there. There was a long line of people waiting, so we figured it had to be good. Oh yeah, it was. My husband, who doesn't care for Cuban food ordered a Basque Scrambler, which is scrambled eggs, done right. I had to get the "official" Cuban food, black beans and rice. Their menu is very varied, so there's something for everybody. Eating al fresco, with all the flowers around, gave you a Caribbean feeling.

A friend recommended this place for breakfast saying it was best breakfast in town, and I left thinking it was one of the better breakfasts I had ever had! The coffee is smooth and poppy, and the plantain omelets are to die for! Also, the servers were super kind and pleasant. Will be going back whenever I'm in Minneapolis!

Victor's 1959 Cafe is a Cuban themed restaurant in a sweet area of Minneapolis. The food was good but a bit on the pricey side.
