Description
When Victor’s 1959 Café opened in April 1999 we were excited about bringing great Cuban food to our south Minneapolis neighbors – and we still are! What we couldn’t have imagined was that all these ... Read more

This is a good Cuban restaurant in Minneapolis. I would definitely recommend, plus prices aren't too bad.

A triple D Diner's, Drive Ins & Dives fave and one of ours, too! Authentic Cuban cooking combined with some American faves. Try the gigantic blueberry pancake, my personal favorite!

I've only been here for breakfast, but it's so good! This place is tiny and literally crammed with fun cultural artifacts, grafitti, and delicious food! Would recommend it to anyone.

this is one of the things i miss about minneapolis!!

be patient - it's worth the wait. the staff is amazing, the food is unbelievable. it's a cozy, divey, wonderful little spot. i miss the flavors, the mimosas, the guava jam, any breakfast cubano dish really.

if you haven't tried it, go.

We really miss eating here. It was just down the street from where we lived. The breakfast cuban style is great eats even for this Swede.

Eating With The Enemy....

Gayle, Meg, Ron, and I stopped here for Lunch after a nice hike around Lake Calhoun. The neighbourhood around Victor's 1959 Cafe has seen better days, but this funky property (old gasoline station?) was hopping yesterday. The outdoor tables were pretty much full, so we took a cozy booth inside, and admired the graffiti on the walls, and other aspects of this slanted, creaky, and funky interior.

I really enjoyed my Sandwich Cubano, while Gayle enjoyed her Lechon Asado (pulled pork loin). Ron had that too and Meg opted for the Picadillo. It was all delicious, with the only false note being the Croquetas, which were a bit cold on the inside and maybe under nuked in the microwave? In any event, all the food went down well with copious amounts of black beans and rice, raspberry lemonade, and Negra Modelo beer.

We also enjoyed our friendly and well-spoken server, and commented that we would love to come back here for breakfast and/or the patio. Viva la Revolucion!
