Victor's 1959 Cafe
Great food! We loved the flavorfulGreat food! We loved the flavorful entree, mojito sorbet, crab cake, empanada, etc. Casual atmosphere and friendly staff a plus. It gets busy and I felt a bit crowded, mainly because the wait staff seem a bit hurried? We will come back soon!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMAuthentic Cuban FoodFantastic, truly authentic Cuban food, tucked away in a nice Minneapolis neighborhood. Highly recommended!5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMVictor's 1959 CafeI discovered this little gem years ago and have eaten there many times. This was long before Guy Fieri of "Diners, Drive-Ins & Dives" and "he Food Network" did their thing. Victor's is a wonderful, bright, colorful and cozy place where the staff are knowledgable and super friendly and the food is authentic cuban. I actually feel like I'm in a small cafe in Havana when I eat there. When the weather is nice, it is also a great destination for outside dining as well. All the food is fresh and homemade and presented beautifully. I can honestly say that I have had most of the menu choices and have never been disappointed. Also, be sure and save room for cuban coffee and a fabulous dessert.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Cuban oasisInteresting how everyone can scribble on walls, ceilings, you name it.

We had the Cubano Mix appetizer which was incredible. The beef empanadas were so flavorful and the cheese croquettas were sinfully delicious. There were 4 of us and we each got something different to share. The ropa viejas was amazing with fried plantains that were sweet and yummy. The pork loin was fabulous. I would have loved a double helping of meat!! The chicken stew was good and the shrimp creole had a great kick. We thought we were completely stuffed until our waitress brought the dessert menu. We all split the mango cheesecake-so smooth and delicious and the xiango chango which is cheesecake fried in small pieces and smothered in cinnamon sugar. To die for!! Wait staff was great!4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a great time especiallyWe had a great time especially since we didn't have to wait for a table.

We live in Chicago and visit our family in River Falls Wisconsin once a month. We go to Victor's often enough that we are always recognized when we eat there even though we live 6 hours away!
