A word from Victory Garden Cafe
Since 1968 the Sakalis Family right from the start offered The Greek Community a taste of Greece by offering authentic Greek pastries in their bakery section representing various parts of Greece. George Sakalis and Antigoni Sakalis come from families of top chefs/bakers specializing in traditional baking and authentic Greek/Mediterranean Cuisine. It's no wonder their talents have created Astoria's hidden gem.

The Sakalis Family recently opened the Café-Restaurant, Victory Garden Café, which offers an even larger selection of Greek specialties. The newly renovated space provides an ambiance that will leave you breathless! All menu items are made on premises and include a wide range of seafood & meat dishes.

Amazing European decor with available indoor and outdoor spaces conveniently located in the heart of Astoria. Make your next reservation in our outdoor/indoor majestic area and enjoy our large selection of Greek-Mediterranean dishes. Space also available for events.

    I came here with a friend and tried the brunch menu which what delicious. We were seated at a nice table in the outdoor garden.I had the Grilled Chicken Panini and my friend had the Mediterranean Omelette. The portions were large and the food was quite good. With the $10 brunch we also ordered coffees and mimosa. Need to try this place for dinner. The staff was attentive and friendly.

    I went with my girlfriend and sat in the garden section. The decor is amazing. It felt like we were on a tropical island. We had the grilled octopus and a bottle of Greek white wine. Our dish was delicious and the waiter was very attentive. I guess this place must be pretty new cause I'm surprised I never heard of it.

    I cannot stress how horrible an experience is when your bill is wrong! & the management TRIES to prove you wrong! The prefix $35 Mother's Day menu & the EVERYDAY $10 priced brunch are WRONG! They ITEMIZED the bill. Who the f@ck itemizes for a prefix menu?! The bill was $20 more than it should have been & gratuity would have ended up higher. When I am told $35pp +tax, but then you have to sit there & add up a bill that is itemized because the total looks way off & everyone in your party agrees, ITS A LOUSY EXPERIENCE. The, waiter & the Manager just keep repeating themselves but $10 here & there w/ large parties... They figure nobody will notice! There are plenty of Greek Cafe's in Astoria. I won't ever need to consider this place again!

    ordered traditional puff pastry and homemade cheese pie. They were plain, plain, plain. Could had the same in any coffee shop. Service was a little slow, had to request water and coffee refill (there were only 3 other parties for the brunch). Good ambience if you want a quiet place with friends or date. What saved the brunch is the complimentary dessert in the end of the brunch, my date loved it. For the price $10/person/brunch the place is O.K. place to go. I would return if it was closer to home.

    I had the Health Burger, which they say is 98% fat free. I feared that it might be dry and crumbly, but was pleasantly surprised by how juicy and tasty it was. We were seated in the back of the restaurant, in the "outdoor" area, which was encased by glass doors and a sunroof. It was dimly lit, which gave it an intimate feel. Seating in the back was a little tight, but comfortable. The wait staff, who were very friendly and attentive, went out of their way to make sure that my party and I were comfortable and enjoying our meals. At the end of the night, they surprised us by serving one of their signature desserts - on the house! If I am ever in the neighborhood I would, without a doubt, dine at the Victory Garden Cafe again!
