Victor's 1959 Cafe: A culinary journey through Cuba

Kate N.G. Sommers

I love breakfast. More so, I love it when someone else makes me breakfast on a Sunday morning while I sit back and reminisce about the evening prior. Often my grumbling stomach wins early on, and we end up frequenting the breakfast establishments in our own neighborhood. On occasion, however, I'll actually make plans to enjoy breakfast with friends and venture into other Minneapolis neighborhoods. This Sunday we did just that, and took a quick jaunt down to South Minneapolis to enjoy an authentic Cubano breakfast at Victor's.

Without reservations, we arrived around 10 a.m. Being the small yet efficient restaurant it is, we, along with a dozen other patrons, patiently waited until our table was ready. Apparently the restaurant underwent a slight "remodel" opening up counter seating at the entrance, and expanding a section in the small dining room. My guess is that this added about 10 additional seats, not to mention a new canvas for the rebellious to leave their graffiti in fresh ink.
