Victory Garden Café comes pretty close to a little piece of Greece in Astoria. Located at 21-69 Steinway Street, Victory Garden Café was initially established as a sweet shop in 1968 by the Sakalis family, serving Greek pastries and delicacies to those who were in search of a slice of home, or to those who were open to expanding their palates. Years later, Victory expanded into a restaurant, complete with a back garden open to hosting private events such as birthdays, wedding showers, and even wedding receptions.
At Victory Garden Café, patrons can opt for …/ Greek-style turkey, accompanied by Thanksgiving classics such as stuffing and fresh Greek salad. Additional a la carte menu items include sirloin steak, calamari, and sweet potato, among other options.
The Victory Garden Cafe is a place you can truly get lost in.
Among the running stream, the green plant life, the cushiony seating and European styled outdoor chairs and tables, it is hard not to be whisked into what it may feel like (if only there was a great sparkling sea just down the road).
But that’s OK, because the food is definitely on the way.
The best part of Victory Garden Cafe however is their events.
From word of mouth, it is a perfect place to go for anything from a Bridal Party, to a sweet 16 to wedding celebrations. They cater for anyone, and the service is always on point.
So if you’re feeling a little Mediterranean, and want to bask in inspiring atmosphere, visit the Victory Garden Cafe.

With twinkling lights, classic marble and stonework and tasteful decor, you’ll feel you’ve been transported to a fairy grotto on a Greek island as the water in the rock foundation trickles behind you,” venue representatives said. This cool and quiet garden venue happens to be attached to a well-loved cafe and sweet shop. The Victory Garden Cafe is certainly a little taste of Greece, especially with available classic Greek desserts such as kataifi and ravani.
Take a trip to the back of the restaurant and you'll be greeted by a Euro-Mediterranean-styled patio with hanging vines and small fountain. The brunch menu consists of large portion plates, such as Tsoureki French toast, thick bacon slices and, my husband insists, a very decent bloody mary. There's enough space in the front for strollers and high chairs. Come early to secure a table in the garden.

In business since 1968, this family-owned bakery has been satisfying the sweet tooth of local residents with a dazzling variety of American style cakes and cookies as well as Greek pastries such as Baklava, Galaktoboureko, Karidopita (walnut cake), Amigdalou (almond vanilla cake) and Sokolatina, which is one of the best chocolate cream cakes you'll ever eat.Astoria has quite a few outdoor dining patios and gardens; more than you will find in most of the other boroughs. But the backyard at Victory Cafe has to be one of the most spell-binding al fresco dining spots of them all.
Stone walls enclosed an oasis that is filled with a flowing water fountain, sculptures, small trees, and shrubs. Colorful flowers and candles decorate the tables. Long, green vines hang from the back wall, next to soft, plush couches and overstuffed chairs.
Their brunch is deliciously affordable

What People Say About Victory Garden Café
“Absolutely the Best Greek Bakery!”
Reviewed December 21, 2011
One of us is Greek,and bakes every type of Greek sweet imaginable, so you can believe me when I say that Victory is the best.We've been customers for 18 years.The amigdalota(almond macaroons) are moist and,full of almond paste.Every Greek bakery that I've been to in Astoria or Manhattan bakes these cookies with so much sugar,it overpowers the almond taste.The pastries at Victory are delicious and aren't swimming in syrup, like those of other bakeries.Try the galatoboureko(custard squares) kataifi,(nutty pastries wrapped in shredded filo dough,or the ekmek kataifi(the nut rolls with a custard topping).Victory also sells a variety of butter cookies ,and the traditional Greek New Year's sweet bread, and Easter braided bread . There are a few tables if you care to eat your sweets right away. Anything you try is sure to please,and service is excellent and staff , personable.The added bonus is that prices are low, too!
Nice new cafe

Perhaps people are sick of cafe's but I happen to enjoy them. Victory sweet shop on Steinway off of Ditmars has opened a charming cafe with a lovely garden in the back. It is not on the street and is rather quiet - no blasting music. We had a frappe float and an Fredocino (Iced Cappucino) and they were both excellent. They serve all coffee drinks with Biscotti and the prices were lower than the places on 30th Avenue. It was a lovely relaxing experience!
