Victory Garden Café was originally founded in 1968 by the Sakalis Family as a Greek pastry shop known as Victory Sweet Shop. Each pastry item on their original menu was hand-crafted from traditional Greek and Mediterranean recipes. With family ties to top chefs and bakers, this family-owned café quickly became a popular spot in the heart of Astoria. In 2012, the Sakalis Family expanded and opened the Victory Garden Café as it is today. By transforming the space and recreating their menu, they created an entirely new venue while maintaining the classic charm of the original Victory Garden Café.

Tea Party Bridal Shower
For my daughter's Bridal Shower we were looking for a venue to hold a Tea Party themed event. We looked at many places throughout Brooklyn, Queens and Long Island to find the right space. This went on for quite some time and my wife and I were getting quite frustrated. A friend suggested we take a look at Victory Garden Cafe in Astoria Queens.Sent on 11/26/2019
We made an appointment to see Anna Sakalis the Event Manager and after a few brief minutes speaking with her, we knew we found the right place! Everything was perfect! She went through the menu options and explained how the space would be decorated and we were sold. She really put us at ease from the moment we walked in.
Well, the Bridal Shower could not have gone better. We met with Anna a few days before the party to finalize everything. We brought two car loads of decorations and party favors which she seamlessly and effortlessly merged with her decorations. Day of the party we walked in and the room looked beatiful. Anna and her team really did an amazing job. All of the food was terrific and all of the deserts which are baked on site were amazing. I would also like to give a special shout out to all of the staff at Victory Garden Cafe. Their attention to detail did not go unnoticed. From serving all the guests to making sure each plate was perfect and also helping carry the gifts out to the cars. They could not do enough to help out.
If you are looking for a venue for a special occasion, do yourself favor and go to Victory Garden Cafe! 5 Stars only because I cannot give more!
Thanks to Anna and her staff!

A Perfect Bridal Shower
Anna is the "Queen of Calm." The night before the shower she was un-phased when the headcount suddenly increased and the number of tables and the seating chart had to be revised.
We were told to bring favors and anything we wanted displayed in advance of the event so that we wouldn't be stressed at the last minute. When we arrived the room looked beautiful. The food looked so appealing and was delicious.
Our guests couldn't stop raving and asked how we'd found this gem.
Five Stars all around!Sent on 05/21/2019
