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.

Bridal Shower Event

Anna was so kind and wonderful. We had an excellent experience and everything went perfectly. I could not recommend this venue more. We were able to communicate clearly and efficiently and the staff was so so kind and helpful.

Best decision ever

We had a small wedding dinner with 46 guests and a small budget, Ana worked with us to craft a set up that included all the elements we needed and decorated the place beautifully.

The food was incredible, the service was outstanding, we even had an extra last minute guest the day of and they were able to accommodate them seamlessly. Every single person on the staff is a 10/10.

There’s no parking at the restaurant, but there are some parking garages nearby.

We looked at 49 different places around NYC before deciding for this one, and couldn’t be happier with our decision.

AMAZING customer service

I was looking for a place to celebrate a small baby sprinkle for my second pregnancy. This place did not disappoint. Anna was so accommodating and thorough. She explained everything and let me chose from inhouse decor and I couldn't believe the amount of options. It was so nice to show up and not have to worry about anything. We also were given complimentary spanakopita which was lovely. Great customer service, I will definitely be using them again.
