History

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.

    Great Bridal Shower!

    We used this venue for my cousin's Bridal Shower. Communication with Anna was excellent and she was really flexible with our needs and our budget. Everything was perfect and the service on that date was excellent. I would definitely recommend this beautiful garden. To add an extra touch we ordered a few things from Amazon to help decorate.

    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.
    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!

    Lovely Bridal Shower at the Victory Garden Cafe

    Everything was lovely working with Anna from start to finish at Victory Garden Cafe. She made my bridal shower experience smooth and we enjoyed every little detail of planning and having the shower. Our guests kept raving how good the place is and the scrumptious, generous food serving! It’s seldom you find a place that does everything including decorations. Top it with an amazing coordination from Anna and really nice waiters. We will be back to this venue for other event for sure! We loved every moment of the shower and planning too. The garden terrace was spacious, cool, and they even had the windows open to have the air circulation and also air purifiers in place for guests comfortability. Anna, thank you for making my shower so beautiful! We are so so thankful!
