Our first Diners, Drive-ins and Dives in Minneapolis was Victors 1959 Cafe in 2008
we got over to Victors 1959 Cafe on a weekend morning and the place was packed, it's quite small so be prepared to squeeze in, the booths were wood so no cushions (may have changed nowadays) but the food was amazing (as you can see in the pic)!
once we visited this place, we know that we'd be huge fans of the show! we lived in the state and didn't even know about Victors and what a joy it was to go there, highly recommend it as it's one of our favorites in the state of Minnesota.
little bit more about the place, as soon as you step inside, it feels like you traveled back in time to the 1950s. the checkered floor, neon lights, colorful booths, and old-time jukebox set the scene. You half expect to see poodle-skirted waitresses on roller skates serving up milkshakes (not really) but while the environment is a blast from the past, the food is innovative and delicious.
no visit is complete without trying one of their decadent shakes, like the Cafe Con Leche made with espresso and dulce de leche. or go for the cookie jar with an entire slice of chocolate chip cookie pie and vanilla ice cream.
