Victory Cafe Catering

About us


Our Philosophy

When Victory Cafe Catering plans your event we approach it with you in mind.  Let’s face it, we like food, but we love our clients.  That’s why we work hard to create memorable menus , and even harder to ensure that our clients are able to relish every moment of their event without worrying about the details and logistics.  We contribute over 2 and a half decades of culinary expertise and our hands-on approach to the success we have enjoyed in our restaurant and catering business.

Our History

Born and raised in Galena, Bruce grew up learning the way of life of buying (and eating) locally.  So it was in his blood to own and operate a local restaurant and catering business here in Galena.   After graduating college he ran successful cook-your-own steak restaurants in Central Illinois and then California.  After opening his own restaurant in Florida, Bruce met Nanette who had been working in the restaurant business her whole life.  The two married in 2002 and soon after having children moved back to Galena where Bruce operated a fine dining restaurant with wine paired dinners and upscale catering.  When the opportunity arose to buy the Victory Cafe, Bruce and Nanette were more than ready, willing, and qualified.   With the restaurant open daily for breakfast and lunch, Bruce and Nanette decided to add catering to their offerings and seen it grow rapidly into a successful venture.
