How I heard of this place: My friend Christina began working at Victor’s and raved of the talented baristas, the excellent coffee and the cozy space. I tried it. I tried it again. I haven’t stopped trying it.
Type of cuisine: Coffee shop fare with everything from house specialty espresso beverages to cappuccino muffins, seasonal fruit tarts, toasted sandwiches and fresh squeezed juices. 100% roasted locally, in house at Victor’s, the beans are fair trade and organic and the coffee always fresh!
Ambiance: Very rustic and cozy, warm and inviting. Outdoor seating on the deck is available, upon which to bask in the sun as you enjoy conversation and a tasty beverage. Inside, one finds the main cafe with bar, small tables, chairs and a large bench (to share). To the left of the original cafe safe, one will find a smaller take-away cashiers table and more seating options in a larger room. Dark, wooden interior hosts freshly roasted coffees, grinders and roasting equipment.
What I ordered: For my lunch visit, I had to order my usual Victor’s espresso beverage: a mandarin mocha, single ristretto with non-fat milk, dark chocolate and mandarin syrup. My dining companion ordered a tall vanilla and caramel latte. For lunch, of the three sandwich options, I selected the Roma: turkey, fontina cheese, tomato and basil, grilled and served warm. My lunch companion ordered the Baci: mozzarella cheese, basil, tomato and seasoned, marinated artichoke hearts, also grilled and served warm. I was told I cannot leave the place without having sampled the chocolate chip cappuccino muffin, so we split that as an appetizer! (Each meal came to $10.50, sandwich, chips and coffee.)
What I loved: I loved the mandarin mocha most of all, as is always the case. When at Victor’s…The sandwich was grilled in butter, toasty and full of fresh basil and tomato flavor! The cheese perfectly melted. The turkey slices warm and tender. The cappuccino muffin, I agree, must be added to the list of things to order when at Victor’s!
Why I loved it: The environment is always pleasant at Victor’s, the smell of freshly roasted coffee and the taste of everything make it place to frequent. Over. And over again.
Cost: Average ($3-$5 for espresso beverages, $2-$4 for pastries, $5-$7 for sandwiches)
