History of Victorian Corner: Pacific Grove at one time began as a
small religious retreat area and now is known as the last home town. As Pacific Grove developed in the turn of the 20th century, the
old El Carmelo Hotel stood across the street with its beautiful
architecture and even more fabulous park in front, and Pine
forest overlooking the Monterey Bay in back.
Victorian Corner started
out as an Indian Relics and Shells
Shop. Selling anything from pottery and barbed wire to
square head copper nails and shells from the sea. The
architecture of Victorian Corner has been unchanged since it has
been built. The high ceilings, beautiful windows, stained glass
and exterior trim makes this building one of the most beautiful
commercial Victorian buildings ever built. As the Aliotti's
migrated to Monterey Peninsula both from Sicily as young
children, they both knew once they were married they would enjoy
being in the restaurant business. They opened their
Sicilian-style restaurant in 1977.
breakfast menu runs the gamut from sesame seed buckwheat pancakes and homemade granola to
like the San Francisco Joe made with beef, spinach and mushrooms, or the
much-in-demand tostada omelet.
Lunch finds a large selection of sandwiches
(like meatballs in marinara, hot pastrami, or eggplant with mushrooms
and melted Jack)
along with two styles of quiche daily. If you're packing an appetite the lunch special
always $7.95 and comes with soup or salad and choice of beverage.
Eggplant and veal Parmesan are perennially
popular dinner choices as well as a broad selection of pasta and
seafood favorites like
seafood spaghetti and baked sole Florentine.
And, as with any self-respecting authentic
Italian menu, homemade cannolis are recommended from the list of
scones stuffed with ricotta cream and stuffed with chocolate chips comprise this Sicilian
Stop by the Victorian Corner in another 20 years, and chances are they'll
still hold a place on the menu."
