It was a little tricky getting to this restaurant as they were doing some road work. The parking lot is a little small, but there's extra parking to the right where you go down a dirt road. You have to come back out the same way as there is no other exit in that lot. I wanted to try the... More

Very crowded. Line out front waiting to get in. Good for them, the problem for us as customers is that we avoid going during busy times as the noise level is close to unbearable. The food is always good, consistent, they serve great Danish pancakes and all the traditional things one expects for breakfast.

While staying at a hotel in the area, we planned to eat at Paula's Pancake house. An employee at our hotel told us we could get the same food and avoid all the tourists by heading to the sister location, Ellen's, where the locals go. The Danish pancakes were very good and the service was great.

Just visited Ellen's for the first time with my grandparents, and overall, it was a great experience. We were a little wary going in because of the bad reviews on here, but when we got there, the service was prompt and friendly, the food was quick, delicious and the portions were massive. I'd say this is a nice, small diner,... More

There are not many places to eat in Buellton. We scoured over the reviews and limited restaurant choices finally deciding on Ellen's Danish Pancake House for dinner as we were not up for the couple of steak restaurants listed. We were so very pleasantly surprised by the wonderful trout dinner...so fresh and very delicious along with the baked potatoe and... More

Although this restaurant is most famous for its breakfasts, I have to say that it's dinner is the best. They do a barbecued prime rib that is out of this world. The prices are fair for a tourist restaurants, and the food is excellent and always consistent. The staff is outstanding. Once you've been there a couple times, they remember... More

Drive a few miles out of Solvang and get yourself to Ellen's Danish Pancake House. The Danish-style pancakes are a cross between a crepe & a pancake. If the fresh strawberries & whipped cream pancakes are available = do not even look at the rest of the menu = ORDER IT. You will never be happier and your taste buds... More

If you want to wrap your taste buds around authentic Danish pancakes, look no further than Ellen's Danish Pancake House! Located close to the Danish town of Solvang, Ellen's is within easy walking distance of several nice hotels and the Flying Flags RV Park. The portions are huge. The Danish-style pancakes have to be seen - and tasted - to... More

This is a quaint "Coffee Shop" type restaurant, which has outstanding food. The Danish Pancakes were excellent. Danish Sausages were an extra surprise in taste. If you don't want to deal with the lines at the restaurants in Solvang, you can not go wrong here.
