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!

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.

At breakfast get the home fries and the biscuits, jam is home made and very good. A bit pricy for breakfast and lunch, but you... More

While staying in Solvang, we decided to try Ellen's based on the TripAdvisor recommendations. We were not disappointed as the food was hot and yummy and really well priced. A great value. We went there for dinner and tried two of their specials on the chalkboard. The trout was tasty and fresh and the pork roast was tender and flavorful.... More

Stopped here with my wife on our vacation in Solvang. The atmosphere was definitely small town feel, the staff were friendly and saw many of the locals eating here. Food was typical Pancake House style, nothing 5 star but Homestyle food good prices. Portions were large, left happy.

great breakfast, after trying many times to get in when passing thru, finally got in. great staff, cannot say enough good things, Rachel is a doll, she went way beyond call of duty when I had a medical emergency after eating-not related. couldn't finish the short stack-a first for me, go and leave full, worth the wait
