Of all the various Danish pancake focused restaurants in the greater Solvang/Buellton metro, Ellen's provides solid service, good food, and great turn over, so even when there's a wait, it'll never be too long. Coffee is fine, Danish pancakes are good, and the patty sausage is great. Ample parking. Try the Danish sausage pancakes. They're an experience.

Best were the thin pancakes. Huge portions. One came with an over abundance of Danish sausage which we found to be very rich. Certainly a place to enjoy a unique breakfast.

Went for breakfast with a larger group and although busy, they were able to accommodate our large party in the back room. Very friendly waitress! The food is good and nice size portions. Will eat there again!

This restaurant has an amazing breakfast. The service was quick and attentive and the food was phenomenal! The home-made jam was a delicious bonus. Highly recommend this restaurant!

Got to try the Danish Pancakes here. Really good prices and quick service. Easy to get to and close to the RV park we were staying at. I would like to try their Lunches next time....
