Delicious!!!!

I had never had a Danish pancake so I was too nervous to order one (I later found out it is basically just a crepe and as my username suggests I love crepes) so I decided to go with the French toast. It was delicious! The staff were all very friendly and inviting! They handmade their own jam and... read more

We were in Santa Barbara so we decided to make the 30 minute drive to Solvang and of course eat at Ellen;'s. We went at the perfect time in between breakfast and lunch so there was no wait. I eat healthier fare this time... with an egg white vegetarian omelette and a side of their homemade breakfast sausage patty. They... More

My avatar name, Captain Busy, was a result of my working as a Fire Captain in Santa Barbara County, that included Fire Station 31, which has Ellen's in its first in district. On Sunday mornings, if we were on shift, we had the choice of going to any of the local restaurants in Buellton that served breakfast. And it wasn't... More

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....
