I loved this old-fashioned bakery. Go for their specialities, like the kringles and danishes. They're excellent. The butter cookies and almond-triangle-things are great! They have tables & chairs so that you can sit down and enjoy their goods with coffee if you'd like. I was a little hesitant to try this place because of some reviews on another site, but... More

We drove to Solvang from our cruise port in Santa Barbara. I was hungry but nobody else in the party was. So I decided to just grab something quick here. That turned into 30 minutes of gawking and tasting, in which nobody else could resist. We had raspberry danishes, cinnamon rolls, and Russian tea cookies. Needless to say, we stopped... More

While visiting in Solvang for the afternoon, a friend and I stopped in for an afternoon treat. There were a number of appealing pastries and I settled on the Swedish Delight Pastry which had a meringue shell, layers of whipped cream and chocolate shavings. I also had an almond tart (I love anything with almond paste in it). Both pastries... More

We tasted Olsen's pastry for breakfast... delicious! The staff was VERY nice, a woman came to our table and gave us some advices for our trip, she speaks english, danish, spanish and... italian! I would recommend this bakery for taking a rest during a trip and relax, tasting their delicious pastries!

I always stop by and pick up a couple of Kringles. The Kringle is a pretzel shaped Danish pastry filled with almond paste and a little bit of custard. Delicious. I buy two and freeze one for the times when I have a craving. I cut a piece, reheat it in the toaster oven and it tastes like it just... More

LindaRoo: Thank you for the 4 Star Review and your patronage. You're doing everything right by putting the Kringle in the freezer and then heating the Kringle in the toaster oven. It will fall flat when you use the micro wave. We recommend NOT using the micro wave. We're glad you enjoy Olsen's Kringle and thankful for your support it... More

You can't beat the selection and quality in comparison with the other bakeries in the area. I always go back to Olsen's. The bucket of cookies is always my bring back gift for others.

There are several bakeries in Solvang and we have tried most of them. Olsen's remains a favorite as the pastries are fresh, flakey, and delicious! Enjoy!

A variety of yummy Danish pastries with especially good apple strudel. The hot cocoa was super chocolatey and hubby loved the good coffee that came with refills. Don't miss the 50% off day olds against the wall. We took them home and stuck them in the freezer. They thaw quickly, top with a bit of butter, pop in the microwave... More
