The pancakes are fantastic....thin and light. Also the Danish sausage links are unique and quit tasty. Crowds gather on the weekends so there is a wait list. Friendly staff and family atmosphere.

If you're looking to treat yourself - this is the place! Olsen's has so many choices for "yummy" treats. Danish pastries and other delights are all available. There are even a few for those with gluten/wheat restrictions! Although many are a bit pricey, especially for families, that is what sometimes goes hand-in-hand with "treating" oneself - right?! :)

We've tried all the petit fours in Solvang (tough job but someone had to do it) and the ones made by Olsen's are the best. I highly (mouth watering as I do this), I HIGHLY recommend the raspberry one (white with little flowers on top - see the photo, you don't want to mess this up). Seriously, incredible.

Had Danish continental breakfast as part of a deal with our motel. Breakfast was great--large, fresh roll, very creamy Havarti cheese, Danish pastry, orange juice, and coffee, tea or milk. Attentive table service once you make your selection at the counter. Bread and pastry were first class. Would definitely go back if in the area.

We (4 of us) had several different pastries so we could do some tasting, they were all really good! The one i liked best was the Swedish one made with merengue, this one upon recommendation of the clerk.
