We briefly stopped in Solvang for a visit and we bought 2 cheese and cherry Danishes. They really were excellent. I would recommend picking up some Danish even if it is takeaway.

Place to relax and sit after walking the back streets. Enjoyed a bottomless cup of hot coffee and shared 3 types of homemade danish. Husbands 1st trip to Solvang, so wanted him to have this great experience. He loved it! Nice gift shop next door.

Loved the fresh cakes and excellent service. We ate chocolate eclair and Swedish Cake - both of which melts in the mouth.

This bakery on the edge of town has a great variety of pastries. The staff is friendly, patient and will wrap gifts separately if asked. We purchased a nice selection of sweet treats to enjoy on our ride up to SLO. It was a worthwhile detour to eat lunch in Solvang and pick up goodies. Parking is best across the... More

Just picked up pastries from the bakery to take home. They wrapped and boxed them and even two days later they were wonderful to eat. Such nice goodies and good service.

We stopped in to this charming Danish bakery after lunch and ended up buying what seems like half the store. Great pastries at a reasonable price. Try the cinammon swirls or the bear claws. In fact everything we bought was perfect. I highly recommed this bakery of pasty and coffee are what you are looking for. Located right on Mission.

Whilst travelling on the West Coast I read in the guide book that if you have time then detour to Solvang and take in the Danish surroundings. What a wonderful surprise to come across this amazing town and all its Danish beauty. We called into Olsen's for lunch and it was really really good and so cheap!. The staff were... More

Thank you for the 4 Star Review and your patronage. We're glad you enjoyed a "Wonderful Experience" in our Danish Community. Many of the pastries you enjoyed are authentic Danish recipes that Mr. Olsen brought with him from the family bakery in Denmark when he moved here in 1970. We hope you will return soon. More

The coffee(I drink decaf) is flowing and a good variety of pasties available. Go early for easy seating near window.
