Give your sweet tooth a treat.

Nice large danish pastry shop. Friendly assistants and good selection of pastries to keep all happy. Only downside was that it was a little expensive, but no more than you would expect for such a touristy location. Overall recommended.

Service is non-existing. Waited for fifteen minutes at table before we were told you order at the counter. Fresh orange juice is straight out of a box. The pastries all look super sized and show none of the refinement that would exist in Europe. Tourist trap.

We came in on a Monday morning. It was fairly crowded, which might explain the poor cleanliness (crumbs everywhere). The employees seemed fairly rushed and irritated, and were neither friendly nor polite. I felt like an annoyance rather than a customer. Regardless, the cheese danish was delicious, although the coffee left something to be desired. Probably would not return again... More

Without a morning visit to Olsen's, you haven't really experienced Solvang. Very friendly staff. Pastry and rolls melt in your mouth, and are soooo delicious. Solvang is a yearly destination, and the Solvang Inn, and Olsen's Bakery make the visits remarkable. If you have the opportunity to be in Solvang, Olsen's is a "must".

Enjoyed good lattes each morning. They have a danish breakfast for about $8 that includes a drink, hard roll, havarti cheese and a danish. Lots of bakery choices and cute little plastic buckets of butter cookies for sale.

I have been coming to Solvang for over 30 years and this bakery is a MUST. It has by far the best pastries in all of Solvang. We ALWAYS stop here first and have a piece of Kringle and a cup of coffee at the tables outside. This year we decided to look at the other bakeries in town and... More

In the quaint town of Solvang, CA, you can't walk but a few steps without coming upon another bakery. We chose to stop at the Olsen's Danish Village Bakery Coffee Shop to sample some. I had a slice of the Chocolate Ganache while my husband had a Cherry Danish. It was very hard to make a decision. I wish we... More

We stopped in during a quick look at Solvang and selected an assortment of pastries. Everything we tried was ridiculously delicious. We had something called a mocha log I think. It was so good. The cheese danish was the best I've ever had. I will dream about these pastries for the rest of my life.

We stayed at the hotel across the street (Solvang Inn and Cottages) and they give you a coupon for a free danish and drink! After checking out in the morning, we walked across the street and headed inside. The smell is delightful and the pastries were very good. We all ended up buying more to take home to friends and...
