Called in here for a coffee and, of course, something nice. Lots of yummy delights to choose from. Had a danish with raspberries. Staff friendly. Would go back if in the area.

We were going to Paula's Pancakes but it was too crowded. My wife noticed Olsen's next door, so we opted for pastries and coffee. Greeted by a friendly workers, the pastries were delicious. Cinnamon roll, lemon danish and donut holes. Very enjoyable!!

Authentic family owned Danish bakery with display cases to make ones mouth water. Would highly recommend the Danish waffles.

Located in the heart of town & next to Paula's pancake, you can get a variety of pastry & Danish & coffee. They can warm up your pastry if asked. The coffee is weak even with a double espresso. Don't expect gourmet coffee here. They are fast, efficient, and friendly.

Olsen's is a wonderful place to take home a taste of what Solvang is best known for- Danish pastry. You basically cannot go wrong with anything you buy at this wonderful bakery, whether it is danish pastry, pies, cake, or cookies. Also they have some delicious coffees to taste and a few tables if you want to eat and drink... More

I tried several of their pastries when I was in Solvang, and they were all really good. My favorite was a boat shaped cherry one. I will definitely come back next time we are here!

This treat goes by two names but whatever you call it you have to try it. Crispy, flaky with cream and raspberry in the middle. Butter cookies and Almond Florentine s also magical. Worth a stop!

The richness of this chocolate covered rum soaked marzipan will make you dance. The sensation you get from one of these will lush your body from head to toe! The owner, Bent Olsen, was super kind and he loaded our Danish box with goodies when we mentioned we watched him on YouTube. We went back two days in a row... More
