You can not go wrong with any of the bakery's in Solvang...but Olson's is the best...so says me. Apple Strudel is the best. If you make arrangements ahead of time you can bring 3 or 4 home with you. But order and pay the night before...they sell out fast.

We visit Solvang about once a year, and if I'm being honest, Olsen's is the reason we go at all. We make a special trip down from Pismo Beach where we visit Olsen's, get our fill for breakfast goodies and then order Crispies to go for later. We walk around Solvang and head back. Seriously, who doesn't enjoy a Danish... More

Friend of mine reminded me of the Danish Cookie buckets sold all over Solvang and I found some at this place. Must admit these cookies were awesome. Brought a bucket home to my friend to which he was totally thankful. Made him miss his old stomping grounds.

We purchased a huge cinnamon swirl cookie. My four year old was living the giant cookie and would not share, so we're purchase another and a cream puff pastry. Both were excellent!

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!!
