On the way home we stopped here to pick up some bread. Needless to say we ended up with a bucket of Danish butter cookies, an apple strudel (for the sake of your taste buds don't pass this up). It's better than German Apple Strudel which I grew up on. If you are a marzipan lover, don't pass on the... More

Be prepared, sweet tooth, for a delightful adventure in danishes and other baked goodies. After trying all the bakeries in Solvang, we concluded that Olsen's is the one we must go to; great selection, well made dough and not as sweet as the other Solvang bakeries.

If you only try one thing during your visit to Solvang, it better be these little golden balls of heaven. SO AMAZING! LIFE CHANGING! They are small pancake balls that will make you crave them like an addict.

This bakery has a real good selection of yummy pastries. The eclair's and various fruit 'boats' we're very tasty. The hot chocolate is smooth and creamy, tastes great on a chilly morning. It's located in the center of town, next to Paula's Pancakes. Lots of shops around to walk off those extra calories! Will definitely come back here.

I loved this old-fashioned bakery. Go for their specialities, like the kringles and danishes. They're excellent. The butter cookies and almond-triangle-things are great! They have tables & chairs so that you can sit down and enjoy their goods with coffee if you'd like. I was a little hesitant to try this place because of some reviews on another site, but... More

We drove to Solvang from our cruise port in Santa Barbara. I was hungry but nobody else in the party was. So I decided to just grab something quick here. That turned into 30 minutes of gawking and tasting, in which nobody else could resist. We had raspberry danishes, cinnamon rolls, and Russian tea cookies. Needless to say, we stopped... More

While visiting in Solvang for the afternoon, a friend and I stopped in for an afternoon treat. There were a number of appealing pastries and I settled on the Swedish Delight Pastry which had a meringue shell, layers of whipped cream and chocolate shavings. I also had an almond tart (I love anything with almond paste in it). Both pastries... More
