We couldn't resist the look of the cream puffs at Solvang Bakery, and they did not disappoint. The custard and cream filling was excellent. Be warned there is no delicate way to eat them, and they are massive. We will be back to try a Danish which also looked delicious.

I bought the danish ring with almond custed and raisins was very good even after a few days. I also had their crossbun and bearclaw which were quite good. It was a treat sitting in the sun enjoying the pastry while people watching. You should get your coffee fix somewgere else though.

The window displays, particularly of Solvang bakery was stunning, so I gave in to my temptation and I bought some chocolate cookies and Danish pastry to eat for later which were delicious.

there'a a lot of bakeries in Solvang to chose from but this little gem was great. Lots of people coming and going was a good sign there was something up. Big selection, tasty samples and the coffee and chocolate macaroons were just the jolt we need to keep going

I'm not much of a sweet eater but if you're going to eat sweets, try the delicious cream puffs at The Solvang Bakery. Nice atmosphere, tables inside to eat, really nice staff and, most of all, a huge cream puff that that not only tasted great but was pretty too.
