Sweet Staff & Sweets!

This was a nice little place to get a treat and coffee/milk and sit outside! The ladies were super friendly. You must try the sweet treats when in Solvang.

Stopped here to get some desserts. Had a lemon bar which was not gooey and the bottom part was hard! Had to use a knife and fork to eat it. Not very tasty. However, my daughter tried the red velvet cupcake and loved it!

We have been to Solvang many times and this was the first time we found the Solvang Bakery. Without a doubt the best in town. Very nice selection and found the traditional Scandinavian pastries were excellent. Enjoyed the chocolate macaroon and cookies. Also got a bucket of the Danish Butter cookies and again outstanding.

The cream puffs are spectacular. Other stuff is good, too, but the cream puffs were something special. Great service here, too, very nice and helpful people!

Visited Solvang for the first time and what a great little town. Danish pastries at several stops but found that i liked the Solvang Bakery the best. The almond butter ring was out of this world and made me go back twice to buy more. The coconut macroons and the almond cookies also made a hit and followed me back... More

I convinced my family to visit Solvang on a trip through, even though a few of them thought it would be cheesy. I had been once before and wanted to share it. Of course, I was right, and they agreed it was actually lovely. :) (Yay, me!) Of course, I had to choose a bakery for some treats while there... More

Visited Solvang for the first time. What an absolutely delightful town. Couldn't resist many of the wonderful Danish pastries, including those at Solvang Bakery, Really cute place, great service, and scrumptious goodies. Their napoleons and cream puffs were a mile high! Can't wait to come back. Lost all our calories by walking all over Solvang. Great restaurants, shops, and plenty... More
