My family and I had breakfast here today. A little disappointed that they did not have children's menus. Food was good. My son ordered the danish pancakes and (he is only 4 years old and loves pancakes) the pancakes were burnt. My other child ordered the Belgium waffles and loves them. We also... read more

So we had breakfast here and the omelettes were excellent and they had really good coffee. But the standout was what we ordered on a whim - the aebleskiver. I would describe this as the perfect breakfast pastry and it was not loaded with sugar, which is something that we have come to expect in others. You won't be dissappointed

It was nice and had a varied menu. The location was great and it was quite quaint. I would recommend it.

Very clean, food was good (I had Danish pancakes and my husband had sausage and eggs). Price was reasonable, coffee was strong. Our server was a very sweet young girl who saw to all of our needs.

Upon arriving in Solvang, we walked about and I bought some great shoes at the Solvang shoe store. Worked up an appetite shopping....haha. We wanted brunch, and were told by the adjoining Danish pastry shop that this was the place to enjoy a Nice Brunch. We ordered the traditional sausage and eggs and the Danish sausage was delightful. Our server,... More

You can get a salad and good ole American eats here, but try the Danish open faced sandwiches and the Danish hot dog. Delicious flavors!

Open faced Herring. Absolutely delicious. I've had the same from some Danish friends ' smorgasbord at their house and this one is right up there. I don't do gluten so, they accommodated me by swapping out the curry pasta and giving me the red cabbage which was absolutely tasty. Great service! Beautiful venue!

Loved the staff! Service with a smile and constant attention. Food was great. Only draw back was the drinks are served in child-size glasses instead of regular soda glasses. Otherwise, two thumbs up!

This Greenhouse Cafe had the most generously sized breakfast that was delicious! The local dishes are featured and fun to try. The prices are moderately priced. I would highly recommend this place!

Love the location (directly across from Mortenson's Danish Bakery), the menu and the personable wait staff who are happy to cater to canine customers on the shaded patio. From the Danish specialities to good old American fare, breakfast dishes and more, the menu has something for everyone. The steak salad is delicious, with perfectly seasoned, grilled steak mixed with crisp... More
