Great patio seating and comfortable seating inside as well. Casual atmosphere. Great Danish breakfast, lots of tasty sandwiches for lunch (love the pesto chicken), and yummy dinner options. Very friendly service.

We were here in March and the weather was perfect to sit outside on the patio. Took a few minutes too long to get our drinks, but that's the only negative aspect of our visit. I got the Swedish meatballs and red cabbage and hubby got the Nordic combo. Both were fantastic. The meatballs are pure meat, hardly any fillers... More

We asked to share this breakfast and it came out already split for us. It was amazing, lots of chunks of tender lobster folded into a perfectly cooked omelette. Potatoes were very tasty, the service was attentive.

Delightful and conveniently located place with both indoor and outdoor service. Recommended by several of the local businesses. Hearty breakfast at a reasonable price.

Had a late lunch and ordered the Nordic combination. We both enjoyed it, red cabbage, Danish sausage, and meatballs either gravy and potatoes. Good, but very rich. Come with an appetite. price was about $13, got a lot of food

There were four of us for lunch and we all ordered something different. Everything was delicious and the outdoor seating was great!

We decided to try this place because it was across the street from our hotel... Wine Valley Inn. Such great luck! We took a patio table and ordered the Lobster Havarti Omelette and æbleskivers. My husband said the omelette was the best he's ever had. He also loved the coffee. He also thought the æbleskivers were the best in town.... More

We sat outside and ordered Danish food being in Solvang. The food was very bland, but I guess that's the way Danish food is. Perhaps we should have ordered off the American side of the menu. The service was quick but would have been better if the waitress didn't pour ice tea on me.

We brought our dog, and sat outside. We had a Danish meatball plate which was very hearty. Potatoes were excellent. We had a small carafe of house wine, which was very good. Service was friendly, but the abelskivers were only available for breakfast.

The Greenhouse Cafe was recommended by a young woman who worked at one of the bakeries in Solvang. She told us that the owner was from Denmark and these were her recipes. We were glad we chose it. I got the Nordic Combination with Danish sausage & Swedish meatballs served with pan-friend potatoes, gravy, red cabbage. Very good. My husband... More
