Took a Sunday drive to Solvang. Had breakfast on the patio at Greenhouse Cafe. Wonderful food. Fresh, well prepared and flavorful. Had a delightful waitress. A fantastic place to spend a beautiful day.

Everything shuts down pretty early around Solvang and we needed something for dinner but wasn't ready to eat for another hour or so. We decided to stop in here and get some sandwiches to go. They held up really well until we ate them and everything including the potato salad was delicious.

Better than average food. Nice atmosphere windows all around. Waiter was sweet and attentive. A little dismayed we had to ask for silverware and napkins. Service was quick. We all had sandwiches and felt it was better than average. I felt for a vegetarian sandwich it was a bit over priced, almost 11$.

enjoyed the greenhouse like atmosphere. The food here was average, but I felt a bit high priced for quality and amount recieved. Yes I would go back though simply due to its proximity to the hotels and to shopping district.

Very nice to eat on the patio. We like the danish style open-faced sandwiches a lot, especially the roast beef, shrimp, herring.

I can't in good conscience go more than 3 stars for this review, but we saw plates going by that looked much better than what we ordered. We came for lunch, so I wasn't in the mood for something as heavy as meatballs, but I really wish I had tried them. They looked good, and I saw a few people... More

Had great smoothies and nice sandwiches for lunch in the open outdoor setting. Inside dining looked noisy and crowded and not very appealing.

A friend and I ate lunch here last month while spending the afternoon in Solvang. We had tried to eat at a few other places in town, but they were either closed, too crowded, or only served bakery items. The Greenhouse Café has a fairly basic menu. I chose the meatballs with gravy, red cabbage and potatoes. My friend had... More

Breakfast was excellent, especially the Nordic Omlette which was full of lobster chunks. Service was friendly and efficient and the outdoor seating area was peaceful. We were seated immediately and not rushed while enjoying breakfast.

The food was very tasty and the setting serene and quaint. The service was good. Dining outdoors was nice except for the flies.
