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

Four of us had late breakfast at the Greenhouse Café on 26 Dec 2015. Nice location with great daylight interior. Good food. Good Service. Would go here again.

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.
