Good Danish food!

My friend and I went to Solvang for the Danish days festival. Had lunch at the Greenhouse Café located right in the middle of everything and just 5min walk from Mission Santa Ines. The restaurant is nice and clean and they have patio seating. I ordered the famous sausage and meatballs with red... read more

This time of year (Nov.) only breakfast and lunch, and our breakfast was wonderful; service excellent; everybody there looks like they want to be there; try the very Danish tasty sausage (not your salty Jimmy Dean from the supermarket) w/your eggs.

We visited Solvang on a friend's recommendation. Picked the Greenhouse for brunch on a whim because it was near our parked car. I had an open faced sandwich, which was ok, but was very envious of my partner's absolutely amazing delicious (Swedish?) pancakes. Service was good and attentive on a weekday late morning.

LOVED the Greenhouse cafe!!! stumbled upon the cafe when first pulling into solvang for our first time. We were very pleased with the location, service, and food! They serve greenstar coffee which was amazing! We had to go back the next morning just for the coffee alone!

This little restaurant was kind of tucked away but was close to the public parking and we decided to give it a try rather than wander further, we are very glad we did ! This really was the best breakfast of our week vacation, my husband ordered the lobster omellete and was ready to return the next day for a... 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

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.

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 ordered the Copenhagen omelette and the nordic... More

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
