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.

We stopped in Solvang on our drive from Big Sur to LA and were looking for somewhere for lunch. The Greenhouse happened to be right by our (free) car park, so we had a quick look at the menu and decided to eat there. I had no complaints - it's just off the main drag so there isn't too much...

We stopped off here for a spot of lunch.,situated just off the Main Street in Solvang and it's also got outdoor seating if the weather is fine. I had the Danish hotdog which was pretty authentic which came with fries. My wife had the prawn salad which came with plenty of fresh prawns and I wished that I had chosen... More

Was just here with a friend who had her dog along. They allow you to sit at the outside tables with pets. They even brought water for the dog. The wait staff was friendly and service was good. The food was average.
