The Danish pancakes were light and more crepe-like. I had the one stuffed with sausage and it was good.

I was duped by the copious amount of great reviews on another website. Paula's pancake house is ordinary at best. I have honestly had better breakfast at IHOP, and for less money.however, it's solving, so one does expect to pay tourist prices. Breakfast for two with only one beverage was $28.30. have you ordered the combo with the Danish sausage.... More

Breakfast here was very good, staff is very friendly. They could improve their breakfast potatoes which lacked flavor. But other than that, enjoyed all five mornings here on my recent trip.

They weren't too busy this morning, so no wait. Very friendly service! Danish pancakes looked great, but we went with Eggs Benedict.. One half-order of traditional and a full-order of Hemingway with smoked salmon. Both were great! Eggs were poached perfectly! Try the grilled Danish sausage, different, but also very good. Great place to start off a day of wine... More

Every time I am in Solvang it is a must to stop for pancakes at Paula's Pancake House. Absolutely the very best ever. Be prepared to wait in line as there is ALWAYS a long line of fans. Make it a must stop for you too.

We walked around and ended up choosing this place because of the reviews. I know that not everyone's experience is the same, but we had great service and very good food! I really wanted to try Danish pancakes and while I have nothing to compare them to (like someone whose mother came from Denmark and always made these had home),... More

We had breakfast here while in solvang. It seems to be the "thing" to do. We only waited about 10 mi Utes but it was 7:30 a.m.! I had the eggs Benedict and it was good but nothing special. Hubby had the Danish pancakes with the Danish sausage. He said the pancakes were just okay we both thought the sausage... More
