Large breakfast, piping hot and speedy service. The sausage served with breakfast was better than at most of the Solvang restaurants where we have had lunches and dinners. Their breakfasts are excellent.

Ate here for breakfast. Danish pancakes and their home made sausage is one of their specialties. It was tasty. If you are looking for ebelskivers, they do not make them here.

Have not visited Solvang in almost 20 years. We used to visit when our kids were little. I posted a picture of our pancake's on Facebook and all my kids knew immediately where we were. The pancakes were just as light as we remembered. The bacon was out of this world. I hope we don't have to wait another 20... More

We recently visited Solvang and enjoyed a great breakfast of Danish Pancakes (crepe-like, light, thin pancakes) with choice of fruit on top, with bacon and eggs. This was excellent in that the cakes were so light and not the heavy-type cakes that you usually eat elsewhere. Go early as it gets crowded after 9 am.

We had a very good breakfast at Paula's and sat in the patio area. The Danish pancakes are very good and with fresh whipped cream and real fresh strawberries, they are a treat. Try the Danish sausage which was quite tasty. Our service was good and it was fun sitting among a lot of foreign visitors who were trying to... More

I'm a bacon 'n eggs kinda guy for my typical breakfast ,not a huge fan of buttermilk pancakes. But this restaurant has Danish Pancakes on the menu so I had to try them. With blueberries . And yes they were fantastic, worth the price of admission!! It's a very busy place so I would recommend reservations at least on weekends.... More

Had the Irish eggs benedict. They were excellent. Cooked to perfection! My son had the pancakes with fresh blueberries which were excellent as well. The wait is long but it is well worth the wait.

One phrase: Eggs Benedict Hemmingway! Eggs Benedict with smoked salmon. Wonderful. [And TripAdvisor wants more characters. I SWEAR you don't need any more.]

Fabulous place for breakfast. I really wanted eggs rather than pancakes and they did not disappoint. Great service and food - recommended!
