Great food, although I felt it was very expensive - 3 people & bill was $41 for breakfast. But in their defense CA is expensive, we figure we paid about 1/3 more for each person's meal in CA than we do in our home state. I'm not a fan of their prices, but the food & service was great.

We needed a place to have a delicious breakfast in hopes to start a fabulous vacation and followed this site's advice. I was really disappointment by the up keeping of this place, the white lace curtains look brown and the carpet is so old it has a musty scent. I understand trying to keep the essence do country style feel... More

It was good, expect a wait during peak tourist season anyway! We had lunch as it was after 11, the food was good but I think I should have ordered breakfast as that seems to be their specialty. Solvang in general is a must do!!! So many nice shops, people, etc.

Took my family out in the morning and followed the delicious smell of bacon, pancakes, sausage and other breakfast items we later track down to this excellent restaurant. Food and service were awesome. Only drawbacks were a slight wait if you wanted to eat indoors and the proximity of the restrooms to the eating area.

I agree with other reviewers on the wait time....it took about 10 minutes to even get someone to stop by the table for water. But...having said that...it is so worth the wait! The pancakes were amazing. The rest of the breakfast was good with eggs, hash browns, fresh squeezed orange juice...but the pancakes were just perfect! Light and fluffy...tasty. OK...now... More

This place kills it on the weekends. Good pancakes, awesome patio. We had to wait about 20 minutes but they were really good at turning the tables over quickly. Go for a hearty breakfast before all that wine tasting!!

The food and service was fine, but there must have been 25-30 flies buzzing inside. I felt like I spent more time swatting the flies then I did eating.

Breakfast lovers will find inner peace here. The lowdown: Make sure at least one person in your party orders the Danish style pancake and Danish sausage. The corned beef hash was delicious. The OJ is freshly squeezed and so make sure to get some along with your coffee as you sit outside under an umbrella enjoying the small village atmosphere... More
