Hometown Diner Great Breakfast!

I like this place. I bring my visitors here for breakfast because they have the classics, and some Danish dishes. Nothing over the top. It's very warm and cozy inside, mostly booth seating. The service is ALWAYS great. My favorite are the danish pancakes (as opposed to buttermilk). They are... read more

We went here for breakfast and abelskievers. I'd advise asking for the jam on the side. Rest of breakfast was great, only marred by Log Cabin syrup on the tables. Oh well.

Had breakfast here. It was packed but everyone was happily eating their meal. The menu is varied and the food was great. The Aebleskivers were hot and fresh, but a little too sweet for me. Interesting to try though. The atmosphere is good, really Skandinavian.

If you want the real thing, you must go to the Solvang Restaurant for Aebleskivers. They have a giant copper aebleskiver cook-top and make them fresh. They also offer their own mix and pans, as well as an instructional DVD. Gus was very informative about the restaurant and some of the items on the menu. The Danish sausage is mild... More

We came here for breakfast. The food was reasonable priced and tasty. Our server was friendly, prompt, and accommodating. The restaurant had a Viking type theme which fit into the style of the town. There is a counter as well as booths to sit in. I didn't try any of their Danish food but wish that I had. They are... More

Anyone in Solvang will tell you the best Aebleskivers can be found at Solvang Restaurant. They make them hot to order. It's a delicious snack!

We stopped by on dec 31st. Party of eight we were seated immediately. Not your usual coffee shop menu.. We had the danish sausage and liver and onions. The have couple of kinds of mustard. Not a fan of their special dessert with raspberry sauce It seemed uncooked... But maybe thats how is supposed to be. Service was very good.... More

Not many places make the Abelskivers. We found this restaurant had a walk up window where you can order them to go. They come as 3 large balls dusted with confectioner's sugar and a hot jam syrup over top. Honestly, I love making these at home. It's a real art. I make mine with the jelly or other filling in...
