Old fat guy heaven

If you like pastries and who doesn't you have to try this place creamy rich buttery crunchy flaky layers each bite melts into my mouth. Like a hobo on a ham sandwich I could not stop eating these things. Probably going to need a good shot of insulin after this.

Have visited Mortensen's on several happy occasions - love their variety of pastires, especially the Pistachio Squares, deliciously dipped in dark chocolate. Everything they make is wonderful, and the coffee is good too!!!

A lovely little bakery with numerous delicious pastries, a great way to end a lovely day in Solvang, a hidden gem in California. The service was good and pastries not dissimilar to those in Denmark.

We stopped in at closing time and she was so nice. We asked for ham and cheese pastries, which they don't serve, so she gave us a bagful of free pastries, delicious!

We walked along Copenhagen Dr just doing a little sightseeing and ran across this little gem of a bakery. Forget your diet, go in and buy enough pastries to stock your house for a week!! It's that good. We made this our last stop before driving home. So we loaded up with goodies that I am still looking and salivating... More

We purchased a variety of danish pastries to take to a friends beach house in Malibu, they were delicious but quite pricey, liked the cinnamon and the almond flavours, always a favourite. They were well received and enjoyed by all. A good end to our holiday before returning to England.

They make the best danish in town. The dough is so flaky. I love the with or with out raisins cinnamon rolls. The cherry danish is also great. I have been eating them for the past 30 years and they are always consistent. They are a bit pricey but worth it as well as the calories

Mortensen's Bakery is on the top of our list for Danish waffles! They are yummy and so over-priced, but a girl's got to do what a girl's got to do while in Solvang! Most of their Danish pastries feature almond paste (a flavoring both my husband and I dislike), but we were able to find a cherry boat and an... More
