Great pastries - friendly helpful staff

We only went for coffee and cake! We were not disappointed! The coffee was good but the apple turnovers were devine! The choice is very extensive - absolutely spoiled for choice. The staff were very friendly and helpful - football (soccer) fans all! Unusual in the US!

In our experience this is the best bakery in a town that is full of excellent bakeries!! Staff is friendly and bakery items fresh, delicious and the prices are fair.There is also a small area of "in-house" dining.

We purchased a little over $80.00, we blame ourselves for not tasting the cookies that were purchased. Everyone at $2.00 and up were the same dough with different filling each and everyone of them was terrible. Worst baked goods EVER tasted. Would suggest not to waste your money like we did.

It was average. We got the Apple Strudel. Had high expectations. It had good flavor, but I wasn't impressed. I have had much better ones back east.

Went here for breakfast, the place smelled delicious! The girls up front were nice, though I would suggest they have some more bounce to their attitude, they looked either super bored or just plain tired. We sat down and another lady gave us our coffee, she was very sweet and always had a smile on her face. Overall a really... More

Went to Mortensen's and had some of the best baked goods. This family owned and run bakery staff helps with the remainder of our time in the cute town of Solvagn. Great Danish....no pun intended.

Best cookies I ever had. I wish I brought more home and didn't have to share. Can't wait to go back from more.
