Great bakery with a selection of goodies that makes it hard to choose. This is a family owned and run bakery. Service was great and the items we had were excellant, the crust were light and flaky and melted in your mouth. The filling fresh and very tasty. We will return on our next visit.

A wide variety of Danish pastries await you for a morning breakfast treat here at Mortensen's. We had the eclair and puff pastry. We were expecting to take a bite, but ate the whole thing! The lady behind the counter is very friendly and we were greeted by a young gentlemen right at the door. What a happy way to... More

There was a power outage at some of the restaurants so we stopped into this bakery. I ordered the apple strip & a cup of coffee. The pastry was delicious & I was surprised the coffee was as well. Despite being overwhelmingly busy, the staff were very friendly. We stopped by again before we left Solvang & picked up cookies... More

My wife and stopped in on a day trip and shared some tastey pastries. Everything about the place is top notch. Priced in line for the area, the value for such quality is unmatched.

We've been coming to Mortenson's for over 25 years. This is our favorite spot to pick up something sweet, like apple strudel, butter cookies, or on this trip it was my birthday, and I crammed a whole piece of cake in my mouth for a very sweet breakfast.

A lot of bakery choices in Solvang but Mortensen's is one of the best. Once you order there are plenty of seats inside and outside which other bakeries don't have. Our table had a Napoleon, eclair and cream puff. All were great. Raspberry iced tea was good too. Friendly service and freshly backed fron Denmark recipes.

How does a Napoleon straight from the kitchen after being made sound? Or Danish just made and cooled? To good to be true you say? Not here. The original pastry chef came from Denmark with his recipes and even though he is gone, the recipes carry on. The master pastry chef certainly has the perfect touch. Dough that is light... More

The quaint building and great smells draw you in as you walk by. We had some delicious rum balls and took some turnovers to go. The staff could have been a little friendlier but the pastries were yummy!
