The prices were moderate for the absolutely light delicious pastries! The coffee was bitter. The atmosphere was like any eat in bakery-none! The staff was warm and quick serving!

When in Solvang, you must purchase Danish pastries, right? No place better than Martensen's. If you are looking for a pastry to feed several people, then look no further than the butter ring. Most bakeries in Solvang sell butter rings, but Mortensen's has THE BEST. Trust me! We live here. You will be in heaven!!!!

Stop on our trip north on highway 1 - yes it is a detour - in Solvang and got a snack at the bakery. The staff was super friendly. We were told a bit about the history of the bakery. Owned by the family for 45 years. All the pastry is home made and made every morning...you can taste it.... More

Great variety of pastries and homemade breads! Quaint little alcove where you can eat a pastry and sip on iced tea (free refills)!

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.
