We came here both days of our stay, couldn't resist. Everything we got was delicious, even the bucket of butter cookies we brought back for the kids (it was gone quick).

The pastry dough on both the napolean and raspberry cream cheese bar was light, flaky and crispy. The flavors tasted very close to an actual European bakery. Definitely worth going to.

I just wanted to try everything! Very helpful and friendly staff offering suggestions on what we might want to try since we had not been there before and everything looked good and we couldn't try it all. Only wish they had small taster options which would allow us the opportunity to try more without all the calories of buying the... More

Oh my gosh the pastries are fantastic! They are real danish pastry's created just right. My favorite is the raspberry cream cheese turnover. The crust is so flaky. Must visit and indulge.

As soon as we reached Solvang we parked the car and went into Mortensens. The pastry selection was fantastic. We bought a couple and ate them there and had some tea. The staff could not have been nicer or more helpful. They were the most pleasant people I've ever encountered in a shop or a restaurant.

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!!!!
