Food is good here, all 3 meals. Breakfast a little pricey. Bacon, egg were good. Others enjoyed the crepes. At lunch the stuffed tomato was delicious.

Breakfast served all day with your choice of Danish or American style pancakes and anything else you could want for breakfast. Lunch offers both Cold and hot entrées. Huge portions! Family home style dining.

This is an open restaurant with wonderful servers and great food. The Danish pancakes are delish as are their meats and eggs and, well, anything you see on the menu will be plentiful and tasty. If you can't eat it all, it's always good to take it with you for a snack later OR share one dish with a sweetie.... More

We searched for a good breakfast place while driving north of Santa Barbara and liked the name of this location, Danish Pancake House. They actually had those very thin pancakes from the old country! Great choice for a family style, friendly stop.

The food here is a very well prepared eggs, bacon, et al type place. They do it well with large portions. Be sure to ask for a side of Lipitor 😜😜

Very good breakfast. We had the Danish Pancakes. My husband never orders Pancakes but decided to join me in the adventure since we'd never had them. They were great. Larger and thinner than American Pancakes. He had syrup but I had the homemade jam they place on every table. Amazing! we ordered ours with 1 egg each and a side... More

One might think by its name that it's primarily a breakfast place. Although their breakfasts are outstanding, it does not end there. Anytime of the day or night, this place provides a wonderful dining experience with not only excellent quality, but quantity as well. You'll not leave feeling well fed but also, more than not, with a so called "doggy... More
