While the lemon tart wasn't so tasty, the pastries themselves are pretty good. Essentially the same fate as most places in town, but it seems fresher and the cookie selection was better as well. I've tried each place in town now and Danish Mill seems to have the best.

Was quite a selection to Drool over! I asked "which of the sweet rolls were actually danish quote? And the answer was sadly "just the Danish actually." LOL. Still, there were a few baked items I have seen before. It's also a coffee shop with a rather extensive menu.

rude lady with long dark hair and thick makeup made 2 very weak coffee's. we went back in and politely told her and she was obviously not happy about the fact I asked for stronger coffee. she reluctantly put another shot in it but proceeded to talk to another lady in Spanish and made us feel like she was complaining...

These are my favorite of the ubiquitous Danish cookies. Get two tubs! Be aware that they don't take Amex, so bring another card or cash. Danish were fine, but better at Birkholm's. Have not had the other food so cannot comment.

If you want a very tasty pastry, definitely go to the Danish Mill Bakery in Solvang! You will love every pastry here as well as the sandwiches! Everything is tasty! Every time we come to Solvang we have to go to the Danish Mill Bakery.

In case you don't know, one does not go to Solvang for the food. The food in ALL the so-called Danish restaurants in Solvang are really ersatz Danish-American glop. That being said, one does go for the Danish pastries at any one of the numerous bakeries in town. I've tried them all and what separates the best from the worst... More

Being from Denmarks neighbor Sweden it was quite amazing to find something more Danish than Denmark itself, the town is almost like a theme park! At the Danish Mill Bakery we found delicious pastrys!

Even though this bakery was located next to our hotel....we looked at all the bakeries in town. We really liked this one the best. A bit pricey...but the treats were delicious. Its hard to make a decision as to which one(s)! Cute items for sale inside the cafe.
