As we ambled across the little town of Solvang, we had visited this bakery in our earlier visit to Solvang and tasted their baked goods, especially the coconut macaroons!! very delicious. This visit, we went there specially to buy the coconut macaroon, which come in plain vanilla flavor and half chocolate covered. A bit pricy but worth every penny..

YOU have to stop here!!!! It was so hard to pick something because everything looked so good. We left spending over 30 dollars just because we could not decide. The cinnamon crisp was amazing. The bucket of cookies are too.

While in Solvang, stop in and have some pastries at Olsens'. They are the best in town. The people are so friendly and greet you warmly when you walk in the door. I had the Kringle and it's scrumptious. Flaky and sweet and yummy. All the pastries look wonderful.

Very good selection of Danish pastries and other sweets to choose from. The apple strudel was superb; not too sweet. Prices are quite reasonable.

We came here because we had sampled their gingersnaps at our hotel. We bought them, and then ended up returning to buy more before we left town. This is a charming and excellent bakery with a gift shop and dining tables inside. This is a "Must" stop when in Solvang!!!

This is my favorite bakery here in Solvang. I feel like they have a bigger selection of choices in Scandinavian goods, and the taste is amazing. I ordered a Danish waffle and a raspberry shortbread. The raspberry shortbread kind of looks like a pop tart with the vanilla icing on the top, but tastes way better. I also got a... More
