What a delightful bakery. The petit fours took me back to my childhood with visits to my Gran. The service was great and the delicacies even better

Awesom bakery offering a broad variety of european style pastries, baked goods and more. Very friendly staff, awesome tasting food. Not too many seats available, but the place does not appear to be crowded too often so seating should be no problem.

At our staff retreat, we all made Gingerbread houses with lots of candy at Solvang Bakery. It was so well organized- great tools, candy, training and service. We sat out on the patio and laughed, decorated and completely enjoyed ourselves. I can not say enough about how wonderfully the staff was during our two hours together. All the supplies, drinks,...

I love coming into Solvang bakery when I am looking for a single slice of cake. They do a fantastic job with everyday cakes and WEDDING CAKES. They have a rainbow layer cake that is so beautiful and tasty, but my favorite is the carrot cake. They have plenty of danishes to choose from and fantastic fresh coffee. Walk on... More

Tried three bakeries in town and this one was less fresh and tasty. Products are brought in from the next town over not cooked on premise.

In the midlle of Solvang, a great place to enjoy a good pastry. Tasty. The service was extremely friendly and there are some little tables outside in the backyard to enjoy a good coffee and a pastry.

It was August 16, Tuesday noon when we went there. As per reviews here it's one of the best in Solvang so we've been looking forward to come. The pastries and cookies are really good no doubt about it. However the staff was arrogant. I said that because every time I asked question she gives me that "look" and replied... More

This was our first stop in a walking exploration of Solvang. My wife and I browsed around and tried a few free samples. We then left and came back about 2 hours later and decided to try buy some of the pastries we sampled earlier. We had already tried a few other bakeries (rated higher than this on TA) but... More
