Which bakery do I choose? It seemed like there was a bakery on every corner but we chose this one as it had delicious cookies! Had oatmeal raisin but they also had pecans and coconut in them too. Very delicious.

Got the "walk-up" sampler of three aebelskiver (Danish pancakes) with jam for $3.85. Nicely cooked and tasty. Cannot comment on the rest of their menu.

I love their scones the best. We tried a bear claw and cinnamon roll with apples, both were also excellent. Cute chairs to sit on outside and enjoy the day.

While strolling on Alisal road we stopped by this Bakery for coffee but got attracted to the wonderful range of baked goods.

This is a lovely little bakery with every delicious, buttery, sweet ,yummy pastry that you would expect to find in a faux Danish town. You can have a coffee and some pastry there or to go but don't forget some buckets of butter cookies to bring back to friends and family!

We decided to stop in here to get some pastries for the road. I got the Danish waffle with cream and rasberry inside and it was delicious! The cream tastes like buttercream and was sweet. We also got different flavored macarons. They were good, but we've had better. The ladies inside were super friendly and helpful and asked us where... More

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,...
