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

Solvang used to be a place of many bakeries. Now there are only a few left. Every time we visit Solvang we purchase our breakfast pastries at the Solvang Bakery, a cute little bakery with a very warm and friendly atmosphere.

As you're probably aware, there is no shortage of bakeries in Solvang. This was the first of 3 we tried and the first of hundreds of sugar cookies we had there. Very nice, clean tourist location with delicious baked treats.
