The best advice I can offer for Paula's Pancake House is to get there early or be prepared to wait for a table. Our estimated wait time of 15-20 minutes ended up being more like 30. The danish pancakes and sausage were great.

When I looked restaurants up for Solvang Paula's was listed as having gluten free options. They do NOT! Even the wait staff was shocked that that was in their reviews. It was extremely crowded and loud so we got up and left.
