Really good version of eggs benedict; fine waffles; nice cappuccino on a cool day. Right in the middle of town center.

Find the absolute best pastries in town at Mortensen's. They have quite a wide selection and everything I've tried tasted absolutely fresh and flaky.

We have gone to this bakery twice now and I would say that they do have some very good pastries, but some are pretty mediocre. The almond croissant had almost no filling, and I would stay away from any of the pastries (like the danishes) which have a lot of dough as their base and just a little filling. If... More

I bought pastries here a couple of years ago (we go every year) and came out with a small box of which we paid $25! I found groceries stores in the area that sell good Danish pastries for far less, plus some hotels include pastries with their breakfast. Also, there are little shops/ restaurants that offer pastries just look around.

We stopped by for an afternoon treat and enjoyed a pistachio and a rasberry dessert of some sort. They were amazing. Should have purchased more for home but will be coming back for more for sure.

This place with Danish ancestry has good traditional bakery products. Unfortunately presentation and service is not following the same standard. Strip lights by the cashier does not contribute to the mood. I may be picky, coming from a culture of cafés, but any run-of-the-mill café in Stockholm would outdo Morgensen in ambiance. So, expect good pastry and coffee, but you... More

Always fresh, delicious and very appetizing! Great choices of pastry with places to sit both inside and out to enjoy a beverage with your pastry. Family owned with great service.

Great place to stop for a danish and coffee. Excellent choice of bakery with good seating. It's in the village. We have stopped many times and have never been disappointed.

Great bakery with lots of goodies! The lines move pretty fast. You can purchase to eat in, or take out. My favorite was the Apple Strip. So good we bought several!
