“Amazing Danish Pancakes”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 17, 2014

Drive a few miles out of Solvang and get yourself to Ellen's Danish Pancake House. The Danish-style pancakes are a cross between a crepe & a pancake. If the fresh strawberries & whipped cream pancakes are available = do not even look at the rest of the menu = ORDER IT. You will never be happier and your taste buds will thank you.

“Best Danish Pancakes Ever!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 13, 2014

If you want to wrap your taste buds around authentic Danish pancakes, look no further than Ellen's Danish Pancake House! Located close to the Danish town of Solvang, Ellen's is within easy walking distance of several nice hotels and the Flying Flags RV Park.

The portions are huge. The Danish-style pancakes have to be seen - and tasted - to be believed. The pancake is so large that even when folded in half it still hangs over the edge of the plate! Light and seasoned gently using appropriate Scandinavian spices, these pancakes are authentic and delicious. You can even get hem made to order: cooked easy or crispy!!

If pancakes are not what your palate needs, never fear; there are a number of savory egg dishes and other creative breakfast items to choose from. Served with care in a small town environment, try Ellen's to have a fantastic breakfast experience.

“Wonderful Breakfast”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 10, 2014

This is a quaint "Coffee Shop" type restaurant, which has outstanding food. The Danish Pancakes were excellent. Danish Sausages were an extra surprise in taste. If you don't want to deal with the lines at the restaurants in Solvang, you can not go wrong here.

“Great for breakfast & lunch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 10, 2014

This place is all about big portions and good food. Service can be spotty, a couple of the girls are consistently great. Food is always good. This is stick to your ribs stuff, nothing fancy. At breakfast get the home fries and the biscuits, jam is home made and very good. A bit pricy for breakfast and lunch, but you will not leave hungry. At lunch, lots of daily specials. Their club sandwiches are legendary and big enough for two, I really like this place and go often, if going for breakfast on weekend, call ahead! Lines are the norm here at breakfast. This is the best breakfast in the valley

“A Very Fine Experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 6, 2014

While staying in Solvang, we decided to try Ellen's based on the TripAdvisor recommendations. We were not disappointed as the food was hot and yummy and really well priced. A great value. We went there for dinner and tried two of their specials on the chalkboard. The trout was tasty and fresh and the pork roast was tender and flavorful. The portions of everything were more than generous including the sides. Also dessert and salad were included with the meal. We were stuffed and satisfied by the end of the meal. The folks serving and working at the restaurant were great. They were polite and efficient and had a great sense of humor. We had a great time as did other customers. We were treated like regulars. The decor was like a diner and very casual. We felt very much at home. We will come back when we visit in the area again. Maybe we'll try the breakfast as well!
