We went here after lunch. The sweets were excellent and they all were very appealing. There were 6 of us and each selected 1 or 2 items. They were boxed for us to take out.

Thank you for the 5 Star review and your patronage. TravelsOK good name!............Just a little history about us. Bent and Susy Olsen moved to Solvang in 1970 from Denmark where the family has a four generational history of baking. Many of the recipes they use today were created by Bent's Great, Great, Great Grandfather so long ago. Today they use those recipes, with the finest ingredients that are blended and baked in small batches by hand to ensure Olsen's "Authentic Danish Quality" Do have a great day.

Lovely cafe/bakery in a great, if slightly surreal, little Danish/Californian town.
If you’re in the area don’t pass up on the opportunity of visiting Solvang. It’s certainly different, but in the best possible way, and here at the bottom of the beautiful Santa Ynez Valley you’ll find the finest selection of pastries we’ve seen outside Northern Europe.

Thank MandM29

Thank you for the 5 Star review and your patronage. Just a little history....Bent and Susy Olsen did move to Solvang in 1970 from Denmark and brought with them the recipes that Bent's Great, Great, Great Grandfather created so long ago. Today they use those Danish recipes, the finest ingredients that are blended and baked by hand and in small batches to ensure "Authentic Danish Pastries" in the "Danish Village of Solvang" which was established in 1911 by Danish American's in Solvang, California. Do have a great day!

The hotel we stayed in offered us a voucher for breakfast at Olsen's. The place was certainly busy (always a good sign). We were served promptly being offered a range of pastries which sadly did not include a GF option. I later returned to buy something that I could eat whilst my partner devoured the other two pastries with relish. The coffee was black filtered and we were offered a second cup if we wanted it.

Thank you for the 4 Star review and your patronage. Yes! we are a traditional Danish bakery. Bent and Susy moved to Solvang in 1970 from Denmark and brought with them the recipes that are still used today. Many of the recipes were created over 4 generations ago in Denmark and to ensure the Danish quality....... Olsen's blends and bakes in small batches by hand using only the best ingredients available to bake an "Authentic Danish" pastry. Do have a GREAT day and travel safe.

They sure look delicious in the case. Lots to choose from. We tired a few different pastries. They were good, but I guess I was expecting "more". Not too crowded, so didn't have to wait too long to be served. Was worth trying and would recommend.
