“Wonderful Breakfast -- And, no waiting”
Reviewed December 14, 2012

We had planned on going to Paula's Pancake House on a Sunday based on all the great reviews. When we arrived there was a wait of at least 45 min. Not for us! We researched and found that The Greenhouse Cafe was open and close by. How fortunate for us Paula's had a long wait! We were some of the first ones in, so not crowded at all. It is a family-run restaurant and I think we were served by some of the young adults -- very nice people. Menu for breakfast is extensive and includes a number of items that came from the wife's mother (or grandmother?)-- we tried several things we have never had before. All delicious. The facility was actual greenhouse and is very cute; there's also outdoor seating and it's all right in the middle of Solvang. If you're in the area -- GO HERE!

“Delightful”
Reviewed December 3, 2012

This was a spur of the minute side trip that proved wonderful. Solvang is a delightful city to visit in California and this restaurant was a wonderful find. The food was delicious and the wait staff was friendly and efficient. I highly recommend this as a place to eat lunch.

“Cute Little Cafe”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

We came here with a party of 6 for breakfast and were seated in their little outdoor section. The weather was perfect in October, so it made for a nice outdoor atmosphere. The food was good. We all ordered an omelet and they even allowed us to split one and served it on 2 separate plates. When it was brought out from the kitchen, it looked like 2 complete meals. The service was good and friendly. I would return here and probably ask to sit outdoors again.

“Enjoyed the outdoor seating, views, and local food.”
Reviewed October 28, 2012 via mobile

A worthwhile spot. Enjoy the local bottled beer, which is reasonably priced. Open faced sandwich was good.

“Very cute on a Sunday morning”
Reviewed October 28, 2012 via mobile

Limited outdoor seating. Worth it to sit outside. Sunday bright and cool mornings in October make a nice experience.

We enjoyed their mocha.

One of the few places that are open very early in the morning.
