Had breakfast here, the food was fresh, hearty, and coffee was fresh and hot. It was refreshing to finally have decent fare in a town that is very "touristy".

If your not starving and can stand the wait then this is a place to have breakfast. No matter what you choose you won't be disappointed. We have a family of 6 and everyone wants something different. The pancakes and waffles are the way to go, but the sausages are delicious as are the eggs.

Having been to Paula's Pancake House four times in the last 18 months, we have to say this is just well-made, but rather expensive DINER FOOD. Location does NOT make food better! Yes, you can get some Danish sausage (very mild, boiled) and get some fun toppings on your this or that, BUT I think a lot of people get overly enamored with the location (RIGHT ON THE MAIN ROAD) and the very sweet, nice gals who wear nice colorful Scandinavia-inspired uniforms. The coffee is just bad and weak. The food, either lunch or breakfast, is short-order cooked DINER FOOD-AND RATHER EXPENSIVE diner food. Sorry, but there are much better meals just a couple/few blocks away AND yes, they are just as expensive BUT they taste better and are much more authentic to Denmark or Norway or wherever. The service is great. Servers are very nice and attentive. BUT after four mediocre meals, we are not going back next time we are in lovely Solvang. Just go a little further down the street and over a block or two and we'll have better food.

We were walking down the street Sunday morning and found this place for breakfast. It turned out to be an excellent breakfast place and good prices with a really good atmosphere. All the staff was very friendly and helpful. The decor Reminded me of a cabin in the mountains.

These pancakes were fantastic. Turkey sausage was a little overdone. Coffee good. My friend had a waffle and said it was great. There were flies buzzing around, which was a little odd. I believe I read that in another review? The along-withs (butter, syrup) were a little on the stingy side and we asked for more of both, which was served promptly. The place was busy and it was ranked #1 breakfast place in town on Yelp. Fix the fly problem and it's good to go!
