“Average experience...Aebleskivers good”
Reviewed July 18, 2011

Overall this is a really average place...atmosphere (east coast diner-like) is average, service is average (at best) and food is average. The Aebleskivers are good (very sweet), but it was good to try the 'local fare' We didn't stay in Solvang because it is so touristy (chose Santa Ynez instead, thankfully) and this restaurant goes along the 'touristy' lines of the tour. Its an ok place for a light lunch and try the aebleskivers.

“Aebleskivers...pillows of love!”
Reviewed May 29, 2011

I saw this restaurant on trip advisor and wanted to try the aebleskivers. We just wanted something light for the road so we ordered the sausage sampler to share and an order of aebleskivers each. The sausages were delicious, the potato salad was good, and we loved the Danish mustard. Let me tell you....the aebleskivers are out of this world. Like a pancake, like a donut...but a food all on its own. It's a pillow of love sprinkled with confectioner's sugar and jam. Yum...I am sorry we can't review any of their other food; but it's worth it to go just for them. Diner-like atmosphere. Oh,,,the iced tea was very good as well which doesn't happen very often at restaurants.

“The aebleskivers earned them an extra star!”
Reviewed August 6, 2010

The first thing you need to do is adjust your culinary expectations to diner standards. The next thing...gorge on aebleskivers! What is an aebleskiver, you ask? Well, it's sort of a doughnut, but it's not. It's sort of a pancake, but it's not. It's sort of like cake, but it's not. It IS a delectable Danish delight! (Warning: The sugar high will last about 2 hours...make sure you're near another eatery when you crash.)

I dined here about four times on my recent visit to Solvang. I was hanging with locals who come here ("The Office") daily, so I got red carpet service. The interior decor is cute Danish diner-esque.

“Try the aebleskivers”
Reviewed July 13, 2010

We went at breakfast time on a Saturday morning and it was packed by 9:00AM. Service was quick, but don't expect special attention with this crowd. The aebleskivers are good here and a must try in Solvang. A casual diner feel inside and family friendly. There is a pick up window in the front if you want the aebleskivers without the crowd.
