We stopped in for a quick Danish dessert to enjoy while we walked around the city. It s a quaint little place, and you will pay for the experience.

“Yum!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 22, 2013

Pastries were yummy and they had plenty to choose from. Puff pastry is soft and flavorful. The eclairs were wonderful too.

Another great Bakery in Solvang. One of the more popular ones in town but a great place to stop and have a bite!

“Danish waffles were lovely”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 21, 2013

Strangely, all but one of the bakeries in town (yes, we visited them all) seemed to have the exact same items in their cases...as if they came from one central bakery.

The Danish waffles were delightful though!

“Fabulous pastries”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 14, 2013

Don't go in too hungry, since all the pastries look wonderful. I had an excellent cinnamon roll which was even better than it looked. I've never had anything like the pistachio / almond bar - crunchy, creamy and tasting very strongly of pistachio - wonderful! On the other hand, this was the second place in Solvang where I found the coffee to be dreadfully weak. Maybe it's a danish thing? Regardless - if you're into coffee, be very wary.
