What-to-Eat; Where-to-eat in Solvang

Just as popular as the Danish architecture and windmills, are the Danish pastries you find in Solvang. My visit to this small town in Central California turned out to also be a window into Danish food, too.

 The Danish pastries are one of the attractions of this destination. While we were in Solvang we stepped into Mortensen’s Bakery and Olsen’s Bakery and Coffee Shop for some Danish deliciousness.

Kransekage ( a traditional Danish cake) we got to taste at the Hans Christian Andersen museum.
I later saw them at Olsen’s Bakery too.

While we were there, we also made sure to get a taste some other culinary specialties of the Danes. When we lunched at ‘Solvang Restaurant’ we picked out these things from their menu:

Danish sausage and Danish Meatball with Rødkål (red cabbage, Danish style).

Where (else) to eat in Solvang 

Paula’s Pancake House in Solvang is another attraction in the town. It’s among the top of the top places to eat in this Danish Village. We couldn’t leave there without checking it out and so just before we said farvel to Solvang, we had breakfast at Paula’s. And weren’t they the most delectable pancakes!

    The eating is really good there. When we were there, we wanted to try the ostrich burger and buy ostrich eggs, but the farm was closed that day.

      Oh yes it is, I swear. 😉

      I should visit Ostrichland sometime. Ostrich burger — I will keep that in mind for next time. I hear they also sell art-on-ostrich eggshells. I would love to pick up some of that.

    People tend to ask me why I like Solvang so much (and the entire Santa Ynez Valley). I think your post answers the question. Last time, I had the most delicious pancakes. Can't wait to go back.

      The food in Solvang was exceptional! And I didn't get to have aebleskiver. What a shame right? 🙂 I was at one of the places that was famous for the delicacy; but was so packed after lunch that I couldn't even think about picking some up for later.

      I should go back just for the aebleskiver. 🙂
      Think of me when you have them again, Ruth. 🙂

    Do they have no-egg options? Difficult to get your eyes off them otherwise ☺️
