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.

|Olsen’s Bakery’s baked goods|
|Meringue kisses and Danish cookies, also from Olsen’s.|
|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 Hot Dog with fried onions, cucumber salad.|
|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!
