The Eclair and Napoleon we purchased were dry and the "crusts" were so hard you had to cut them with a knife, and it was even difficult to do that!!! This is a place to just keep walking past...no need to stop.

For being all the way out in Solvang this place is a surprise in their quality but also a surprise in how expensive even their smallest pastries are. Lines can get long so be prepared.

Try the pastries! The Kringle is amazing and not to be missed. The staff is very friendly, helpful and professional.

I enjoy going here getting something from the bakery and some coffee, it can be crowded on the weekends but worth the wait.

Very good coffee and huge choice of pastries. I had to take couple of different ones, no way one would justify it. All of them were great, even day later.

Fun, easy location with lots of seating for afternoon breaks or morning repasts. We enjoyed the coffee as well.

I would go Olsons - or even better - go to Copenhagen Bakery in Culver City.. These guys lost the real Danish feeling for Weinerbrød.

We've tried most of them, and Mortensen's has a great selection, but the main thing to talk about here is the pastry itself. Shattery, buttery, just about the perfect pastry every time. Plan to spend a few minutes just looking at the selection, and if...More
