The breakfast sounded like it would be great, but we found it disappointing. After waiting for 45 mins for the food to come out (you order at a counter first), we all found it fairly average at best. My sausage was burned, the french toast was really more like plain bread, and the biscuits were greasy. Given the price we... More

We ate at Succulent Cafe twice while in town for about 24 hours. One for lunch: fries are amazing, yummy sandwich selection, and HUGE salads! We went back in the morning for breakfast and all ordered the breakfast platter... lots of food and LOVED the biscuits. Really great coffee to... highly recommend!

We went here for a small dinner. There were three of us and we had the cheese tray with wine "awesome". We then had the lamb bugger and one other appetizer. The whole meal was fantastic and I would definitely recommend it.

We enjoyed succulent so much that we kept coming back. The food is delicious and the service is excellent. There were three of us and between us we tried several dishes, all of them were great. We particularly enjoyed the relish plate, soups, burgers, and steaks. I highly recommend if you're in the area.

Solvang is also known as Little Denmark, a small "city" on the mountain. It is a tourist spot. When you get here, as if you are in Europe. I love the food provided at Succulent, 1555-57 Mission Drive, espescially Succulent Eggs Benedict, Sourbon Vanilla French Toast, and Fired Chicken & Gravy Biscuit.

The biscuits and jam were a pleasant surprise! Being from the southern part of the United States I did not expect fried chicken and mac and cheese to be this stellar. Much to my surprise the fried chicken was up to par. They were very accommodating to our individual needs vegetarian, gluten free and no spices. My husband had the... More

We had spent the day shopping in Solvang and we were looking for a little something to hold us over until dinner. I could smell the BBQ so we walked across the street and we split a BBQ Pulled Pork Sandwich. This has been one of the best Pulled Pork sandwiches I/We've had. The BBQ sauce was not your typical...

Bacon wrapped pork tenderloin with potato cake, creamed spinach, sautéed onions and pork jus was awesom
