Cozy in garden area in nook of Solvang. Dine in or outside tables. Lots of flowers and art around. Some unusual coffee concoctions here! Highly recommended from other locals in town.

If you love gelato and Nutella, you definitely must try their nutellisima! Best hazelnut gelato I've ever had! The place is very cozy and eclectically decorated. Definitely a gem in Solvang!
