We decided to stop in and try breakfast. What a lovely surprise! Waitresses are dressed in cultural Dutch dresses and friendly. The coffee was awesome and so was the food. My husband ordered the French toast and he said they were the BEST he ever...More

We ate at the counter so our wait time was just a couple of minutes. Our breakfast was very good and our server was friendly and provided excellent service. We plan on going again tomorrow before we leave town.

Had an excellent breakfast with excellent service! Danish pancakes with apple cinnamon topping were delicious and we enjoyed the omelettes too. Highly recommended this classic Solvang restaurant, get there early to beat the crowds!

Great spot for breakfast in walking distance of our hotel. The fresh strawberries were delicious. Try the Danish pancakes. I didn’t like their special “house” sausage but loved the regular breakfast sausage (had a little spice) Very busy, bring a newspaper.
