their Danish pastries and cookies are authentic and absolutely wonderful. some have commented about the decor but I could care less as the bakery offerings are wonderful. I think the real opportunity for them is expanding their beverage offering by offering pints of milk, hot...More

We had not been here in over 30 years, and they did not disappoint. the Cookies were wonderful, as well as the Bear Claw. We bought several buckets of their cookies to take back to friends. A great place.

Every time we visit Solvang we stop by Mortensen's Danish Bakery. The place itself is somewhat unassuming, but the selection of pastries and desserts is superb. My wife especially likes the Sarah Bernhardts, while my favorite are the eclairs.

We visit this bakery several times a year when we come to Santa Barbara and up to now, I would always have given it five stars because the service was good and the Danish pastries were the best I have ever eaten. However, today's visit...More

All I can say is the delightful smell of fresh baked goodies was too tempting to pass up! The selection is wide and varied, and I found the decision making process very difficult. The latte I ordered was also very good.
