I had the most wonderful chocolate cream on a cookie covered with chocolate -- oh, so delicious. My husband enjoyed his chocolate covered Macaroon. Don't think of your diet when you walk in here, just enjoy!

Your typical tourist-oriented bakery with lots of sweets. Prices are a little higher accordingly. I am not a big fan of fudge but they were pretty tasty.

We parked in the lot behind and found ourselves walking through here to get the village. Of course we returned to get some tasty treats and a few lattes to continue on.

We tried multiple bakeries on our visit to Solvang. This one had by far the most tender pastry and the cookies were so wonderful. The owl eye cookies were soft and buttery. Will go back!! Yum!!!

We had coffee and croissants here, our traditional breakfast when travelling. The coffee was okay, but the croissant was too heavy and had insufficient butter. I guess that we shouldn't expect French baking from a Danish shop!

Ate tea in the afternoon with grandchildren. Nice pastries. Average surroundings.plenty pastry shops in solving. This one some distance from our hotel. Paula's pancakes serves good breakfast but always had long lines. Shows how good it is!
