Sit on the terrace and enjoy beautiful Solvang weather. Order at the counter and they'll bring breakfast to you. Eggs are scrambled or poached. Don't ask for any other way. Sausage patties are homemade, bacon is served crisp and the biscuits are outstanding. Quick service...More

Don’t leave Solvang without a meal at the Succulent Cafe! Great staff, great food, great location. We had the hot pastrami sandwich and the tuna melt which topped the list of our favorites.

My friend and I really enjoyed happy hour here. Drinks were delicious and so was the food. I can particularly recommend the lavender lemonade and apple cinnamon mimosa... just the right amount of sweetness. It's nice to do some wine tasting down the street ,...More

We had the meatloaf, which was fine, but perhaps a bit too much loaf and less meat. Personally, I was a bit turned off by the attitude of the seater girl, who just oozed a bit of a "don't care" attitude.

You won't be disappointed with the food or the service. We have been in Solvang every year for the past 28 years, so we have had dinner at many locations. Succulent was the best dinner (by far) that we've ever had in Solvang. Absolutely delicious!!!...More

I had a good idea of what the dinner would be like after having a complimentary biscuit. It was doughy, undercooked yet somehow crunchy. I had the fried chicken with collards & Mac & cheese. Mac & cheese was bland. Collards were really good. The...More

Succulent has a nice casual atmosphere with reasonably priced food (for a tourist town, that is). The Crispy Brussels sprouts (with bacon, of course) topped with a nice balsamic glaze were shockingly excellent. Turns out they’re the most popular starter. Roasted Beet Salad was good...More
