If your day needs a Danish, Solvang offers many choices - but we like Mortensen's. The pastries are excellent as breakfast or dessert, and the variety has appeal to every taste.

Went to breakfast here. They have an amazing selection of baked goods and breakfast items. Many Danish items, but also many others. A local favorite, which says a lot. Will go there again. Service is friendly and efficient, though sometimes very busy. Worth the wait.

Is there a winner between the two best Danish Bakeries? No, both are excellent and the ones we tried at Mortensen's were just yummy delights we enjoyed sitting on the bench in the sun outside. A must do in Solvang

Everything is fresh and delicious, very friendly staff and it’s a family-owned traditional Danish bakery. Recommend getting there early for the best selection of the most incredibly delicious pastries you’ll ever have. We’ve tried the other bakeries in Solvang and they don’t even come close...More

Wife got a danish and I got a Pistachio dessert. Danish was dry and pistachio thingy was plan not good. They have a lot of stuff to choose from but we got some bad items. Would not stop here again.

A little disappointed in my apple turnover and husband's cheese filled danish. They were good but nothing out of the ordinary. The wait staff were nice and helpful but hard to tell which items are actually made there or elsewhere.

Great pastries to have here - delicious cream puffs! They have buckets of Danish cookies for purchase, as well. Located in the center of this Danish strip of shops.

If you want freshly baked pastries then walk over to Mortensen's. Even waiting in line makes your mouth water from the deliciously sweet smelling of all the variety of baked goods. Once it's your turn to decide you almost want to purchase all of the...More
