We stopped for cookies, but stayed for tea and pastry. Great selection! It was impossible to select just one thing. That ended up our dinner and we even had to take some home. Very nice friendly staff.More

I went both days this past weekend and got some danish for breakfast. The bakery is always busy even at the earliest hours, that should give you an idea how good it is. A must stop when in Solvang.
