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

Did not know what to expect here. But our sandwich was very good, and the pasta salad was excellent. We were there around 3:00 pm and had the whole place to ourselves. Nice large windows to watch the goings on in town

Had truffle fries for starter (real good) and pizza for main. The veggie pizza was good and thin. Had loads of greens and cheese. Good flava. Good service. Quick service and centrally located.

We shared a relish tray, the 4x4 charcuterie tray, and the brussels sprouts. The relish tray, while nice to see so many vegetables, was mainly fresh vegetables when we were hoping for more pickles, but was still quite good. The charcuterie was 4 kinds of...More

Very good service with great food. We tried spicy ham and fried chicken. They both were good. Ice cream with bacon was good too but you can taste the salt.

Hello, I just spoke with our chef and for breakfast we don't have vegan options besides the fruit. Come to think of it, we've never been asked! But now, you've posed a challenge and we will definitely look into adding some... More
