Neither of us enjoyed the breakfast. -We each ordered 2 scrambled eggs and received a plate of overcooked eggs which did not appear to be 2 eggs' worth on either plate -Aebleskivers were dense and dry (If this is how they're supposed...

Ate lunch here in early September 2016. Ordered a "Danish" plate of some kind that really wasn't very good. It contained four different things on some really dry thin pumpernickel bread that was horrible. Toppings were things like ham, cheese, and some very vinegary red cabbage. Everyone else's food looked way better -- eggs, burgers, etc. I would not eat... More

I LOVE Aebleskiver's, and Arne's has been here for years. You can watch them make the aebleskiver's in the window while you wait. They taste a little like waffles, but lighter. Served with raspberry syrup and icre cream if you want. They also sell aebleskiver pans and mix if you want to try it at home! 3 aebleskivers were $3.95,... More

This town is just impossibly cute with all the half timbered buildings and tons of adorable little places to eat. We went to the Solvang Restaurant to have the aebelskiivers we had heard so much about and they didn't disappoint. Kind of like beignets but with a dab of raspberry jam on top, they were a wonderful and unusual dessert.... More

For those on the go, the Solvang restaurant has window service, where one may purchase aebelskiivers to go on the sidewalk. Locals also appreciate breakfast and lunch offerings, which... More

American and Danish specialties. Enjoyed great split pea soup and wonderful salads, and a yummy pastrami sandwich. And, of course, the fabulous ableskiver Danish pancakes in syrup and powdered sugar for dessert. A real treat and a favorite in Solvang!

If you have been told to find the delectable delight known as "abelskiver", sprinkled with powder sugar, with a spot of raspberry preserves to rocket you to heavenly heights, then you are at the right place!
