We stopped for lunch. Sandwiches were giant and delicious. I had soup and sandwich and could not eat it all because it was so much food. I will share with my husband if I get to Solvang again.

Thank you for the 4 Star review. However Olsen's Danish Village Bakery does not serve sandwiches or soup you may have gotten us mixed up with another bakery. Have a great Holiday Season.
