Sad to report we were not impressed by the baked goods or coffee. The items we purchased were over priced and taste was average at best. We could most likely find tastier goods for a lesser price at the grocery store.

We stopped in one morning and we were delighted to find gluten free goodies. All were excellent. The pastries and bread are made on premises and the staff is very knowledgeable. It's a large place with seating.

Impossible to pass through Solvang without a stop at Mortensen's. Even though we had already eaten we grabbed a coffee and one raspberry Danish before heading out. Flaky and delicious even late in the day! A must stop for sure!

We tried a wide variety of the pastries at this bakery. Every single item was delicious. The young women waiting on customers were friendly and helpful. Wish I could go back soon, especially for the almond pastries

If you are like me and enjoy your morning coffee with a moist, buttery, fruit filled danish, this is a must stop for you. Their danishes are everything you would want to go along with a great cup of coffee. Lemon filled are my favorite....More
