Can't go wrong at this bakery. Love the hard rolls with butter. And danishes were really good too, sweet but not overdone. Free refills on coffee when you eat there.

We popped in because several locals recommended this as one of the best. By the time we left we had a lot more bags than we planned on. Everything we selected was fresh and tasty!

As we ambled across the little town of Solvang, we had visited this bakery in our earlier visit to Solvang and tasted their baked goods, especially the coconut macaroons!! very delicious. This visit, we went there specially to buy the coconut macaroon, which come in plain vanilla flavor and half chocolate covered. A bit pricy but worth every penny..

YOU have to stop here!!!! It was so hard to pick something because everything looked so good. We left spending over 30 dollars just because we could not decide. The cinnamon crisp was amazing. The bucket of cookies are too.

While in Solvang, stop in and have some pastries at Olsens'. They are the best in town. The people are so friendly and greet you warmly when you walk in the door. I had the Kringle and it's scrumptious. Flaky and sweet and yummy. All the pastries look wonderful.
