Breakfast-Lunch-Dinner... It's all good and the service is friendly. Buffet style danish cuisine... Eat as much as you want but don't waste. Open year-round

Decent choices for simple fare with a chance to try some decent tasting Danish dishes. Was surprised by the curry mayo cauliflower, was great texture and delicious. The sliced cold meatballs and pate were also quite good. The spaghetti however looked disgusting and the hot meatballs in gravy was almost all gravy with small and few meatballs with no real...

Town was packed with tourists and long waits for most places. This offered quick seating and good danish food. Service was good.

We wanted to try some typical Danish dishes so selected this restaurant. It took quite a long time to just get three glasses of water; our salads arrived long before the water. Some menu items like the split pea soup were already gone by the time we ordered which is a bit odd since it was only 5:30 pm. There... More

We were looking for a light lunch amid all the hearty offerings in Solvang. This was just the place. The open faced sandwiches, cold or hot, were the perfect size and the food was good. I recommend the pork with red cabbage on the wonderful pumpernickle!

The website indicates that you can get breakfast here; you cannot. They were closed this morning at 8:15, and while they post lunch and dinner menus, there is no breakfast.

This restaurant has a great menu with a wide range of American and Danish dishes, along with a nice smorgasbord selection for lunch. The site is historical in the town and is near many other interesting shops. The wife and I both enjoyed the smorgasbord with cheeses, breads, pickled herring, salads, cookies and other treats. A great place to experience... More
