I personally wanted to sample everything lol. Restrained myself and had an almond tart. I was in heaven!!! It was the best part of a bear claw....you know the almond paste that gets folded into the bear claw?? Imagine having that in a lil tart with white chocolate on top. Hubby had the traditional, Danish town, Danish bakery....so he ordered a Danish lol. He said it was not spectacular but good. The coffee was not as good as at Paula's but it help wash down my tart.

I was waiting in line for Paula's pancake house and looked in this bakery. Everything looked good, but love French macaroons so I had to get some. Very good macaroons, moist, jelly filled or cream. I think the price was $2.25 each.

The real deal. Danish at a Danish bakery.
Get there before the tour buses do.
Go with will power or you'll eat too much!

Olsen's was the most popular among locals. They clearly have the most variety of pastry, by far. They ship even hard to pack items such as kransekage/kransekakke anywhere, even to Houston. The pastry is very good. The staff is not as friendly, but is okay. Their location is awesome. It is easy to sit down and have coffee too. A trip to Solvang is really not complete without a visit to Olsen's. Though I prefer Birkholms, I bought a box of pastry here, of many different items, and they were all good to exceptionally excellent. They do make the product on premises. Parking is difficult, but still worth the visit.

My bear claw was just excellent so I had to get another for the next morning. Wife's custard Danish was very good too. Good coffee, friendly service.
