I really have to give these folks five stars, service was amazing, Tyler, our waitress was thoughtful, attentive. I had an omelet, lobster, gruyere cheese and avocado, delicious, hash browns were wonderful, not greasy, more baked crisp than fried, the ambiance was great, very open and light, seating comfortable, the espresso was tops... And what was hilarious was that on... More

We went there for breakfast and the food is wonderful. We sat outside which was lovely. Family and friends joined us at separate times and the service continued to be excellent!

We went to Greenhouse for an early lunch and sat outside since the day was warm. We had open face sandwich scandinavian style that was ok. You can get beer or wine. They also have a couple of soups and salads. Next to the restaurant you have Mortesen´s Danich Bakery where you can have danish pastries and good coffee for... More

Indoor inside a greenhouse or outside on a lovely patio. We chose outside with the sound of the water fountain on a perfectly lovely day in August. Terrific service and food. Wonderful lobster wrap sandwich on a tomato tortilla (have never seen this before on a menu!), excellent caprese salad and excellent split pea soup with ham. We will definitely... More

Adorable little spot in Solvang. Nice outdoor patio. Food was quite good for breakfast, and the service was spot-on. This place was a rare find, since most of the restaurants in Solvang were very touristy with bad food. We would definitely go back here again.

What a great little café! My family and I had breakfast here last week. I greatly appreciate that this is a dog-friendly restaurant. Because of our dog, we sat outside in the side patio. Our waiter, Drew, was such a sweet guy. The food was delicious and more than plentiful for our first meal of the day. I highly recommend... More

If the weather is nice, and you want to eat outside under an umbrella, this is a good stop right in town. The salad was good, but would've been better with the fresh tomatoes that are locally grown. Watching the many tourists walk by on this busy sidestreet was a nice break in our walk around the town.

We had two meals -- a breakfast and a lunch -- during a recent visit to Solvang. The restaurant is in a great location, a block south of Highway 246 in the center of Solvang. The outdoor patio is a good spot, with less traffic noise than at the restaurants with outdoor dining located on the Highway. The breakfasts were... More

Friendly servers made eating alone enjoyable! Having decided to forego the free continental breakfast at simple but quality food
