Mortensen's offers very sweet pastry. Friendly staff and relaxing environment. Custard strip is their most popular item. So big! Takes up to 4-5 people to finish. They have outdoor seatings but most of time occupied. Besides sweet bakery, it offers coffee too.

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.

Solvang has as many bakeries as wine tasting rooms. I arrived early in the morning with the smell of fresh baking in the air. Beautiful strudels. The Apple turnover I had was flaky, fresh and with a delicious apple flavor ... not too sticky sweet.

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!
