This bakery lured us in by the shear smell of the baked goods, what a delight. I think if I could have I would have purchased one of everything in the shop. Nice staff and you will indulge!

Danish bakeries abound in Solvang and this one did not disappoint! the pastry - so flaky - surrounding different fillings for every taste. We recommend the Danish Waffles!

If your day needs a Danish, Solvang offers many choices - but we like Mortensen's. The pastries are excellent as breakfast or dessert, and the variety has appeal to every taste.

Went to breakfast here. They have an amazing selection of baked goods and breakfast items. Many Danish items, but also many others. A local favorite, which says a lot. Will go there again. Service is friendly and efficient, though sometimes very busy. Worth the wait.

Is there a winner between the two best Danish Bakeries? No, both are excellent and the ones we tried at Mortensen's were just yummy delights we enjoyed sitting on the bench in the sun outside. A must do in Solvang

Everything is fresh and delicious, very friendly staff and it’s a family-owned traditional Danish bakery. Recommend getting there early for the best selection of the most incredibly delicious pastries you’ll ever have. We’ve tried the other bakeries in Solvang and they don’t even come close...More
