The awesome bakery smell drew us in and we tried the flaky and melting in mouth pastires. I believe it was cream cheese Danish, a rasberry macaroon bar and a berry boats we tried. Also the box of danish cookies on way back was joy to senses.

We had not been to Solvang in 20 years. Tons of people took away the quaintness and the bakery it was a herd of cattle. We got our pastries (delicious) and got back on the freeway heading home.

When in Denmark---er, Solvang, one must eat danish, right? So we stopped into Mortensen's for a couple of snacks---Cherry Danish was the big winner! So many other treats to choose from though that I will definitely have to stop back!

I got the traditional Danish raspberry pastry and some coffee. The Danish was fresh and very good, but the coffee was pretty mediocre.

Coming to Solvang the first stop has to be coffee and a Danish. With so many good reviews we made a beeline for mortensens. Adorable little place with a dazzling array of pastries.

This bakery is very good - my second favorite here in Solvang, and that says a lot because there are quite a few to choose from. The staff is very efficient and works well to take care of all the customers in a timely manner. Great choices in cookies and pastries. I got an apple danish which was very tasty.... More
