The food was average. Personnel were really awesome though. It was a strange set up in seating -- you start almost as a take out guest but then go seat yourselves in a separate area that you really can't see before you decide to dine (if you don't know what you're looking at - and we didn't). We would go... More

We have been to Succulent Cafe twice and enjoyed it emencely both times. They have an excellent chaurterie board with meats, cheeses, and pickled accutrements. They have a lovely outdoor patio and well designed interior. Solvang isn't just for Seniors anymore.

We randomly stopped at Succulent Cafe for lunch, (without reading reviews as we usually do), and we're so glad we did! There's a charming patio you can sit outside with your dog, and they brought a bowl of ice water for my dog which he very much appreciated. I thought that was really nice. Our sandwiches were tasty and the... More

I had heard of this restaurant before, but hadn't had the opportunity to go there -until tonight. It was a last minute choice,but my husband and I do like charcuterie and were intrigued by a restaurant that says they make their own. We ordered off the starters side of the menu for the most part. My son was with us... More

I visited with a friend on a Monday. The place was fairly busy but we were seated immediately. Overall the food was very good yet not exceptional. While I wouldn't rate the restaurant as overly expensive it is a bit pricey but worth it when you're looking for a good place to eat. As you could imagine with a name... More

Our last day touring in Solvang; this was our first visit. Nice atmostphere. Not too crowded. The portions are big, so you won't leave hungry. We got sandwiches and they were very good. Will come back when we visit again.
