Great coffee, snacks, breakfast items. Pretty pricey, but this is Solvang. The seating is in a great location for just hanging out, or going in to explore the adjoining bookstore.

This is a favorite spot for people watching, sitting in the sun, and munching on the wonderful food. If you have tired of pastries and smorebrod, give this a try!

We never miss the Bulldog. It's adjoined to the bookstore and everything they make is delicious. Iced blended drinks are yummy. Great location and assortment of treats.

The coffee is only slightly better than your hotel and the staff is not happy you are visiting Solvang apparently. Obviously we did not have a good experience.

Small coffee shop with good choices of brews. Outdoor seating is a plus.

The Bulldog is a combination bookstore cafe. They have a great selection of coffee, teas and chai as well as some tasty pastries. There are several tables to eat in or take out. Best of all, I still remember the pretty girl behind the counter...More
