A little on the pricy side but they are really good. Service was quick and friendly. I have tried their cookies, tarts, danishes (of course) and can say that everything I've tried was delicious. With some things the portions are a bit oversized, so the prices somehow make a bit more sense, but because they are so large unless your sharing, your faced with two options
1. Finish the whole thing and soak in shame
2. Throw it away
Neither option is great, so I guess make a friend and get yourself a cookie.

Thank you for the 4 Star review and your patronage. A little history on Olsen's...Bent and Susy moved to Solvang in 1970 from Denmark where the family has been baking for four generations. The cookies, tarts, and Danish pastriy recipes were created by Bent's Great, Great, Great Grandfather so long ago and are still original Danish today. Have a safe and enjoyable trip.

One of many great places in Solvang to hang out early morning with coffee and a danish. Buy their tub of cookies, very good as a gift or just to have for yourself.

Thank you for the 5 Star review and your patronage. Glad you enjoy hanging out at Olsen's... just a little history about us. Bent and Susy moved to Solvang in 1970 from Denmark and the recipes that are used today were created by Bent's Great, Great, Great Grandfather who were master bakers. Today Bent is recognized also as a Master Baker. Have a safe and enjoyable trip.

Our first night in Solvang, we picked up a bucket of Danish cookies, which sustained us throughout our 3-day trip. But our favorite item from Olsen's was the giant almond paste kringle. This was plenty for the four of us to share and made a tasty breakfast!

Stopped in for coffee and pastries and they were wonderful! We had very attentive service and the people working there were very friendly. I asked the young gal waiting on me what her favorite was, there were so many choices that I went with her favorite. It was tasty! Would definitely recommend.

Thank you for the 5 Star review and your patronage. Just a little history....Bent and Susy moved to Solvang in 1970 from Denmark where the family has been baking for over 3 generations. Today they are using the recipes that were created so long ago. Olsen's really is an "Authentic Danish Bakery" in the Danish Village of Solvang. Have a great day.

We stopped here to try the Danish butter cookies. Unfortunately, they're only sold by the tub, and we didn't feel like spending $18.95 for more cookies than the three of us could eat. Instead, we ordered coffee, a strawberry meringue cookie and a cherry boat pastry.

The coffee and the cherry pastry were good (although I thought the pastry needed more cherry--just a spoonful in the middle). Cookie was okay.
