Description: OUR STORY Birkholm's Bakery was founded by Carl "Cookie" Sr. and Charlotte Birkholm in 1950. Birkholm's has been family owned, passed from generation to generation for over 65 years. In 1980, Carl Jr. and Elizabeth Birkholm stepped in to carry on the tradition of baking in Solvang. Carl continues to use the original Danish recipes that "Cookie" brought over from Denmark. In 2011, our son Carl "Thomas" approached us wanting to learn and continue the business like his Grandfather "FarFar" and Father had done before him. Thomas is the 3rd generation of bakers in Solvang and with the Family, he is looking forward to a new beginning. Velkommen Til Solvang

Birkholm's Bakery has been in business since 1951, so they must be doing something right!

When we walked in, we were promptly greeted by a friendly employee who offered us samples of their Danish butter cookies, which were delicious.

We browsed around and were tempted by the large variety of Danish pastries and cookies, but since we just ate a hearty breakfast at a nearby restaurant, we decided to just buy 3 buckets of their famous Danish butter cookies to take home.

The bakery has an attached dining room if you want to enjoy your pastries and beverages inside or they also have a few tables outside. Highly recommended!

The fresh pastry was lined up in an irresistible display. We settled for a bear claw with almond filling--one was enough for the two of us. Extra shots made our lattes better.

There is outdoor seating which was very pleasant on a sunny October day.

First time in Solvang quick stop. Very friendly staff. Definitely will come back. Took a few pastries home. The rasberry filled pastry was different and very good.

All the other bakeries had small buckets. This was the only bakery (that we noticed) offering a bigger bucket which was better for taking back to our jobs to share. My bucket of cookies was gone by the time lunch rolled around, everyone loved them that much.

Off the beaten path of Highway 101 but keep driving until you get there. The town of Solvang is adorable and Birkholm's is a perfect place for pasteries and coffee.
