490 1st St, Solvang, CA 93463
Be sure to get abelskivers - the round Danish pancakes - Paula's Pancakes gets top reviews: http://www.paulaspancakehouse.com/
But there are some kitschy cafes in the heart of Solvang to also try that have some "Danish" specialities - Solvang is still a small family type town regardless of its tourist hype. Solvang Restaurant on Copenhagen street is on the main street that sells them from a sidewalk window, but might also be worth going there for lunch -- just for this retro small town cafe feel. Lower your dining expectations and just enjoy being in the middle of the fun: http://www.solvangrestaurant.com/abou...
