Olsen's Danish Village Bakery @ Solvang

While waiting for a table at Paula's Pancake House, we decided to check out Olsen's Danish Village Bakery. The bakery can be quite overwhelming with so many options to choose from. 
Bent Olsen, a third generation baker left Denmark to work with Solvang's Danish baker in the mid 60's. Five years later, he set up his own shop where he presents a full line of Danish treats.  Today, the bakery is run by his son, Herluf Olsen and his wife. 
 It is here where family recipes of four generations are found
Life is short. Eat Cookies =)
The Apple Strudel was amazing, the pastry was buttery and flaky. The apple filling was more apple than syrup and the combination of almonds flakes made it heavenly
These deliciously crisp cookies are filled with scrumptious butter flavor. The cookie tub assortment contains 6 different flavors : almond, coconut, oatmeal, chocolate vanilla swirl and cinnamon

Verdict: TOTALLY SMITTEN

  1. Wow, a family line of bakers. I wonder how many more generations their business will last. Maybe someday you'll return here and find that it's become a five-generation business! :D
