Little Danish Village


Solvang, which means “sunny fields” is a very cute small Danish town north of Santa Barbara. If you are in Santa Barbara or wine tasting, make sure you save some time to stop by this little town. They have many tasting rooms for you to try different wines and they have lots of bakeries in which they are known for. It also offers beautiful architecture, delicious restaurants, and charming shops. The surrounding scenery is so lovely and bucolic and the trip up alone is cathartic and breathtaking. I’m really glad we stopped here on part of our road trip, it’s a sight to see though kind of touristy… but for me it was quaint and sweet.

Today’s coffee: Grande caramel brûlée which I liked better than their eggnog latte…

  2. Touristy for a reason! It’s Europe in California. It definitely feeds my longing of Europe every time I go here. Though, not as usual, because it always make me wanna go to Chumash Casino. bwahahahahaha

  3. I’ve been eyeballing that Caramel brulee sign the last couple of times I’ve been in Starbucks. Tomorrow may be *the* day! 😉

    Solvang looks like a lovely town/village. Your pictures captured it quite favorably.

      • The caramel brulee was wonderful, especially those crunchy sugar crystals on top of the whipped cream. Thanks for posting your image – it prompted me to try it! :-9

  4. I visited Solvang on my way from San Francisco to L.A. It’s a cute picturesque town. I loved walking around… something so different from the rest of what we visited in California.

  6. It’s cool how you can find these little ethnic towns around the US. I wonder if any people of Danish descent still live there.

    • That was what I was wondering also… I didn’t see any culture or traces of Danish on that small town except for the pastries and architecture. All were more of American ways… well, it’s US. 😀
