Good Eats: Solvang Restaurant, Solvang, California
Solvang Restaurant 1672 Copenhagen Dr., (800) 654-0541, (805) 688-4645. Home to Arne’s famous round aebleskivers (they taste like waffles), fresh-squeezed lemonade, and open-face sandwiches, this restaurant lets you choose between sitting inside in a charming Old Country-style carved-wood booth and ordering from an expansive menu, or purchasing some Danish fast-food through a sidewalk window outside for take-away. Local specialties and coffee shop-style sandwiches and soups are on the menu, plus, of course, plenty of pastries, and counter seating on swivel stools is available in the back. A children’s menu offers up a reliable hot dog, hamburger, and peanut butter & jelly sandwich.
