a boatful of joy

This Cherry Boat is my absolute favorite treat from Olsen’s Danish Village Bakery in Solvang. Olsen’s is one of my all-time favorite places to eat, and with good reason. Their pastries are made by a real pro — you’ll be hard-pressed to find a crust more delectably flaky, fillings more perfectly formed, and sweets more visually appealing than these. Of course, there are definitely a number of good bakeries in Solvang, but this one is one of the best. In the winter, Olsen creates a giant gingerbread house (about 4 feet tall) elaborately decorated with icing and puts it out on display in the main eating area. But the sweets…oh, the sweets are available year-round. The staff is friendly (if a bit inattentive), and their laissez faire style makes lingering an acceptable activity. Give this one a try if you’re ever in the area!
