Our favorite restaurant for quiet and delicious meals. Feels like we’re visiting with family every time we are there. Matt, Aric and their staff are the best!

Fresco’s my favorite place in Solvang to treat myself to a great meal. Sometimes I dine in, other times I pick up soup-to-go. Either way, the staff greet me with a smile and make me feel special. Oh, and the food’s superb too! 🙂

Order Very Veggie Sandwich with no cheese, which comes with Salad, I ordered greek salad with no feta. Salad was awesome, so good, then started with sandwich which was so awesome as well. […] The soup was so awesome, but the highlight of our lunch was the burger, amazing burger.

Solvang is already an amazing place and having this restaurant there makes it all the better. It is unfortunate that there are not many Danish/Scandinavian restaurants with high praise. No worries though, Fresco Valley Cafe is quick, tasty, and easy on the wallet.

Nice garden-like fenced patio. […] Excellent (service). Dude walked around with two pitchers – one of ice water and another of iced tea. I offered to scratch his nose for him. Interesting menu. […] I liked my chicken parmesan calzone and salad. My wife liked her field greens salad with chicken. And the amount of dressing is perfect – not bland, not drowning. That may be why they’ve won Best Dressed two years running.

I came here with my toddler in her stroller, the main dining area inside is nice and spacious!

This place was super awesome! I got the veggie burger with a Greek salad and my boyfriend got the salmon salad. They were really good! Happy we decided on this place on our way up to Morro Bay!

My husband and I were recently in Solvang for Danish Days. […] After looking at the menus at a few restaurants, we wandered upon this place. We ended up staying because of the variety of menu offerings and inside sitting with a/c! I ended up getting the BLT with fruit. The bacon was perfectly cooked and the lettuce and tomato were fresh. I appreciated that they went easy on the mayo. Service when ordering was friendly and our food came out quickly

[…] Fresh food and SUPER good coffee. Nice outdoor seating area, too. Just wish they opened a bit earlier than 11 am.

As a vegetarian, it was definitely challenging trying to find something to eat. […] We were in an onion mood, apparently. My wife ordered a sandwich with Brie cheese, egg, and caramelized onion. I got a quiche with Gorgonzola cheese and caramelized onion. […] The combination was excellent. Their choice of cheeses left me wanting more. […] It is definitley a place visit for the vegetarian-minded if you’re looking for something more than some Danish sweats. Great atmosphere in a charming little square.

We hired Matt and his team to do the catering for our Rehearsal Dinner out at Live Oak Camp in September. […] While preparing for the event Matt was real responsive and was nice enough to meet me at the venue once for a walk through to make sure everything was conducive for his set up. […] This place exceeded my expectations entirely. The food was so good and we got nothing but raves from everyone, all the Californians AND the French. And the team Matt brought out was super friendly and professional. I would definitely recommend using them for catering.

Great place. The food is awesome, plus large portions. Taking half my sandwich with me. Everything is very fresh. Just awesome!

LOVED this place. All around excellence for our party. We visited on a Saturday night with our 10 year old daughter and our 18 month old English Bulldog. The server gave us a few table options and seemed to genuinely care about our dog’s experience. […] My husband and I each had a seared ahi sandwich which had a large piece of fish. We were stuffed. My kiddo loved her giant pizza slice. The restaurant has a nice beer and wine selection and the desserts looked awesome too. This was probably our favorite meal of the trip. The servers were on top of it and truly made us feel welcome. […] Great job! Will visit the next time we’re in town.

[…] Looked up some places on Yelp and decided on this little cafe. Wow! We are so glad we did. […] OMG! It was probably one of the best soups I’ve ever eaten. I wanted more as soon as I finished licking the bowl clean! […] We will definitely be back here again! I just hope they have the soup!

We ordered the angus burger and seared ahi tuna wrap- both amazing!!! Got a side order of Gorgonzola salad with my burger. […] Got there berry cheesecake and chocolate mousse ball- for solvand that does not specialize in fine bakery was good.

Fantastic little cafe in Solvang. Had the chicken club and my wife had the greek salad. The outdoor patio is a nice place to enjoy a glass of wine (with our dog) and people watch.

Brendan B.

Aric what an honor to be received by you!! I really appreciate your desire to satisfy a vegans dining experience… […] I love ur cafe and will always be your fondest patron!!

Becky B.

Awesome food! Perfect for lunch. Very dog friendly! Even brought him a bowl of ice, cold water!

Ramon J.

The meal Is excellent. I had the turkey club with Chinese chicken salad. Very fulfilling but not heavy. Highly recommend for lunch or dinner. Dress casual prices are fair. Great establishment!

Great Food and Service in Solvang. Skip the lousy Danish wanna be’s. Quality dining, fresh ingredients along with an amazing wine list with great prices. Thanks goodness we found this spot after being disappointed with so much high price and low quality restaurants in Solvang. This will be our mainstay the next time we are in town.
