Tina was amazing, and the amazing food that this place had to offer was the cherry on top for our first time visit.

Sat outside on the cozy patio and had a great time.
Everything was exceptional! Great authentic food, our server Tina was outstanding, attentive, real personalized service and welcoming as one could be. It really shows they care about our experience. They even speak Danish.
had the Open ryebread sandwich,puff pastry tartlet and two Danishes. So fresh and most flavorful dishes and very affordable too. Thank you for a memorable day!

We took a friend who has spent time in Denmark, and she loved it as much as we did. She confirmed that the food was authentic, and excellent! We'll be sure to return!

What a lovely treasure to find in Hillcrest. The food is not your typical food, such sumptuous flavors with a Scandinavian flair. The service is very sweet, personal, and very informative. This is a must try place. You won't regret it.

What a great little find! We don't see Scandinavian places too often but were open to trying something European and new. The first plate of pickled red cabbage, creamed goat cheese and remoulade were super yummy, especially when paired with their in-house rye bread which is nothing short of fantastic and light years from what you'll buy off the store shelves. We proceeded to the pickled herring and caper on rye sandwich which was fresh and delicious without suffering from an overly vinegar flavor inherent in typical jarred herring. We also had a creamed chicken tartlet with a pleasantly light and airy crust. If that wasn't enough, the juices are fresh and blended well and the apple parfait dessert was a perfect finish.

We had brunch here and it was outstanding. We sat outside and enjoyed friendly service. The pressed vegetable juice was delicious. The rye bread is so good we bought a loaf!
We will be returning very soon. Highly recommend this place.

the food here is authentic DANISH including rye bread which is made on the premises on a daily basis. The husband and wife who own and operate the restaurant are quite delightful and are solicitous of each patron's opinion. We will definitely visit the restaurant again when we are in the San Diego area.

The food was really authentic, and really tasty. If you like pork loin this is the place to go. Mine was awesome. The traditional rice cream dessert was excellent. I thought i couldn’t finish the big portion I had in front of me, but I did. Tina, the proprietor, made the evening just that much more special.
