Over 100 years ago, in 1911, three Danish-American educators discovered a place in sunny California where land was plentiful and their culture could prosper.  This place became Solvang, meaning “sunny fields” in Danish.  Solvang is located in the verdant Santa Ynez Valley among many wineries and ranches.

In 1971, Charles and Paula Greenwald gave up city life and moved to the wide-open spaces of the Santa Ynez Valley.  In May of 1971, they opened their first restaurant, The Belgian Café, in Solvang.  Although the location has changed since its inception, this restaurant still serves its authentic Belgian waffles and French crepes.
