HOUSTON – In case you haven’t heard, let me be the one to introduce you to the only road trip your kolache-loving heart will ever need.
These aren’t just your everyday “kolaches” with sausage and cheese. No, these places give you an authentic taste of what a kolache really is.
According to Czech heritage, a traditional kolache is a sweet, yeast-dough pastry that is usually filled with a fruit jam. These Texas spots are serving them up the way it should be done.
Welcome to the Kolache Trail
Start up your car and head to the first of six spots along your route: Czech Stop
Located in West, Texas (between Waco and Dallas), this iconic bakery offers a massive variety of flavors including typical fillings like apricot, poppy seed or cottage cheese or more whimsical choices like Nutella or coconut cream.
Not to worry, because if you prefer the more popular savory options like sausage and cheese or jalapeño popper (aka klobasniky), the Czech Stop has you covered too.
