Here’s Where You’ll Find the Best Kolache in Texas

The Lone Star State is home to many surprises, but perhaps the tastiest of them all is a small shop that sells what can only be described as the best kolaches in the world.

Never heard of a kolache? Let us educate you.

As Southern Living previously explained, a kolache (pronounced koh-lah-chee) hails from the Czech Republic. The treat usually comes stuffed with sweet treats inside like apricots, prunes, or sweet cheeses.

The dessert-like food (not to be confused with its savory counterpart, the klobasniky) became a Texas staple thanks to the large Czech diaspora that settled in the state in the late 1800s.

The tradition of making kolache continues in Texas today, with the Czech Stop and Little Czech Bakery creating perhaps the best version of the treat in the entire state.
