It’s been well over a year since my first visit to KOLÁČE Dough Co. & Eatery.
To those who haven’t ever been, your first question may be, “What is that?”
KOLÁČE Dough Co. & Eatery is a little restaurant that specializes in kolaches (or kolace, kolach, kolacky) which is a Czechoslovakian-inspired pastry that can either be topped with sweet and savory toppings or filled with meat and non-meat fillings.

KOLÁČE is located inside Tyler Pointe at 13th and Tyler. When you arrive, you’ll see a display of different kolaches to choose from. When you go will be dependant on what options they have available from the sweet and savory side.
They had plenty of egg and savory specialties available but very few sweet options the morning we stopped by.
Prices haven’t changed over the year. Kolaches run $2.75 for most of the breakfast egg options, $2 for the sweet options and then $3 for the specialty options like BBQ pork, pepperoni pizza, Buffalo chicken Ranch, etc.
On our visit over the weekend, we had the bierock, pepperoni pizza and the cheeese, egg & chorizo options.
The best of the bunch was the pepperoni pizza which was like a lighter version of a hot pocket with less breading. It also didn’t burn the roof of my mouth like a hot pocket does. One of my favorite parts about a kolache is the bread, it’s very soft and fluffy.
The bierock option was alright. It was missing a little something and could have used mustard or another condiment to liven it up. The cheese, egg and chorizo wasn’t too well received. It didn’t really wow either of us. We were hoping the chorizo would offer some sort of kick or spice but it all felt flat to us. All of the ingredients inside it tasted similar, almost bland.
What’s nice about KOLÁČE is there are so many flavors. The key is to finding the right kolache and filling that pleases your taste buds. With 23 different options that shouldn’t be too hard. It’s also best when they are fresh.
The service there was great. The gentleman working the counter was very friendly and had a great attitude to him. I could tell he was having a great day that morning. There is minimal seating inside so it’s more something of a carryout place in my opinion than one to just sit and relax for a while.
Here’s the menu:
