Default Kolaches, PLEASE READ

The West Kolache thread prompted me to dig up this article.
As a Czech it covers a sore spot for most of us.
As for the best Kolaches? My grandma is long gone, the best I have found are at Weikels in LaGrange. Don't remember which place I tried in West, but they were GARBAGE,,,,

Man I have not been to Weikel's in a long time. That place does have GREAT kolaches. I just never get down that way much anymore. They used to have great jerky also.

Well as a member of a family who owned a Bakery in West, I have tried the ones in LaGrange and they were not all they are cracked up to be. Calling the West Kolache's Garbage is a little harsh. Not sure where you got them from but anything on the highway except for the sausage (klobasniky) from Slovaceks is not nearly as good as down town.

Best I ever had isn't really a Klobasnek as its not Czech but German so called a sausage roll, a "Würstchen im Schlafrock". It was at the German Bakery towards the end of Main in Fredericksburg. Its a full sized homemade sausage in the dough about 1/2 lb and they are the best.

no offense meant to your family, it was many years ago and was likely one right on the highway, and they were VERY disappointing.
Does your family's place do mail orders?
I would like to try them.

Shaking my head. No such thing as a kolache with meat. Kolaches are a cream/jelly filled pasty. Like stated above, it's a klobasnek. I hate going into places and looking at the tags that say kolache for everything.

And yes, Weikels is undeniably the good. Country Bakery in schulenburg and Hallettsville are just as good IMO. Now I'm hungry. Crap

Nope, ya'll are wrong. Cheese or fruit filled pastries are called "Danish"

Here's the deal, in all seriousness. America is a melting pot and the best of things are pulled together and combined to make even better things. I don't really get hung up on the names of things and take it personally or get all wound up when things are mispronounced. Hell, I have a last name that I am completely shocked when people pronounce correctly (about 1 out of 20 times.)

I'd venture to say the reason they are not called by the other name is because maybe it is hard to pronounce, etc and at the end of the day it is just easier to call it "sausage kolache". I'm fine being the guy that calls it wrong. I mean, I'll call a Tex-mex restaurant a Mexican food restaurant even though we all know Mexican food is wildly different.

Trust me Czech Stop was horrible a long while ago. My family sold the bakery in the mid to late 90's. It is now Gerik's bakery.

I completely agree. I could use a jalapeño and cheese "sausage kolache" right now.

If y'all are going through Centerville there is a new Czech bakery at 45 north and Hwy 7. If you turn east on 7 the driveway/road is just a block or so down on the right:

As a kid, that was our stop on the way to Somerville every time we went fishing.

Stop on the way home and buy Slovacek sausage in Snook too.

Been a long time since then.

Both my grandmothers were Czech, I think I have one of their recipes, the other didn't have anything written, just made from memory. As she was as on her death bed she was laying in her bed unconscious and obvious to Who was around her and she was making her kolache dough, she was rolling it out and everything.
