What is a Kolache
A classic kolache is a slightly sweetened yeast dough, Czechoslovakian in origin, that’s filled with apricot, poppyseed, sweetened cottage cheese or lekvar (prune butter). Czech immigrants came through the Gulf of Mexico in the mid-1800’s, along with their scrumptious kolache recipes, and settled in parts of Texas, where they are now as popular as bagels and doughnuts. This versatile, slightly-sweetened bread dough is also delicious when filled with a variety of fruits, meats, cheeses and/or vegetables.
At Café Kolache in Beaver, you’ll find our breakfast kolaches filled with anything you’d put on a breakfast plate (bacon, sausage, ham, eggs, cheese, potatoes, and more), our traditional and dessert kolaches filled with various fruits and creams, and our lunch kolaches (which look like mini empanadas/calzones) filled with all kinds of meats, cheeses and veggies. Kolache dinner rolls compliment our homemade soups and salads….so one way or another, we get you eating a “kolache”!
