Man has strived to successfully hide goodies inside pastries since Blackbeard first baked his pearl-handled beard curler into a bundt cake. Unearth bread-encased treasures with today’s Groupon to Kolache Cafe and Baking Company. Choose between the following options:
- For $5, you get $10 worth of sweets, pastries, sandwiches, and drinks.<p>
- For $14, you get a mix tray of two dozen kolaches (a $27.98 value).<p>
Bakers stuff flaky pastry shells with a cache of sweet or savory filling to craft the traditional Czech pastry for which Kolache Cafe and Baking Company is named. Peruse the menu to pick out options for the kolache mix tray. Choose 24 kolaches from all available flavors, collecting enough comestibles to feed 13–17 guests or lure striking knives and forks back to the bargaining table.
Patrons can also barter for sweet kolaches infused with cherry, apricot, or chocolate cream cheese ($0.99) or pelt mutinous younger siblings with a barrage of meaty bacon, ham, or jalapeño-sausage-and-cheese morsels. Alternatively, cinnamon or blueberry-streusel-filled rolls ($1.99) stuff the morning’s growling stomachs, and savory pastries made with beirox, a concoction of ground beef, cabbage, and onion ($3.49) or an assortment of wraps and specialty sandwiches ($5.49) can sate midday appetites.
Kolache Cafe & Baking Company
Mama Krusty taught her 13 children to memorize her family's famous kolache recipes, just as her father taught her to do at his bakery in Czechoslovakia. Carrying on the tradition at Kolache Cafe & Baking Company, 1 of Krusty's 13 students fills bakers' racks with pastries made by following that long-remembered formula. Inside the café, red walls surround glossy wooden tabletops, and a long rectangular rug emblazoned with Kolache Cafe's logo leads up to the cash register and chalkboards bearing a written menu of kolaches. Each golden pastry is crowned with sweet or savory ingredients including sweet chocolate cream cheese, blueberry, and jalapeño cream cheese with bacon, and signature stuffed kolache pockets surround their cargo with a pastry shell, like a backpack carved out of a large flaky biscuit. Cake bites in flavors such as tiramisu and key lime wait to ride waves of Peet's coffee or fountain drinks into hungry mouths.
