The first European explorers set sail with hopes of finding new, exotic spices to placate the palates of monarchs, but all they found were heaps of inedible gold. Pick up where they left off by broadening your mouth's horizons with today's Groupon to Kolache Kreations in Ellicott City. Choose between the following options:
- For $3, you get any two pastries and two small coffees or apple ciders (up to a $7.50 value).
- For $6, you get a half-dozen kolaches (up to a $12 value).
Kolache Kreations adapts generations-old eastern European recipes to bake up fresh, circular pastry bundles loaded with sweet and savory fillings, all complemented by a menu of coffee drinks and beverages. Kolache's old-world wizards start with slightly sweet dough and tuck the tender foundation around scrumptious stuffings of fresh fruit, meats, cheeses, or an infinite series of incrementally smaller kolaches. Surprise unsuspecting taste buds with the portable palatability of traditional cream-cheese or blueberry kolaches (a $2 value each), or mow down a cluster of italian-sausage-and-cheese kolaches (a $2.25 value each). The bakery also serves up more familiar snacks, such as fresh cinnamon rolls, cream-cheese crumb cake, and chocolate-reverie-inducing brownies (a $2 value each). Fresh-brewed coffee steams alongside hot apple cider (a $1.50 value each for small) at the coffee and espresso bar, providing quaffable compliment to sweet treats. Customers opting for the half-dozen kolaches are recommended to place orders via holographic carrier pigeon at least one day in advance to ensure availability.
