The way to a man’s heart is through his stomach, but to make it that far you have to be disguised as baked goods. Hone your culinary camouflage with today's Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of worldly pastries and more at Olde Towne Kolaches & Bakery, located at the corner of Westheimer Road and Fondren Road.
Lauded as Houston’s ultimate kolache destination, Olde Towne Kolaches & Bakery offers Texans an extensive menu of traditional Czech baked goods and fresh, made-from-scratch doughy desserts. The kolache, which first arrived in the U.S. after Lady Liberty implored Europe to send its tired, hungry masses and two centuries’ worth of its most beloved desserts, is a hand-baked pastry filled with sweet or savory ingredients. Unlike Americanized versions of the pastry, which are often loaded with tiny cherry pies and M-80s, Olde Towne’s selection stays true to the treat’s Czech roots, so you can grab a sausage and cheese ($1.75/$18.95 dozen) or a Texified ranchero ham, egg, and cheese ($2.10/$22.75 dozen) kolache for non-dessert noshing. Fruit-laden varieties ($1.05/$12 dozen) include apple, blueberry, raspberry, and more, while veggie options, such as the spinach, egg, and cheese ($1.85/$19.95 dozen), offer pastried protein without the risk of involuntary invisibility associated with perfectly cooked meat. Cinnamon rolls ($2/$22 dozen) and muffins ($1.55/$16.75 dozen) are also available, as are individual sweets and hot, fresh coffee.
At Olde Towne Kolaches & Bakery, all menu items and ingredients are baked fresh daily, and the dedicated staff arrives early enough to whisper words of encouragement to the soon-to-be-beaten eggs. Grab today's Groupon to Olde Town Kolaches & Bakery to artfully stock family breakfasts or informal early morning antitrust hearings with European charm and baked-good vibes.
Valid only at the Westheimer Road location.
- As Caldwell Mayor Bernard Rychlik sees it, the kolache is a gift from the Czech immigrants who settled in the Burleson County area, bringing with them the pastry and a sense of hospitality that provided ample chance to offer them by the dozens to visitors. – Tara Dooley, Houston Chronicle
- So many choices to pick from and all of them taste great! – Michelle, B4-U-Eat
