Guess what! I’m going to be fancy and do a block quote. What’s the occasion? Kolaches!! (aka Czech bun-type things filled with yumminess)
There’s apparently a big Czech/kolache center in Texas; sounds like I need to do some traveling for science (or vicarious traveling…maybe I can find a Texan-baker willing to do some research…? >.>).
– Mary from n00bcakes on kolaches
Howdy! I am happy to report that this Texan-baker (1/4 Czech/Bohemian to boot!) has finally done some field research for blog pal Mary. The Czech/kolache center that I assume she was referring to happened to be on the way to New York, but umm, much closer to San Antonio than my final destination. It’s in West, Texas and every time I say this, I feel the need to add a dramatic pause where the comma is so as not to sound like I’m referring to West Texas. Totally not where this place is…it’s 75 miles south of Dallas and 15 miles north of Waco, which is the northeast part of Texas.
This gem of a place is known as Little Czech Bakery which is part of Czech Stop. There are gas pumps in front of it making it also a gas station, which you can use as justification for stopping to Czech it out (hur hur). I had to get gas, so this was convenient, but there were so many people that I had to wait 5 minutes. No biggie.
