Most out-of-towners come here knowing nothing of #kolachelife. But if there were to be a boxing match for the title of Heavyweight Champion of Houston Breakfast, it’d be a solid fight between this pastry and the breakfast taco. Thankfully, there’s not an upcoming match, because we really can’t decide who we’d put our money on. The sweet, filled, and stuffed pastries were brought to Texas by Czech immigrants during the mid- to late 19th century. As addicting as they are, it didn’t take long for them to make a name for themselves in Texan culture. Today, you’ll find them everywhere, but you’ll want to step away from the Kolache Factory and make sure you try some more authentic varieties, like at The Original Kolache Shoppe, for instance.
