Kolache Shoppe

KPeff | Feb 9, 200811:34 AM

I went to the Kolache Shoppe for breakfast this morning. It was hit and miss. I'll definitely go back and try more kolaches, though. They're on Burnett south of W. Anderson, behind the nightclub 'Dallas.'

First one I had was some new 89 cent meatball kolache. It's just what it sounds like. A 1.75-inch diameter meatball, soft and tender and German-tasting, in kolache dough. I liked it. The dough was the same for all the kolaches I had, by the way. Tasted a little sweet, and it was soft and moist like steamed Hawaiian bread.

Second one was a ham and cheddar kolache. When I took it out of my bag, it was remarkably heavy. It had odd layers of kolache dough and cheddar, and the chopped ham I was hoping for. This was the best one. At $1.85 it is kind of expensive, but you can get full off of two of these if you don't have lumberjack breakfasts seven days a week.

Third and last one was "jalepeno, sausage, & cheese". I like the way Shipley's does theirs. They have circular slices of sausage with cheese and jalepeno rings inside a pocket of kolache dough. But Kolache Shoppe decided to do something doofy, instead. This oddity was just a fat 2-inch diameter, almost 4-inch long log of jalepeno cheese sausage with a thin soggy kolache wrapper. It's not for me.
