What is Kolache?

Wren's Nest Baking Co - Menu 2023-52_edi

The Kolache, a popular Czech pastry, is made of a soft yeast dough enveloping a sweet or savory filling. The dough is a bit more dense and sweet than you will find with most filled pastries, making it a delicious treat to enjoy any time of day!


In 1953, Wendel Montgomery, founder of the famous Village Bakery in West, TX, developed a unique version of this baked good filled with sausage and referred to it as Klobasnek. As a Czech-Texan, Wendel noticed the craze that Texans had for the traditional hot dog and saw an opportunity to create something even better - a hot dog enclosed in sweet kolache dough.

Chefs around the country have continued to get creative with their fillings for Kolache - just as we have here at Wren's Nest Baking Co. We offer a variety of gluten-free Kolache on our menu, including our very popular Sausage, Egg, and Cheese Kolache, our hearty Cheeseburger Kolache, our mouth-watering Sun-Dried Tomato Pesto Kolache, and our new Vegetarian Frittata Kolache. Ask a team member to recommend their favorite Kolache to order! We are excited for you to try this delicious, savory treat!
