Great Kolaches for the Road Sep 03, 2009
Roughly halfway between Houston and Austin, Texas, drivers will see billboards advertising various kolache bakeries. This part of Texas was settled by Czech immigrants and kolaches are filled pastries (usually fruit) with recipes handed down generationally in Czech families.

If you are driving in this area on Highway 71, in La Grange, Texas, one kolache bakery far outshines them all. Weikel's Bakery makes fantastic kolaches in a Shell gas station with a bakery in the back. The pastries are fresh baked daily and the dough is so soft, it's almost impossible to describe. Fillings including cheese (my favorite), apricot, lemon, cherry, apple or blueberry melt in your mouth. I always stop by if I'm in the area, as these kolaches are a treat.

Weikel's is family-run and very friendly. Signs in Czech welcome visitors to the bakery. The Weikel family has been in the restaurant business in some form in the La Grange area since 1929.

Prices for kolaches are cheap with one kolache costing U.S. $1.00, two kolaches costing U.S. $1.95 and so on.

One negative about Weikel's is the atmosphere. Because the bakery is located in a gas station/convenience store, there are only a few picnic tables outside. It is likely visitors will need to take their kolaches with them.

Weikel's advertises that "We Gotcha Kolache" and these pastries are wonderful. These kolaches are so good that they've even been featured in a few national foodie magazines. It's hard to find good food for the road but Weikel's is well worth the stop.

This place is great. I happened on this bakery purely by accident a few years ago driving to Austin. I had stopped at McDonald's for a cold drink and noticed all the cars across the street. I decided to investigate and I'm glad I did. :)
