I had never had a kolache before. Narrow life, but I have never seen one in California. That said, while waiting for my flight at George Bush Airport I had a kolache and a variety of donuts. The kolache was good, I have nothing to compare it with. I regret I did not have a glass of milk, but at... More

This was my first time having a kolache. What a great idea!!! Also, had an apple fritter. It was good but not what I'm used to. I will have to go here again.

I like the drive through. I did not care much for the donuts. They were dry with weird gum like frosting. They are very expensive as well.

Krispy Kreme? I don't think so! These Donuts are Hot and Delicious. They have NO GREASY taste to them. Insides are light and Fluffy. Get a dozen of the Glazed and a Hot Cup O' Joe to Go!!!
