Have I eaten one before? Yeah, probably- because as I have learned in the last 24 hours that I began researching Kolaches; they're basically just a Czech pastry that can be filled with either fruit or meats and cheeses. So, I think I have eaten them before- I just never knew that they were called Kolaches!

The kolache was amazing. The dough for the roll was amazing!  The egg and cheese was also tasty. Now that I know where this place is, I'll def have to come more frequently.
