About Kolache Creations

Howdy! My name is Robert Ahrens. My wife Gloria and I are the founders and owners of Kolache Creations (formerly known as the Kolache Shoppe). I have been in the bakery business for over forty years now. My parents purchased a Kolache bakery in Houston in 1970. The purchase included the Kolache Shoppe name, the equipment, an authentic Czechoslovakian Kolache recipe and the services and expertise of an experienced Kolache baker. Over the next ten years my parents built up a successful business while opening up several more locations including one in Austin, TX, my birthplace.

In 1980, I had just finished up my four years of college when my father began contemplating closing the Austin location. It had been open for about nine months and was not doing very well. When proposed with the possibility of taking over the business operations, I decided that, because of my passion for cooking/baking and the confidence and experience that I had built up working in the family business for the last ten years, I was going to move to Austin and try to salvage the floundering business. Over the next several years, I was able to turn around the business, secure a $25,000 loan and purchase the Kolache Creations (formerly known as the Kolache Shoppe) from my parents. So here I am, almost thirty years later, blessed to still be in business and doing something that I love to do... producing the finest kolache products anywhere here on earth while making a nice living doing it.

For over thirty years now, Kolache Creations (formerly the Kolache Shoppe), has been providing folks with the "total" bakery experience. We start out with an "old world" taste and feel and combine it with a wide verity of contemporary and traditional kolache's which are prepared fresh daily and served by our friendly and knowledgeable staff. When you arrive at "The Best Little Bakery in Town"™, you will be greeted with a nostalgic aroma that will sweep you back to when you were a kid. Remember when the whole house was filled with the decadent smell of your mom's or grandma's homemade goodies baking away in the oven?

Kolache Creations

At Kolache Creations, we too prepare everything from scratch, by hand and fresh daily. The defining characteristic of our bread is the authentic flavor and the light and fluffy texture. It is almost as if you are biting into flavored air! We offer over twenty five different varieties of Kolache products that include our ever popular sausage, sausage, cheese and jalapeno, and sausage and cheese kolaches. We have at least nine different traditional open faced fruit filled kolaches and, of course, cream cheese filled kolaches. Then there are the more contemporary ham & cheese, sausage, egg & cheese and the bacon & cheese filled kolaches.

For lunch, how about a Philly Cheesesteak or a BBQ Brisket filled kolache. Got a sweet tooth? Try one of our delicious cinnamon rolls, available plain or with nuts or raisins. And finally, we could not call ourselves a true kolache bakery unless we offered the very traditional poppy seed, prune and cottage cheese kolaches. We also have a full line of drinks that includes juices, sodas, milk, energy drinks, etc. Our coffee is always fresh and you can still get a small cup for less than a dollar! Check out our menu page of the web site for our complete line of kolaches and other bakery products.
