Who doesn’t love a fresh-baked, warm, straight-from-the-oven kolache on a brisk winter morning? You can taste it, can’t you? Well get ready to head over to some of Houston’s top kolache shops in celebration of National Kolache Day on March 1. Check out how a few stores are honoring the “holiday”’ with some delicious deals.
