The oven has fired up again at the Kolache Shoppe at 7113 Burnet Road #112. The bakery that specializes in kolaches and klobasnek (the actual named for a savory-stuffed pastry like a pig-in-a-blanket) closed last summer after more than 30 years in business. And the new owner knows the shop well.

Debra Ford, who has operated the adjacent Cleopatra’s Salon for the last seven years, has been a regular customer for years. She reopened the Kolache Shoppe last week, after renovating and updating much of the space. In addition to the namesake pastries, the Kolache Shoppe also sells cinnamon rolls and other assorted sweet pastries, as well as coffee and bottled drinks. The revamped Kolache Shoppe is open Monday-Saturday from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m.
