In another delicious win for Houston’s Heights neighborhood, the Kolache Shoppe is bringing its beloved made-from-scratch kolaches, stuffed with everything from cherries to spinach, egg, and cheese and to brisket, to Heights Central Station, with an opening in the summer of 2018. The mixed-use property, currently in development at 1050 Yale Street, is also the future home of the third location of farm-to-table restaurant Dish Society.
This is the second locale for the family-operated bakery, owned by husband-wife duo Randy and Lucy Hines since 2014. The first location at Greenway Plaza opened in 1970.
The menu at the 1,200-square-foot Heights outpost will get a delicious new twist with several unique kolache flavors in the works, thanks to increased partnerships with local food purveyors.
Moreover, Heights residents can expect a drive-thru lane and an upgraded java program.
"Our Boomtown Coffee program will grow immensely – in addition to their drip coffee that our current customers already know and love, we plan to serve a wide variety of espresso-based drinks as well as cold-brew coffee,” Randy Hines said in a release.
He adds, “I grew up in the small town of El Campo eating homemade kolaches. These pastries take me back to my childhood, and I think that’s the case for many people in the Bayou City; kolaches are a celebration of Texas’ culinary heritage.”
The Kolache Shoppe joins a laundry list of restaurants and bars set to open in the Heights. Other upcoming additions to the neighborhood include popular Dallas-based coffee shop Ascension, a brick-and-mortar location of Melange Creperie, and new locations of Bernie’s Burger Bus and Cloud 10 Creamery.
