The Kolache Factory Opens First DFW Location in Plano

Categories: Food News

Most of the time my inbox is filled with boring invitations to big vineyard wine dinners, press releases about a restaurant's seventh new menu and announements for new creations at Taco Bell. So when I got an email from Katharine Shilcutt, the food critic at our sister paper Houston Press, I got excited. The subject line read:

oh shit, son...

and then in the body:

you're in for some amazing fucking kolaches:

She then added a link to this short Dallas Sun article that covers the opening of our first area Kolache Factory:

Kolache Factory has opened its first Dallas-Fort Worth location in Plano. The Houston-based company features pastries filled with meats, cheeses and fruits. The Plano store is at 1217 Coit Road and is open seven days a week, but only until 2 p.m.

Schilcutt went on to admit there are those who don't share her high praise for the pastry franchise because the kolache dough is too sweet or that some of the stuffing choices are weird, but she's obviously a fan. And based on the scores of locations that dot the Houston area, she can't be alone in her opinion.

Their website says the Plano location is open, but they're not picking up the phone and the mailbox is full. Sounds like it's time for a weekend kolache excursion.

Anyone been?

1217 Coit Road, 972-867-9383

I lived in Houston years ago and it was the only place to go for kolaches. It will set the bar higher for Dallas kolache lovers. ❤️

Stopped there on Friday.  gummy and pasty.  Rancheros one with egg, sausage, cheese and japs was decent, altho it's basically a round Whataburger taquito. fruit ones were borderline nasty.  overall a giant meh.

For some reason, if you're going to put the word "factory" in your name, I'm going to avoid you like the plague.  Might have something to do with my one and only visit to The Cheesecake Factory.  Then again, it might just be because it doesn't sound the slightest bit appetizing.

This should hold off my trips to West, TX for awhile.

Sounds like I need to head up to Plano to try them out.  I have only tasted meat/cheese filled ones before so I would be interested in trying their fruit filled kolaches.  Btw, if you are too busy to attend those big vineyard wine dinner invitations that keep piling up in your inbox - I am more than willing to take your place.  As a food blogger, I feel it is my responsibilty to eat delicious food and tell other about it...

Hmmm, I may have to investigate. I'm kind of partial to a certain kolache place.Duffy's in Keller is pretty good in a pinch, though.

 @Guyndallas Did you click on the link?  Apparently it's where the sun never sets.  So.... Alaska in the summer.

Kolache Station (Parker and Independance) is JUST ok, just like everything in that corner (Country Burger, Mr. Jim's), the exception being Campisis's.
