OC Weekly's Description

Kolache Factory is a Czech bakery in Tustin. What is a kolache? It’s a Czech pastry made of yeast-leavened dough traditionally dimpled in the middle or folded like an envelope to cradle fruit or something equally sweet. If you saw one and were otherwise unaware, you might mistake it for a Danish. But that would be like thinking a bagel is the same as a doughnut. A kolache is a distinctive species of its own. At the Kolache Factory in Tustin, the pastry takes on many forms. Most resemble barely baked balls of dough, kind of pale and monochromatic, their bulk constituting of a pillowy texture akin to a soft, just-baked dinner roll. But kolaches are fluffier than that. They possess a comforting, toe-curling consistency somewhere between a steamed Chinese bao and a slice of Wonder Bread. There are nods to a Philly cheesesteak using chipped meat and a barbecue beef with actual chunks of steak in a sauce that relies on either vinegar or a hell-bent tomato for its tang. For vegetarians, there’s a lovely spinach kolache. When heated, the lake of spinach and cheese melts into a sensation equal to eating saag paneer with a spoon. And of course, there are fruit-topped kolaches, with the apple being the best. There are non-kolache pastries, too, including flaky strudels and croissants, one pregnant of scrambled eggs, cheese and ham that will weigh as heavily as a breakfast burrito in your hand and in your gut.
