How It Started
The original Kolache Kitchen opened in January 2013 in Baton Rouge, Louisiana just steps away from Louisiana State University. Will Edwards, Houston native, saw the absence of kolaches in the Baton Rouge area. With overwhelming support from his family and friends, Edwards opened his first location less than two years after he graduated from LSU. Thanks to the Baton Rouge community, the first location has thrived ever since the month it opened. Due to high demand and continuing support, Edwards opened his second location on Jefferson Highway in Baton Rouge in April 2015.

What is a kolache?
A kolache is a hot fresh baked pastry, prized for its soft, pillowy dough and its versatility. Kolache fillings range from sweet to savory. Originating in Central Europe, kolaches became popular in certain parts of America, especially Central and South Texas.
The Food
Customers are welcomed to enjoy an array of items prepared from scratch every day. The Kolache Kitchen serves a variety of sweet and savory kolaches, breakfast tacos, empanadas, cinnamon rolls and other delicious freshly baked goods. The Kolache Kitchen proudly supports many local businesses including Community Coffee and Kleinpeter Dairy products. The Kolache Kitchen even serves a boudin Kolache, a Southern twist on a traditional pastry.

Both locations offer a lunch menu in addition to the breakfast menu. The lunch menu includes delicious sandwiches and fresh tacos. The sandwiches include a brisket and pork that are marinated in a secret recipe and then slow-smoked for 12 hours in our kitchen.

In today's fast-paced world, The Kolache Kitchen is the ideal choice for a nutritious meal that is baked, not fried.
The Atmosphere
The Kolache Kitchen provides the atmosphere of a family and student friendly local coffee shop. Both locations provide free wifi to all of their guests.
