There is a magical place between here and Austin called West, Texas. You would think the name implies that it is in the western part of Texas. But it’s not. It is actually 200 miles to the east border of Texas and 550 miles to the west border of Texas. West, Texas is a small town with Czech influence which is why there is a small gas station there called the “Czech Stop” which sells kolaches.
Kolaches are kind of like a Danish and come with a bunch of different fruit fillings. The dough is sweet and soft since they bake them every day. The place is so popular they have a parking lot next to it and you have to wait in line for at least 10 – 15 minutes. But it is so worth it to have kolaches to eat for the last hour of our drive back home.
