A new breakfast pastry shop called Pearl Snap Kolaches has opened on Hulen Street in Fort Worth, co-owner Wade Chappell confirms.
Kolaches are sweet yeast buns baked with fruit in the middle. They're often sold with klobasniky, or meat-filled pastries. This delicious Czech tradition, which can be seen in Czech-influenced towns like West, Texas, has become popular among Texans.
Back to Fort Worth: Pearl Snap Kolaches has operated on White Settlement Road for several years, but Chappell told the Fort Worth Star-Telegram he was searching for the right address close to TCU and Tanglewood for a second shop. That new Hulen Street shop just opened Dec. 2.
Of note, the restaurant on White Settlement Road also sells tacos and kolache burgers -- which are kolache buns sandwiching a beef patty. (Yes!) You'll have to wait a bit to get tacos and kolache burgers on Hulen Street, however. Pearl Snap Kolaches on Hulen Street for now is selling cinnamon rolls, kolaches and klobasniky only.
Both shops sell espresso and other coffees.
Pearl Snap Kolaches is located at 2743 Hulen Street, Fort Worth. (The other restaurant, still in operation, is located at 4006 White Settlement Road, Fort Worth.) Hours at the shop on Hulen Street are Monday through Friday, 6-11 a.m., and Saturday and Sunday, 7 a.m. to noon.
