A Must Stop

I've been driving back and forth from Austin to Houston for much of my life and can't seem to make that drive without stopping at Weikel's. This is now a very much larger and spiffier store than the original, but the outstanding kolaches, cookies and pigs-in-a-blanket have a magnetic pull. Always... read more

Its just a gas station with a bakery! But its a VERY GOOD bakery. We have had their cinnamon rolls and some other kind of dessert and both were excellent!

Baked fresh, Weikel's pies are fabulously delicious. From coconut cream, to lemon meringue, to chocolate cream pies, they will all become your favorites too!

I'd not been there since the expansion and renovation. The old comfortable feeling is gone. It's just like any other gas/convenience store along any other highway in the USA these days. Order your food at the grill. Get a copy of your order which becomes your bill that you have to take to the cashier at the front of the... More

To be clear, La Grange is a small town. We don't have a lot of "sit down" restaurants. For those that are surprised this is ranked number one, it's not that we love to hang out at the gas station/bakery. It's because their bakery is consistently that good, and has been for decades. The bread is fantastic, the kolaches and... More

The battle rages on between those that love Weikel's and those that favor Hruska's down the road in Ellinger. Hruska's is good but oh my gosh, the bread holding the fruit filling in the kolaches or around the sausage in the pigs is manna from heaven. It is sweet and soft and out of this world delicious. I am drooling... More

We stop often to get breakfast items on the go. The fresh baked items (too many to list) are awesome.

Are people this desperate in La Grange Texas to rate this place number one? If I were a restaurant owner, I would be in a state of shock. It has the ambience of a truck stop and has a Dairy Queen-like menu that is served at the counter. The only appeal this place has is a very large bakery counter... More

We recently moved to La Grange from Austin. Most of the locals told us to go downtown for kolaches, but we had already seen Weikels from the highway. It seems that time has not been good to the bakery. They have evolved into a commercial, fast buck, highway signs every so many miles, "McDonalds-esque" establishment. I swear the kolaches tasted...

Cute store with neat Texas/Western items. Yummy treats at cheap prices. I got a 5"x5" sticky bun, and two 5"x5" German chocolate brownies for $6.50 Plus tax.
