“Good, but not great kolaches”
Reviewed December 11, 2012

Having grown up in the area, I have sampled baked goods all across the county. The kolaches are good, but not the best. A little too much bread, and a little over cooked. The pan sausage pig in a blankets are pretty good. The store has a large selection of foods and tourist items. Clean restrooms and a large number of gas pumps make this a good place to stop when travelling through Fayette county.

“Excellent kolaches”
Reviewed October 29, 2012

We were returning from Lago Vista to Richmond, Tx needed gas, a snack, and a clean restroom (4 women)plus safe! This was an excellent place where we could do all we needed at the time and also found time to set and have a kolache.....what a treat. It was a good as my grandmother used to make. Will definitely stop again!

“Great selection of kolaches and other foods”
Reviewed October 16, 2012

We stopped here for some kolaches - and were not disappointed. The selection is amazing; try the sausage and sauerkraut! Also, they have fresh beef jerky that is just wonderful. We also picked up some jars of spicy sauerkraut and carrots which have proved to be out of this world.

“Second stop here.”
Reviewed October 8, 2012

Had stopped here on a previous solo trip earlier this year from North of Austin to Seabrook, Tx. for the fresh seafood to bring home. Fell in love with the breakfast pan sausage egg & cheese croissant on that trip.
So, when my wife & I were headed to Galveston for a Caribbean cruise departure, we had to stop here for a breakfast sandwich. Unfortunately, it was a Sunday and they don't make croissant breakfast sandwiches on Sunday; so we opted for the pan sausage & cheese kolaches and my wife also had a lemon kolache. The sausage & cheese kolaches were very good if a bit spicy, but my wife said the lemon rendition was a bit dry.
The rest of the experience was very good; they have very clean restrooms, gasoline pumps outside, and assorted tourist shopping inside.
We will return on our next trip to the Houston area.
