Kolaches, a Little North of West

PSKolache7by Trey Moran

I had heard and read about Pearl Snap Kolaches for months but had yet make it over there, so I went.  They are located in the old “Tres Joses” location on White Settlement road not far from University Drive where the road makes the big “S” curve. There is not much in the way of signage but you can’t miss it.

Inside is setup to be like a comfortable coffee shop/lounge with couches, tables and chairs. The atmosphere is pretty laid back. Some traces of the Mexican restaurant are still visible, such as the wall sized bullfighter mural, which adds to the charm.  As you enter, the counter is directly in front of you with all of the offerings displayed. A large chalk board menu is just above but it’s hard not to stare and salivate at what is laid out before you in the case. These really are not your traditional Czech kolaches and what sets these apart from the others I have tried is the dough. These are very light and slightly yeasty. Imagine a Hawaiian sweet roll with a little more density.  


The sausage rolls, or klobasneks, were very good. An all-beef, casing-free sausage that was very mild on its own but worked very well with the cheese and jalapeno. I was happy to see they didn’t skimp on the jalapeno.  The selection here is limited but do you really need that many kolache variations? They have the basics covered.  Cream cheese, cherry, apple and apricot kolaches were on the menu today as well as the klobasneks and cinnamon rolls.  I happily tried all of them.  The kolaches have a generous portion of filling. More so than any other place I’ve been. And I like extra filling.

PSK also offers organic coffee from Big Bend Coffee Roasters, Espresso drinks, tea and sodas. The staff was friendly, helpful and very patient. Even not knowing what to get I was in and out of there in no time. I shared my score with the guys in the office and based on the noises I was hearing from the other room, they approved.


Pearl Snap Kolaches is located at 4006 White Settlement Rd, Fort Worth.

Open 6am -3pm Mon-Fri and 7am-3pm Sat/Sun.
