Kolache Kitchen Moves Into Freret Street Po-boy and Donut Shop Space

The Baton Rouge-based restaurant opens this fall

The Freret Street Poboy and Donut Shop location will become a New Orleans outpost of Baton Rouge-based Kolache Kitchen (4701 Freret) this fall, reports Todd Price.

Kolache Kitchen owner Will Edwards craved the pillowy, filled Czech pastry ubiquitous to his native Texas while studying at LSU. With no kolache shops, Baton Rouge couldn’t satisfy that craving. Edwards graduated in 2011 and opened the first Kolache Kitchen in Baton Rouge at the beginning of 2013.

Serving just breakfast and lunch, the restaurant will sling both sweet and savory kolaches, breakfast and lunch tacos, and sandwiches with fillings like smoked brisket and pulled pork.

Freret Street marks Kolache Kitchen’s first expansion outside Baton Rouge, where two locations operate.

The Freret Street Poboy and Donut Shop closed in November after struggling to keep up with the “continued evolution of the neighborhood.”
