    "TEXAS MONTHLY MAGAZINE' says that the two best Kolache bakeries in this huge state are, amazingly, located only 5 or 6 blocks apart in the same little town. The town of West. We have tried both of them and cannot choose between them, they are both delicious and wonderful. So try both of them if you can.

    The Village Bakery is a smaller, more intimate operation, but boy do they know their Kolaches. The lady who served us was very nice and we signed their guest book as travellers from Nebraska. On our last stop they asked us if we would like our fresh kolaches warmed up to take with us!

    They have virtually any flavor of Kolache that you could imagine.

    THIS IS THE OTHER KOLACHE BAKERY rated "best in Texas" by Texas Monthly Magazine. Compared to the Village Bakery, this is a bigger operation with a bit of a truck stop feel due to the accompanying gas station. But they do have more room for larger display cabinets of their wonderful Kolaches, and when we ordered ours, they asked us if we would like them warmed a bit in the microwave (we did). So its all good here as well.

    In the bakery on the right side of the building, you can also get a dozen frozen kolaches to take home. Usually they offer a second dozen for free! (at least they did as late as May 2013)

    West is an old town from at least the 1800s. Many of the brick buildings have the painted signs still on them, very worn away. It looks like a typical town that non-Texans think of when they think of Texas in general. There aren't many cowboys, just farms and cows.

    There isn't a lot of nightlife in the town of West itself. There is a bar, though, if that's what you like to do. This one has been here a long long time, and much of the town's gossip comes from this bar.

    Dress Code: Nope...

    Fondest memory: Never forget the volunteer firemen and other first responders who lost their lives in April of 2013, when a nearby fertilizer plant suddenly exploded. Much damage was done to structures in town, and many people were injured.
