Now you can get your Czech pastry fix minus the road trip to West: Newcomer Bohemian Cafe officially opened for business this morning on Lowest Greenville, right next door to recent Indian restaurant addition Shiva's. Open daily for breakfast, lunch, and dinner, folks can pop by to grab kolaches to-go or grab a table and order from the small menu that also includes hot dogs (with toppings like gruyere, sauerkraut, and aioli), goulash, chicken and dumplings, soups, and salads.
The kolache selection is clearly the main attraction here, though: In addition to the traditional flavors like poppy seed, apricot, and cherry, Bohemian Cafe has some unusual savory varieties including margherita and spinach-feta. Klobasneks, or meat-filled kolaches, come in the usual sausage or sausage-and-cheese iterations, but are also available in inventive flavors including chicken cordon bleu (chicken, ham, Swiss), pizza, a riff on the Monte Cristo sandwich called the Monte Czecho (ham, turkey, provolone, Swiss, raspberry), and yes, even chicken and waffles. Kolaches and klobasneks are priced between $2.25 and $2.75 each.
There's also pure cane sugar sodas by Dublin Bottling Works, coffee (including French press) and espresso by local roaster Noble Coyote. While a beer and wine permit hasn't yet been secured, patrons can BYOB or enjoy a glass on the house (with food purchase) for the time being. Free wi-fi and a regular schedule of live music add to the friendly neighborhood coffee shop vibe. Bohemian Cafe is open daily 7 a.m. to 10 p.m., except Fridays and Saturdays when they'll keep the doors open till midnight.
