A "Texan-Czech bakery and hot doggery" called The Bohemian Cafe is slated to hit Lower Greenville in October, right next to the just-opened Indian restaurant Shivas. Owner Jason Horne is an East Dallas resident who grew up on kolaches. "My mom was Czech and taught me how to make kolaches, so I taught my daughters," he says. "Dallas has been in need of some real kolaches for a long time, so I'm opening a place in my neighborhood that I want to go to."
Horne promises house-baked kolaches in both traditional and "gourmet" flavors, klobasneks (sausage kolaches), breads, cookies, cakes and muffins. According to their website, "We will bake all of our kolaches and breads fresh, every day, with local sourced ingredients that you can pronounce... none of that extra crap!" Horne says "Czech dogs" will be served in a kolache-style bun or cornmeal battered and fried, and there will also be salads, soups, dumplings, chili and goulash. Patrons can also expect live music, free wi-fi, locally roasted coffee, tea, pure cane sodas, cider, wine and local craft beer as well as Czech beers. Bohemian Cafe will be open 6 a.m.-10 p.m.; the official opening date is set for October 13.
