Good news, friends. As of this morning, Kolache Republic is officially back.
After closing their original location at 730 S High Street, the Texas-Czech style pastries can now be found down the street inside the Daily Growler. In addition to their breakfast and sweet menu items, Kolache Republic will also be offering a happy hour menu Thursday-Saturday after 5 p.m.
“We’re excited to be back in the same neighborhood and grateful to have the opportunity to partner with the Daily Growler,” said co-founder Dusty Kotchou in a press release. “This venture allows us to offer a new menu that will pair well with some of the best craft beer selections available in Columbus.”
The new partnership between Kolache and The Daily Growler got started back in March, but due to the pandemic, the opening was delayed. “We did not envision re-launching Kolache Republic during a pandemic, but we are adapting to the situation and creating solutions to the new challenges that we are faced with. Our priority is to provide a safe environment for our staff and customers,” Kotchou said.
Kolache Republic has been on the block for seven years when they were one of the first businesses to open in the stretch between Sycamore and Frankfort Streets along South High Street. Now, their neighbors include Antiques on High, Ambrose and Eve, and Lawbird.
John Blakely, the owner of the Daily Growler, explained why the pairing between the bar and the bakery seemed like a perfect fit. “We’re excited to have Kolache Republic as a partner especially since they have been a longstanding staple in this neighborhood,” said Blakely in a press release. “Their food compliments the variety of craft beer selections we offer and our customers are going to appreciate having the option to eat kolache while enjoying a beer.”
Kolache Republic’s breakfast hours are Wednesday through Friday, 7 a.m. to 1 p.m., Saturday, 8 a.m. to 1 p.m., and Sunday, 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Evening hours are Thursday through Saturday, 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. The bakery is closed Monday and Tuesday.
You can find Kolache Republic inside The Daily Growler at 702 South High Street in the Brewery District.
