Local Kolache Shop Begins Month-Long Grand Opening Celebration

Dignowity Kolaches is launching their official grand opening celebration, and it’s going to be a lengthy one. The month-long soiree begins this week and runs through February 11. But the long celebration seems just right for founding sisters, Silvia Alcaraz and Lupita Rivero, who opened their bakery last year and wanted to get everything just right before embarking on their “get-the-word-out” campaign.

Located on East Houston, just east of 281 in the storied Dignowity Hill neighborhood, and right across the street from the celebrated Dignowity Meats sandwich hangout, Dignowity Kolaches has been building a name for itself by shaking up the staid kolache status quo with its juicy barbarcoa kolaches, available every Friday along with the prerequisite Big Red soda pop (in glass bottles, no less). The barbacoa, cooked in-house and hand-rolled into the flaky kolache pastry by Rivero, is quintessentially San Antonio, making Dignowity Kolaches, a breakfast stop that should be on every local’s list.

Open Tuesday through Saturday, you can get your fix of the old standards, too: meat, cheese and fruit kolaches, as well. The bakery also features a menu of cakes, cookies and quiche. Large orders and catering, a specialty of Alcaraz and Rivero, themselves the founders of the award-winning catering house of authentic interior Mexican cuisine, Cocina Heritage, are also available.

The schedule of deals (one per purchase/transaction) is as follows:

Through January 21: Take a receipt from a local east side business (TBA) for $2 off your $5+ purchase; January 24-28 ~ Buy one of anything, get a second one free; January 31-February 4 ~ Free drink with a purchase; February 7-11 ~ Take your Dignowity Kolaches receipt to any participating East side business (TBA) for $1 off your $5+ purchase.

Dignowity Kolaches, 1629 E. Houston St., (210) 320-1050.
