The kolache, a traditional Czech treat made with yeast dough and filled with something sweet, is giving other pastries a run for their money. The kolache has grown so popular in America that in 2013, The New York Times proclaimed the kolache poised to “be the next-generation doughnut.”

Matt Kelley, owner of Lucky’s Restaurant in Tulsa, has taken some liberties with the kolache and created his own version that is sold at Oklahoma Kolache Co., a new breakfast eatery along Cherry Street. Serving both sweet and savory kolaches, the café produces several varieties fresh-baked each day. Selections include smoked chicken, apple sausage and cheddar cheese; banana and nutella; and The Big Daddy – a combination of Granny Smith apple and green chili. The homemade kielbasa and cheddar cheese kolache is a divine breakfast treat. Oklahoma Kolache Co. also offers hot and cold drinks along with specialty coffees. If dining in, remember: The café seats only 10 or so. 1534 E. 15th St., Tulsa. www.oklahomakolache.com
