Houston Press: "We Drink Both, Just For You, Dear Reader"
The Starbucks and Kolache Factory on Bellaire Blvd. at Stella Link have always had a symbiotic relationship.
There's no way that Seattle-based Starbucks can come up with a breakfast item to match a good ol' Texas kolache, and if you didn't care for Starbucks coffee, or didn't want to wait in two lines, Kolache Factory could offer a reliable cup of Douwe Egbert coffee service.
Every morning there's heavy traffic between Starbucks and the Kolache Factory two doors down, and people sitting outside and inside Starbucks drinking coffee with a Kolache Factory bag at their side. For some reason, most people go to Kolache Factory first, then to Starbucks, even when they're getting both to go.
