Weikel’s Store & Bakery, is a “Texas-famous” convenience store and bakery on State Highway 71 in La Grange. Their claim to fame is “authentic Czech kolaches…, famous for the soft, fluffy dough… made from scratch every day from [a] special family recipe traced back to Czechoslovakia.”
Foodie’s Corner which is going to open any day now at 11340 TX-183A Toll Rd, Leander, TX, is licensed to make and sell Weikel’s most popular products. All bakery products at this location will be made from scratch on site.
When Williamson Reporter checked on construction progress 11 days ago, the owner was onsite. Asked when they were anticipating opening, the response was, “in ten days.” That put the opening day at October 20, which has now passed.
While construction and other opening delays happen, the store and bakery appear close to complete. Shelves appear stocked, sod and landscaping are nearly finished, and a beer vendor was delivering product when Williamson Reporter shot these photos earlier today and yesterday.
