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.
