Like Free Doughnuts? Of Course You do. Koala Kolache was originally slated to open in its new location today at 14502 Spring Cypress Road in Cypress. Since inspection didn't gel with those plans, today, all customers will be treated to a free doughnut.

With a larger space, owner Vatsana Souvannavong is upgrading her offerings, too. Those in search of the same recipe and ice-cream-filled doughnuts served in the old store will find them at Karma Kolache at 17415 FM 529. Souvannavong sold the old recipe and space to her former partner and started again from scratch, with "no affiliation at all."

Well, not entirely from scratch. She still has her doughnut maker, grandfather Chune Ling, who owned doughnut shops in Souvannavong's native California. Souvannavong describes her new doughnuts as "more forward-thinking" than what she served in her previous store. Local ingredients play a significant role, as do creative flavors and presentations. And the new Koala Kolache is just getting started.
