Sykora Bakery Reopens in Cedar Rapids

On Saturday, April 18 Sykora Bakery reopened after a three year hiatus. The Czech Village bakery site was crowded with many well wishers including Iowa governor Chet Culver and Cedar Rapids mayor Kay Halloran. Sykora joins a number of businesses welcomed back to the community following last June's record flood of the nearby Cedar River. The Cedar Rapids Gazette has a story about the opening. Hurry down for your kolache soon. Bakery owner John Rocarek promises to use the original bakery recipe for the popular Czech pastry. Know that.
