Keltic Krust has closed its doors after more than 20 years in West Newton. While the bakery and cafe won’t be on the corner, it’s not moving too far away, as it’s now available online.
In a blog post dated August 30, Christopher Rice writes:
After over 20 years, the Keltic Krust is saying goodbye to West Newton. We will miss all of you wonderful customers very much. But we plan to carry on the Keltic Krust name in a new venture, and hope to have our Irish breads, scones, teas and other treats available soon online, at local farmers markets, and at local specialty stores.
The Rice family bought the bakery in 2009 from the Irish family that opened it. Given the current farmer’s market right on Elm Street most Saturdays, it appears that people won’t have to go too far to get the baked goods.
A new venture is apparently moving in: Judith’s Kitchen. According to the post and to the sign on the door, Judith’s Kitchen will focus on prepared meals to go. Of course, you can always get a different kind of meal at Blue Ribbon, right next door, and then work off the calories at the Boston Sports Club, just a few doors down.
