2/5/2016: Judith’s Kitchen to serve Keltic Krust on Saturday

The original owner of Keltic Krust, David McGimpsey, will be bringing scones & breads to Judith’s Kitchen on Saturday. David opened Keltic Krust around 1994 and sold the bakery to Chris rice in 2009. Keltic closed on August 31st, 2014 — aka the saddest day of my life.

Since selling Keltic, David and his wife, Julianne, have been selling Irish breads at the Holliston Suprette and farmer’s market under the label Montgomery’s Authentic Irish Breads. In case you never tried them, David makes possibly the best croissants in the world. I fancy myself as a bit of a croissant man so trust me on this one gang.

David — if you’re reading this, please come back to W. Newton. Not sure if you left because my kids would make a mess every Saturday morning. But they’re older now. And sorry too. Or maybe it was the time Christian bought all the croissants one morning even though he doesn’t like croissants. Whatever we did, we’re sorry. Just come back.

Guest blog from Kyle today you guys. I was honestly so bummed I couldn’t write this one. Anybody that knows me knows I’m in the croissant game and nobody did it better than Keltic. At least on this sad day you can enjoy some real writing…

Keltic Krust sprung one on us this weekend, announcing on Facebook on Saturday that Sunday was their last day of business. We made a final visit on Sunday morning, spreading corn muffin crumbs on the floor for a final time and grabbing some raisin soda bread for the road. “Amazing Grace” was playing on bagpipes on the speakers. Fitting.

It sounds like Keltic will live on by selling through farmers markets, hopefully stores like Russo’s, and even selling direct through the web so this is not the last time we enjoy their baked goods. A gourmet food to go place is going into the space and they may be open in the morning for coffee. Reports of a espresso machine going into the Cherry Tree are unconfirmed as of this writing.

Sláinte, Keltic Krust!
