Where to get decent kolatches now in the TC?
Seriously, a big loss to the West Side.
From today's Pioneer Press:
"The West Side of St. Paul is a little sadder today, its first day without Jerabek's New Bohemian Bakery.
Owners Russell Spangler, Ronda Vincent and John Wills wrote a note to customers Saturday on Facebook to announce the news that the 107-year-old bakery, at 63 Winifred St., would close for good Sunday.
The owners cited "physical, financial and emotional challenges" in making the sudden decision to close.
They thanked their neighbors and longtime customers and sent out a plea to help their employees find other work.
The current owners bought the bakery in 2008. Its Czechoslovakian pastries, called kolaches, were based on a recipe from its founder, Ed Jerabek.
The bakery's downtown St. Paul skyway location was also shuttered this morning.
Attempts to reach the owners were unsuccessful."
