Woodlawn/ Riverdale Irish bakeries?

I noticed today that the Traditional Irish Bakery on Katonah Avenue has gone out of business. Does anyone know of another Irish bakery in the North Bronx/ Yonkers area? I have to get some soda bread for a relative back home and my baking skills are nonexistent. Much appreciated!

  1. I hardly come to chowhound (my wife monopolizes our one computer)so I know i am way late responding to this post. If you know the Woodlawn area (I live near Katonah Ave.) then you know that about 8 blocks north is the Yonkers line & Mclean Ave. There are two Irish breakfast places on the North Side of Mclean a few blocks west of St. Barnabas school & church. Across the street from theses restaurants is your basic Bagel place which may carry soda bread just because of the ethnicity of the area.
    I miss the great scones the Irish Bakery served as well as the fact that you could eat lunch/dinner in their adjoining dining room. Space is now occupied by an Indian restaurant which is usually empty.
    Sure sign they are not long for this site: they recently put up a review of their restaurant from a few years ago.

      This is correct. Though that bagel shop is far from basic, they likely have the best bagels you can find in nyc. They are amazing.

          Don't know the one Recursion is talking about, but the min-bagels at Rolen Bagels (on 236th and Riverdale Ave. - kosher, so they're closed Saturdays but open Sundays) are outstanding. The regular ones are good, too, but the small ones are terrific. Nice selection of lox and cream cheeses, too.
