Jim and Anthony O'Keeffe's traditional bakery is an institution in Newry and attracts shoppers from a wide area to purchase favourites from the tempting choice of freshly baked breads, buns, cakes and savouries made here.
The core products are the delicious traditional breads and cakes of the region - the wheaten loaves, soda farls, potato breads, fruit bracks and malt loaves that distinguish Northern Irish baking - but the range they offer is very wide and includes breads to suit the current palate, including health breads, savoury foods (including a very good quiche) and all sorts of cakes and confectionery. Popular treats to look out for specially include caramel shortbread, porter cake and whiskey cake.
Occasion cakes are a speciality, notably wedding cakes (both traditional and modern) and novelty cakes for birthdays and other special events. Online ordering is an option.
