(Updated at 12:13 p.m.) Republic Kolache, D.C.’s buzzy pop-up kolache shop, will sling pastries at American Ice Company (917 V St. NW) for the last time on May 28, the company announced via email this morning.
“It’s been a good run,” the “bittersweet” announcement reads. “From the wild turnout on our opening day last August, to the great fun we’ve had collaborating with guest chefs on kolache flavors, to the simple ritual of sharing kolaches and coffee with so many of you each week — getting our little kolache bakery off the ground at American Ice has been an immensely gratifying process.”
The company announced it will also end its pop-up shop at Union Market the same weekend. But the kolache company isn’t down for the count:
“We’re actively working on finding a permanent brick and mortar home for Republic Kolache,” the announcement reads. Furthermore, the company is slated to launch a late night weekend kolache pop-up at Dacha in Shaw on Friday, June 3.
