The Village of Clinton is losing one of its restaurants as the owner announces plans to retire.

Karen Booth, owner and head baker of The Dessert Booth says she plans to retire and will close the restaurant at the end of August. 

The Dessert Booth has been a staple in Clinton for 16 years, first on College Street, and then Kirkland Avenue. Karen Booth, says the restaurant grew out of a couple of successful years baking for the Clinton Farmers Market. When a friend mentioned that an equipped restaurant was available on College Street, Karen took the leap. Now, she says, the time has come to retire.

 

Well the time has come to let all of you, our customers know that as of August 25th, The Dessert Booth will be closing. I will be retiring. It has been great getting to meet so many people in the 16yrs. we've been open. Thank you for going through some of our changes with us ( some you did like and some you didn't like). It will be hard to say good bye to so many of you that I consider friends. Our paths will cross again I'm sure.
Please stop by before Aug. 25 to say hi before we're closed.
Also if you have a gift certificate make sure to use it up.

So make sure you head down to The Dessert Booth one last time to taste some of Karen's amazing baking.
