Dessert Truck Works Closes Its Cafe at 6 Clinton
The Dessert Truck hit a roadblock, as it were. By the end of this month, the brick-and-mortar component of the five-year-old confectionary business (aka Cathcart and Reddy) will be kaput. Its sudden closure was confirmed yesterday by the arrival of a note to customers in the doorway.
Effective yesterday, cafe and dessert service at 6 Clinton Street are no longer available. The computer printout also reveals that holiday preparations and cooking classes onsite will continue for the remainder of the month; full closure is planned for the end of the year.
This final bow for the Dessert Truck Works on Clinton Street comes two years after initially opening, and While the sign hints at a possible return, some readers already speculate otherwise. Just recall the batch of Department of Health issues with which the cafe had to contend. Also, the truck itself was retired last winter.
Here’s the farewell message from the company website:
With some regret, we must inform you that we will stop operating our cafe beginning on Mon., Dec. 3, 2012. (We retired our truck last winter). For the rest of Dec., we will run our workshops and fulfill holiday orders from the current cafe location. After Dec. 31, 2012, we will cease all operations at our cafe.
