Dutch’s Bake Shop is closing Saturday, after a grand opening only in May, although chef Jessica Van Houten-Jones had been selling baked goods with partner Stuart Spurr for more than a year.
The shop, at 185 Pasadena Drive in Creative Kitchen and Table, made muffins, bagels and other baked goods for local restaurants and for customers by special order.
Dutch’s announced the closing on Facebook, saying retail sales have already stopped. “Thank you all who have supported us through this incredible journey,” the announcement said.
The closing comes after several locally owned restaurants in downtown Lexington closed last month, including Enoteca, Wines on Vine, Chatham’s, and The Julep Cup. Cheapside, a bar on Short street, also closed, at least for the winter.
