Obama's favorite Des Moines cookie cafe set to close

Posted:
DES MOINES (KWWL) -

The bakers of chocolate chunk cookies loved by the Obama family are closing the Des Moines cafe.

Baby Boomer's Cafe owners, Rodney and Tom Maxfield say business is great, but they're burned out after eight years behind the counter.

Before he was elected president, Barack Obama, his family and staffers were frequent visitors to the cafe during the summer of 2007 when they crisscrossed the state before the Iowa caucuses.

The Maxfield's say they haven't found a buyer so they are just shutting up shop.
