Welcome to the weekly Shutter Report, a roundup of restaurants that have closed recently.

Williamsburg: Von Dolhens is no longer serving froyo and waffles on sticks on Bedford Avenue. The shop, which just revealed its wall of froyo machines to the public back in May, could just be closed for the season — it's no doubt hard to keep up a booming froyo business in December. But at the moment, at least, no one is answering the phone, and an Eater spy reports that the staff appeared to be clearing out the basement.

Park Slope: Chip Shop and Corner Burger are both closing up shop on 5th Avenue, reports Here's Park Slope. Luckily for fish and chips fans, the Chip Shop location on Atlantic Avenue is safe.

Bay Ridge: Longtime neighborhood diner, the Donut Shop closed its doors over Thanksgiving weekend, notes DNAinfo. Either the father and son behind the place posted on Facebook: "I had to post this last egg I served. Me and my family like to thank everyone for their comments and emails we received and like to wish everyone Happy Holidays and a Happy New Year."

Brooklyn Heights: Kiddie focused restaurant The Moxie Spot is closing December 14, after seven years on Atlantic Avenue, shares DNAinfo.  "It has been very special for us to cook and serve food, dance, sing, read and play with you," owner Nat Rubin posted on the restaurant's site.

Lower East Side: Smorgasburg vendor Brooklyn Piggies has closed up its first brick and mortar shop, which just opened in January, says EV Grieve. The piggies are still available online.
