Kaye Robinson Callaway - Owner
Kaye’s family ties to Bosque County go back over 150 years. Growing up in cities she came to visit her grandparents farm, and after living here for 30 years she now calls it “home”.
Raising her girls down a dirt road, feeding calves and chickens, shooting rattlesnakes and dove, fishing and swimming in their tanks, Kaye learned about and began loving both the land and Clifton’s small town community.
In the last ten years, she became an entrepreneur with interesting ideas to create businesses that restore and benefit the historic downtown area. In 2010, she bought an old gas station on Main Street, remodeled it, and started the town’s fine dining restaurant, Mitchell’s Grille in 2011. Then she bought one of the rock wall connected buildings in the middle of Main Street, remodeled it, and turned it into a classic store, artistic studio with two second-story loft apartments. During 2013, she bought Clifton’s old jail and turned it into The Cell Block, a luxurious tiny hotel. The town allowed her to begin beautifying the alley, getting artists to share their ability of art so it can be seen 24-hours-a-day.
Now she is updating her successful restaurant and bringing back the buildings original name: Sinclair. Her new partners are creating truly seasonal farm-to-table food, sourcing as much as possible from local farms around Clifton.
