The Gypsy Cafe on Stone Way is so….Wallingford. It’s chill, eclectic, comfy, and full of comforting coffee smells and good music. But it’s going away as of next week, and that makes us Wallyhoodians very sad indeed. A quick conversation with Rachel, the lovely barista on the clock this foggy Friday morning, told us that local snowboard and ski and all-around cool company Evo bought the building and is planning a remodel. No concrete information yet on what will be housed in the new space, though there are whispers of a new cafe and a bike repair shop. I’m hoping for a crossbreed of the two with space for live music, maybe a ball pit?
Anyhow, although we welcome friendly new business ventures to our expanding little village, the departing of the Gypsy Cafe is a true bummer. Stop in and say hello this week. Tell them you love them. Bid them good luck. And always tip your barista.
