Gypsy Cafe opening in Sebastopol

Sebastopol cafe to open

A new restaurant is slated to open at the former Pine Cone Cafe in mid-August. The Gypsy Cafe will be a breakfast and lunch spot serving (according to the window posting), benedicts, french toast, free range burgers, fried chicken, pancakes, candied bacon BLT, jalapeno corn bread, sandwiches and the best coffee in town.

Word is that the owner is Chef John Littlewood, formerly the executive chef at the Westerbeke Ranch Retreat Center and author of “Celebrating the Seasons at Westerbeke Ranch”. Most recently, Littlewood was exec chef at Oliver’s Market in Cotati where co-workers said he had recently resigned to open a cafe in Sebastopol.
