The Gypsy Cafe in Sebastopol is pausing its restaurant service until 2023, amid a worker shortage and supply chain issues. But true to form, owner Shawn Hall will keep the popular spot open with yet another pivot.
In October, the 11-year-old restaurant known for its hearty brunches, lunches and comforting dinners will become Gypsy General Store and Pie Bar.
Gypsy still will serve organic coffee and fresh juices as well as wine and beer at their bar.
Hall has repeatedly pivoted her business through the pandemic, offering takeout food, building an outdoor area and changing Gypsy Cafe’s hours. But a worker shortage and supply chain challenges have forced her to end restaurant service, for now, she said.
In addition to pies, Hall also will sell a variety of vintage items and handicrafts at Gypsy, including rustic salvaged iron pieces, pottery, furniture, jewelry and goat milk soaps. Her Gypsy Cafe Cookbook will be released this fall.
Gypsy Cafe is located at 162 N. Main St., Sebastopol, gypsy-cafe.com. Open 8:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. Wednesday through Sunday and 5 to 9 p.m. Friday.
