Posted: September 24, 2016

Posted: September 24, 2016

Happily crossing Rosenberg on Market Street is Gypsy Joynt, a quirky eatery opened by Boss Lady Lori Atchison Weller. A family affair, Lori is the daughter of Evelyn and the late Ivey Atchison of the storied Atchison filling station on 71st Street and Stewart Road. Lori’s husband Keith Weller is head Chef/Grill Master and daughter Kaitlin Weller Stafford is the baker of those heaven sent pies and giant cookies and cinnamon rolls. Her husband Ryan Stafford is also a Chef as is daughter Merry Weller. Son Jordan Weller is the Jack of all trades and his wife Evangeline Weller is bar manager. Daughter Heyley Weller greets you as you enter this beaded and befringed space. Son Braedan Weller and girlfriend Colleen Kelly are in charge of the many different coffee drinks. Make time to visit this place, it’s right across from Maceo’s on 27th and Market streets.
