Globe-trotter, baker, and neighborhood booster, Niki Gillota's Gypsy Beans & Baking is a café in the spirit of the venerable European coffeehouse -- a place where people come to exchange gossip, enjoy a steamy mug of java, and taste something sweet. Airy and unpretentious, the comfortable interior invites study, reflection, or long conversation. Well-stocked and tempting, the bakery counter offers a lineup of sweeties that includes maple muffins, Amazon chili-pepper brownies, and chocolate truffle tartlets. And the worldly lattes come in boundless variations. All this goes down in the burgeoning Detroit-Shoreway 'hood, with its growing collection of upscale housing, restaurants, and arts and entertainment venues. Locals can only hope that this Gypsy has come to stay.
