Gypsy Queen Cafe
What a long, crazy trip it's been. In January 2011, about six months after they closed Helen's Garden, their popular Canton restaurant, Annmarie Langton, Tom Looney and Ed Scherer introduced Baltimore to their cafe on wheels and its signature item -- the Gypsy Cone, a waffle cone stuffed with macaroni and cheese, topped with bacon "bling." Looney said that for a chef, the main difference between a restaurant and a food truck is how close the customers are. "Every day is live theater for us," Looney said. "And our audience is right in front of us."
