Back to the Roots, downtown Chelsea, MI
Hanging out in Chelsea one morning I stumbled upon this adorable cafe called Back to the Roots. The atmosphere is very cool and relaxing. They have couches and comfy seating at the back of the shop, booths and tables in the middle by the cafe & sushi bar, and the front is all fair trade retail. The staff is very friendly & helpful and the food is great!
