Q&A with the actual yellow door

Q: So, I've been hearing some buzz around town... what's this yellow door thing?

Yellow Door (Door, for short): Every Thursday, walk through me into a friendly, uber-casual eatery in the home of long-time Chelsea residents, the Ortbrings. Volunteers cook up eclectic (gourmet!) and familiar breakfast offerings using seasonal ingredients. We shop at farmers markets, direct at farms and, in a pinch, the local markets. We're on a quest to share Michigan's agricultural bounty. (Hey, did you know Michigan is the second most agriculturally diverse state in the U.S.?)

Q: Sounds kind of cool, though it seems a bit odd. What do you mean? I can just walk through their door, like anytime? Won't I, like, wake them up?

Door: Think of Yellow Door as a weekly breakfast cafe in a comfy home with loads of character near downtown Chelsea. You'll smell breakfast as soon as you step on the sidewalk. Oh, and the Os are already up, ready for work at their downtown creative gig or lingering over coffee at the yellow door tables. So, don't hesitate!

Q: Okaaaayyyy. Hmmm.... Do I need to RSVP? Do I need to arrive by 7:30 a.m.? (Because that isn't happening!)

Door: No RSVPs. Arrive anytime -- before closing at 9:30, that is. If you're off to work by 8:00, stop by for speedy take-out. Simply BYO plate and let us know you're in a hurry.

Q: Sounds pretty cool. May I bring my younger children?

Door: Absolutely! Little ones are always welcome!

Q: How much is breakfast?

Door: We appreciate a $10-15 donation with all net proceeds benefiting the Chelsea Community Kitchen, a new incubator for food businesses.

Q: Okay, last question. So, where the heck are you located? Why don't you make it easier to find you?

Door: Sssshhhh... we're an "underground" breakfast cafe. If you need the address, walk three steps, scratch your nose and tuck some hair behind your ears. So, kidding!!! Just email us here.
