The Clean Plate is the very first exclusively vegetarian restaurant in Macomb County, Michigan. Located in Shelby Charter Township, the restaurant is family owned and operated by the brother and sister team, Brandon and Amber. Amber started eating clean at a young age and has been a vegetarian for twenty years. Her brother Brandon is not a vegetarian, but after working with his sister has begun eating a much more nutritious diet. Brandon worked at corporate restaurants for fifteen years before doing business with his sister, and his years of experience have helped greatly at Clean Plate. Before establishing Clean Plate, Amber opened Cacao Tree Cafe, a raw vegan smoothie juice bar, in Royal Oak. Today, both Cacoa Tree Cafe and The Clean Plate are flourishing with great reputations.The Clean Plate opened in December of 2013 and has been gaining more popularity amongst the community ever since. Itís become a destination restaurant for vegetarians and health-conscious eaters. Their menu is full of variety including soups & salads, sandwiches, burgers, wraps, pasta, and smoothies. They offer organic produce and goods that are locally sourced. Almost everything on the menu can also be made gluten-free, which is a big plus for those with dietary restrictions. All of Clean Plateís sauces, dressings, soups, and desserts are all made from scratch in-house and their sauces and dressings are all gluten-free. Clean Plateís bestseller is their A.B.L.T. sandwich, which is made with toasted wheat bread thatís topped with avocado, shiitake mushroom ìbaconî, lettuce, tomato, and garlic aioli. The combination of fresh vegetables gives great flavors in every bite. Brandonís favorite off the menu is the Sloppy Joe, which he says is a great choice for those who arenít used to an all vegetarian menu. The Sloppy Joe is made with a house-blend of tomato sauce, beans, lentils, and spices served on a wheat bun with red onions and lettuce. Their Black Bean Burrito, Vegan Mac-N-Cheese, and Thai Peanut Wrap are other popular choices. Of course they have plenty of smoothies and other nutritious beverages to finish off your meal!All in all, The Clean Plate is the perfect place to sit back, relax, and feel good about what youíre eating. The atmosphere is warm and welcoming with a very energetic, passionate, and hardworking staff. It is Amber and Brandonís mission to make sure that every customer gets treated like family upon walking through the door.
