Vegan venture

When GreenSpace Cafe – 215 W. Nine Mile Road in Ferndale – first opened three years ago, plant-based entrepreneur and educator Amber Poupore served as a food consultant for 18 months. Now, she’s back and running the kitchen at the vegan restaurant, a role that began in early December. “I didn’t want to freak people out and change the menu completely,” she said. “I really stayed within the same thing.” Guests will notice some menu items have slight differences, a few additions here and there. The menu will also include favorites from Poupore’s The Clean Plate – which closed in September due to a lease issue – such as her black bean patty, mac and cheese sauce, and mushroom stroganoff. While it’s been a bit of an adjustment for Poupore – who also owns Cacao Tree in Royal Oak — she is simply excited to be working again with Dr. Joel Kahn, GreenSpace’s owner.
