The Heavy in Winter Park is relatively new to the Central Florida area. Some might even say they’re a little green. 😂 Very new, actually. And while the owners of this new shop are most certainly not green or new to the area (they own the fantastic Porch Therapy shop located in East End Market) this new space is quite a breath of fresh air to the area.
I’ve taken note over the weeks of some of the great pics folks have been sharing on Instagram of their visit to the plant/coffee bar (more on that later). So when we saw our friends over at Pulptown were going to be hosting their first AM monthly meetup at this venue we thought it’d be the perfect opportunity to finally check it out live and in person.
Sure there are pillows, chairs, candles, coffee table books, and magazines. The set up is really quite cool, and there’s plenty of space to walk around and enjoy everything. And of course there are plants. A lot of plants. As it should be now knowing who the owners are and where the concept originated. If you want to know and learn more about their plants and upcoming events you should check out The Heavy’s Facebook Page.
There is COFFEE! There should always, always be coffee, right? Perfect for grabbing a cup of something hot or cold and then walk around and shop. I opted for something warm on this morning – a simple flavored latte…which I liked a lot-tay. ☕️
A further look around:
A few things worth noting for future visits:
- The Heavy has a flower bar. Flower lovers can choose flowers by the stem, a signature arrangement, or grab a seat at the bar for a hands on floral experience.
- If you’re really into flowers you can get a floral subscription (weekly, bi-weekly, and monthly).
- The store is open every day of the week. Varying hours of closing depending on the day, and opening each morning at 10am.

So have you had a chance to swing by this place yet? What are your thoughts?
PRO TIP: The Heavy is located in the old Lombardi’s warehouse on the corner of 17-92 (Mills Avenue) and Orange Avenue. It’s a little tricky if you’re not familiar with the property so you might want to map it out prior to venturing out. You can also access Harmon Avenue from Palmetto Ave which runs behind Foxtail Coffee.
