Earthy Picks will open just steps from Lake Eola.

Orlando vegans—this one’s for you! Longtime Central Florida vegan pop-up favorite, Earthy Picks, is opening a brick-and-mortar location just two blocks from Lake Eola in Downtown Orlando! Earthy Picks will serve a delicious range of “Latin cuisine with a twist” including burritos, tacos, and bowls!

Earthy Picks, one of Orlando’s most recognizable vegan pop-ups, is finally opening a brick-and-mortar location in Orlando’s downtown area. Prepare to walk into a fresh, light space with colorful hand-painted murals and warm wood accents. Earthy Picks will feature a long-stretching bar space, as well as inside and outside seating, so you can eat in or take out after a walk around Lake Eola’s 1.1 mile loop.

Earthy Picks’ Most Popular Dishes

You’ll be blown away by their bestselling “Crazy About You” bowl, which comes with warm rice, filling beans, caramelized sweet plantains, creamy avocado, crispy greens, savory vegan ground beef, nutrient-dense sprouts, and a refreshing cilantro sauce!

Or consider enjoying their Locos Tacos, a set of three crunchy taco shells filled with portobello mushrooms, black bean purée, fresh pico de gallo, avocado, spicy mayo, and sprouts. All of the food at Earthy Picks is inspired by owner Tatiana Henao’s upbringing in Colombia and her love of Mexican cuisine. The dishes at Earthy Picks have been made with a plant-forward, holistic philosophy and with health in mind.

Earthy Picks’ Grand Opening

Upon opening in early April, Earthy Picks will be Downtown Orlando’s sole Latin-inspired vegan restaurant and among just a handful in the Orlando area to be BIPOC- and woman-owned. It’s hard to imagine that when she started, Henao had to borrow tables and canopies just to put on the pop-up she launched with her mom and sister’s help!
