Hidden downtown in Englewood, NJ, nestled between restaurants and tiny shops, lays a plant and coffee lover’s dream: PlantShed. When you walk into PlantShed you’re instantly acquainted with greenery, vibrant flowers, colorful journals, and the scent of more aromatic candles and room sprays than you could dream of. Basically, you are transcended into Heaven. As soon as I walked in I didn’t know where to start, I couldn’t wait to pick out a new plant, while I was also eager to taste a creamy iced coffee.
Anyone who knows me knows that opening a shop like this is my absolute dream. I love both plants and coffee, so owning a mixture of the two would feel like reaching my own personal nirvana. The shop, which has also has locations in NYC, have so many different plants to choose from, but as usual, I gravitated towards the cacti. A unique cactus in an ombre pot with black stones ended up coming home with me and I couldn’t be happier to add it the family.
Once I had my new plant baby all wrapped up and tucked away, I made my way over to the coffee bar. They offer many unique coffees but I decided to stick with the classic iced vanilla latte (which totally exceeded my expectations and put Starbucks to shame). If you’re ever in the NJ/NY area and looking for coffee, a florist, or a place to chill, check out PlantShed, your inner coffee lover and green thumb will thank you.
