When you walk inside Harold’s Coffee Lounge in West Palm Beach’s colorful Northwood Village, you are greeted by freshly brewed coffee aroma and local art pieces screaming for attention.

The trendy coffee lounge is offering more reasons for locals to swing by, thanks to a brand-new beer and wine license that’s also displayed on their wall. It was issued on March 16.

The coffee house added beer and wine in response to customer preferences.

“So many customers were bringing in their own beers and we thought, ‘Why not offer it to them?’” owner Keith Palagye told The Post Friday.

For now, the Harold’s Coffee is offering a few beer selections by the bottle such as Heineken, Stella and Blue Moon, along with some Spanish and German wines, including a 2014 Spanish cabernet sauvignon and a 2015 German Riesling.

All wine is sold for $6 by the glass and beer ranges from $4 to $7 a bottle.

However, the goal is to bring in several local brews, says the owner. 

“I just hope selling beer and wine doesn't change the lounge’s vibe,” said Palagye. “This is a coffee house first, not a bar” 

Harold’s Coffee first opened across the street in 2011, then moved into its current, more spacious building that includes a lounge, front porch and backyard patio.

BOULDER, Colo. — Colorado was no place to live — at least not for the miners who’d gone looking for gold in the Front Range section of the Southern Rockies. “The mountains were too rough and the plains looked too much like a desert,” The Daily News of Denver wrote in 1882. “Men came with the view of making fortunes...

Have you forgotten all about pinot grigio during this summer of rosé?

Here in this glorious summer of rosé, pinot grigio is the odd wine out. It’s not as decisive as sauvignon blanc. It’s not as controversial as chardonnay. It’s the sort of wine one is served on Ladies Drink Free Night at Italian restaurants, cold and inexpensive and a little bit tasteless. Since there is no such thing as bad...
