Northwood news: Harold’s Coffee Lounge adds beer and wine to its menu

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.

Best Bites: Triscuit Fig & Honey crackers

Some crackers are meant for snacking, some are meant for cheese. Some, like the original Triscuit, are great for both. One of Triscuit’s newest flavors, Fig & Honey, is meant for cheese. Lightly sweet, and with an even lighter hint of fig, these crackers would be superb with creamy cheeses (I had them with brie) or cheese with fruit, such as...
