Subculture Coffee in Delray Beach 'forced to close’ 


Trendy Subculture Coffee Roasters suddenly closed its Delray Beach location Monday, two years after its opening on Atlantic Avenue.  According to statement posted on the shop’s door and the company’s Facebook page, owners are looking for a new location. 

The statement suggested the shop, co-owned by restaurateur Rodney Mayo and master coffee roaster Sean Scott, was evicted, squeezed out by the consequences of the dining district’s wild popularity.  

“After a [two-year] battle with our landlord over a small technicality in our lease, we are being forced to leave and find a new location. Unfortunately along with the dramatic increase in property values in Delray comes greedy landlords looking for any excuse to kick out existing tenants despite them paying rent on time,” said the message on Subculture’s Facebook page.

The coffee shop know for its free-spirited and artsy feel stood at 123 E Atlantic Ave., on the strip once dominated by indie shops and businesses. 

Subculture Coffee West Palm Beach at 509 Clematis St. remains open as usual.
