This rating is in relative terms to the scene in South Florida. Chung and his staff do the best with what we get down here. In fact, sometimes if the distributor only has one keg of a special release, Chung gets it. The food is basic but very tasty. The staff is attentive and friendly. It has limited seating, but that’s sparks a very interactive atmosphere on tasting nights. As a matter of fact, the only draw back is the 20 mile drive back home.
A small coffee shop with 16 taps and 100+ bottles of beer. While it isn’t a regular bar, Chung does a great job bringing in great, new beers into the area. Most of the food items are geared towards the coffee side, but many go along great with your beer. If you want some great coffee and beer, the Coffee District is where you should go to in Delray.
I’ve been going here for quite awhile. It’s just a bit off the main Ave in the up and coming Pineapple Grove area of Delray Beach’s downtown area. The place itself is very nice and clean. A little brighter than what you expect at night but not a big deal. The selection in bottle is great for what we can get down here. The taps are constantly rotated and they tend to get some of the more rare kegs that hit South Florida. Food is limited because they can’t have a full kitchen but their sandwiches are awesome. Chung and Melinda really know their beer and are extremely personable. Every Monday is a beer meetup where people bring rare beers to share. A must stop in South Florida. EDIT: They are now up to 18 taps! They get some pretty rare kegs in there.
Great bottle selection and a nice draft selection. The panini sandwiches are nice. The atmosphere is basic, but homey. Outdoor seating. Parking in the rear. Plenty of wines, espresso drinks and coffee. Great service. One flat screen television behind the bar. With all the taps and bottles, there’s no reason why a person would walk in here and not find a beer they absolutely love.
UPDATE: As of today CD’s draft selection has gone from 6 to 14 (with the possibility for 18). Chung always seems to get the rare kegs so this is excellent news for craft beer lovers in the area. I’m looking at S. Tier Chocolate and Gemini, Cigar City Batch 69, Bells Expedition and Double Cream, Dogfish Burton Baton ect...
RATING: A great relaxed place to sit down and enjoy good beer with people who understand and appreciate it. Chung, the owner is very knowledgeable and accommodating and the rest of the staff is friendly. The draft selection has improved greatly over when they first opened with a frequently rotating selection and they seem to carry most of the bottles that are available in the area. The food selection is small but the sandwiches and desserts are great.
Small place with a coffee house atmosphere, guess that’s obvious with the name and all. The beer selection is top notch and new stuff comes in on a weekly basis. 6 drafts that usually feature the rarer kegs we get in South Florida. Service always excellent and friendly, Chung, the owner, is always around, happy to talk beer and make you feel welcome. Sandwiches and salads are very good. If your looking for a bar bar it might not be your scene, but over all it’s a great place.
This is one of my go to bars that I frequent very often. In my opinion it is sort-a the hidden gem of craft beer in the local area. Coffee District is located just off Atlantic Ave in the heart of Delray Beach, specifically Pineapple Grove.
The Coffee District is home to over 120 different bottles of craft beer as well as 6 rotating tap selections that always lead me to the same question…How Did They Get This?!? They also have limited food offerings and a full coffee/tea bar. Starbucks eat your heart out!
Chung the Owner of the bar is just as much of a beer geek as the rest of his staff. Ultra friendly, everyone there is willing to educate, talk, and most importantly serve (21+ of course!) you some of the best beer available in the area. I have NEVER heard anyone complain about the service which they have received from Chung and his staff.
So to sum it all up; A small laid-back coffee shop and beer bar, located in the heart of Delray, fair prices, great events, great selection of beer (draft and bottle), and a friendly staff….Yep thats The Coffee District!
It was great to find this place. I’m not really into the Avenue that much, all that generic bullshit. This little place is a great find, and only a few blocks from the Avenue. The selection and prices are awesome. The staff is pretty awesome as well.
Stopped by here on a recent visit to S. Fl and I am glad I did. I went in on a Monday and it looks more like a coffee shop but there is a great bar with a great selection of beer. Happy hour is also a good deal. Chung is very friendly and once he knew I was on Ratebeer he let me know that they have tastings on Monday and offered for me to stay a bit longer to try some of the beers they had. Tried some of the hummus while watiing and it was good. Definitely a great place with friendly service and good selection of beers and would recommend it to anyone. Also big thanks to the Ratebeer guys for sharing.
