MENU

Sub­cul­ture Cof­fee is best known for java and mi­cro­brews, but the cof­fee shop also serves a va­ri­ety of sal­ads, sand­wiches and smooth­ies, along with gra­nola and acai bowls. The fo­cus is on healthy fare, and most items cost less than $10. A $12.50 cheese board is the prici­est plate. The beer tap is lo­cated on the op­po­site side of the café, where the cof­fee sales hap­pen.

AT­MOS­PHERE

Sub­cul­ture is a hip­ster spot where down­town denizens hang out to work or take a break. The set-up is ca­sual. You or­der at the counter, then wait a few min­utes for your food. There are ta­bles in­side and a few spots to sit 509 Clema­tis St., West Palm Beach, 561-318-5142 Sun.-Thurs., 7 a.m.-mid­night; F-Sat., 7 a.m.-2 a.m. out­side.

OUR FA­VORITE FOOD/PRICE

The lo­tus bowl ($8.95) — a salad with fresh greens and quinoa, av­o­cado, chick­peas and other top­pings — was a win­ner. We also liked the acai bowl ($8.95) and the smooth­ies ($5.95 each).

REA­SON TO GO

Quick, healthy food.

SER­VICE

Friendly and rea­son­ably quick. Our sal­ads, smooth­ies and acai bowl re­quired some prep time, so it wasn’t fast food.

NOISE LEVEL

Moder­ate. Busi­ness was bustling dur­ing our lunchtime visit, but the din­ing room was mostly quiet.

KID FRIENDLY

That de­pends on what your kids like, but there are plenty of choices and rea­son­able prices, so Sub­cul­ture should work for most fam­i­lies.
