Pineapple Grove Arts District: 5 Local Businesses We're Proud To Share

5 local pineapple grove businesses

Pineapple Grove is one of the most beloved districts of Downtown Delray Beach. With the most vibrant arts community, boutique shops and restaurants, and perhaps more color to be found than anywhere on the Ave. - Pineapple Grove is a favorite for locals and visitors alike. With new additions like The Ray Hotel and the adjacent Old School Square on its southern reaches, there are so many more reasons to visit and stay in Pineapple Grove. As locals, we don't often rent rooms at The Ray, but we're quite well-versed in the little nooks, cafes, art hovels, and local businesses we're proud to support and recommend. Read on to learn more about some of our favorite local businesses in the Pineapple Grove Arts District!

The Coffee District

Founded by a family of Korean immigrants well over a decade ago, The Coffee District is one of the legacy businesses of Pineapple Grove. While entities like The Ray Hotel and Arts Garage permeate this visually splendid area, The Coffee District has been a gathering place that locals have loved for years. Whether it's their delicious breakfast snacks, handmade coffees, and lattes, or their craft beer bar, The Coffee District is a beautiful place for locals to enjoy day and night, whether seeking a fresh cup in the morning or an adult beverage to wash down with the game.

Bedner's Farm Fresh Market

Bedner's Farm Fresh Market is a quaint offering of old-time Delray Beach. This delightfully colored building rests on the edge of Lake Ida Rd. and Artists Alley, a road that cuts through Pineapple Grove flanked by art galleries, workshops, and another of our favorite businesses (see below.) Bedners brings locally grown fruits and vegetables from their farm in West Delray, along with handmade and locally sourced goods such as chips, dressings, canned goods, and other local artisanal food products. This little storefront is known for its perfect blend of delectably sourced local foods and a wide selection of staples, making it a surefire option for game day, a family meal, or any reason to enjoy fresh produce.

The Arts Garage

The Arts Garage is a catch-all centrifuge for thespians, musicians, visual artists, comedians, and would-be troubadours with a full slate of scheduled performances year-round. Whether it's a touring comedienne, a Santana Tribute, or an open mic, The Arts Garage is a major reason why Pineapple Grove has become such a hotspot for art and design. Seated on one of the most visible intersections in Downtown Delray Beach, The Arts Garage is a slice of urban ingenuity and an essential creative outlet for the many young artists in the area.

the grove restaurant

The Grove

One of several upscale restaurants found in Pineapple Grove, the aptly named Grove restaurant is renowned for its sleek contemporary decor, high-end quality cocktails, and a delicious menu that changes depending on seasonal and available ingredients. The brainchild of native Floridian Chef & Sommelier Michael Haycook, this phenomenal locale has been the perfect place for an intimate date, wine with friends, or a chill night out in one of the most vibrant and enlightened districts of Delray Beach. For wine enthusiasts, enjoyers of curated seasonal fare, or just anyone looking for a lovely meal in an exciting part of town, The Grove is one of many but one that we chose to proudly illuminate in our first tribute to Pineapple Grove's best businesses.

3rd and 3rd

3rd & 3rd

Update: Unfortunately, after years of serving the locals. 3rd & 3rd is now closed.

Last but very far from least, 3rd & 3rd is a nondescript teal building at the intersection of... 3rd & 3rd. This beloved tavern is a haven for locals looking to avoid the cram of Atlantic Avenue during the season,  a time in which the gaggle of collegians and the families of 5 over-occupy many of our local favorites. Nonetheless, 3rd & 3rd allows for locals to enjoy live music, fantastic craft cocktails, and a resplended beer menu with numerous local favorites.
