What would be a good way to ask a young woman to coffee?
Would “Veux-tu du café?” be correct?
I would like for it to sound casual. She's 20-something.

If you want to ask someone to go have coffee with you, the simplest way is probably to ask:
Veux-tu aller prendre un café?
Voudrais-tu aller prendre un café? (seems a little more hesistant)
You're asking if they want to grab a coffee. The part about sitting down in a coffee shop and talking is implied.
If you want to ask someone if they want a cup of coffee, like offering to get one or even pay for one, you can say:
Veux-tu un café?
If you're at home and have the means to make and/or pour coffee, you can ask if they want some coffee:
Veux-tu du café?
