I’m meeting up with a group of friends (approx. 5-7 people) next Monday night and I have no idea where to go. We’re looking for a quiet place that doesn’t need to be incredibly private, but if it had an alcove of sorts, it would be nice. Preferably a location that is low-key and does not serve alcohol. I’m thinking about all of our coffee shops, but I’m not sure what they are like in the evening and, being a non-coffee drinker, I haven’t visited them all to see which environment might work best.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance!January 31, 2013 at 2:05 am #783779January 31, 2013 at 2:13 am #783780
C&P coffee. They serve beer and wine as well as coffee, but it’s an afterthought really. It’s a quiet and fantastic meeting place with a small side room that offers slight separation from the main area.
Oh, and great coffee.January 31, 2013 at 2:27 am #783781
Chaco canyon has a whole back room that they say can be reserved for the community. Parking can be a total PITA though!January 31, 2013 at 3:32 pm #783782
I like Freshy’s but the last time we had a meeting there they were playing pretty loud music.January 31, 2013 at 4:30 pm #783783
All the places suggested so far serve alcohol.
Maybe Uptown Espresso? I haven’t been there in a few years, but I don’t remember them serving alcohol.January 31, 2013 at 5:31 pm #783784
Uptown doesn’t have a quite spot and gets really busy in the evenings since it has the big tables and stays open until 10pm.January 31, 2013 at 7:48 pm #783785
Uptown espresso on Delridge is where i would go. Much more quiet than the one on Erskine. I used to do my homework there and i think there is a small room you could use.January 31, 2013 at 8:31 pm #783786
Unfortunately, I think the Delridge Uptown Espresso closes much earlier (like 6pm). And if you decide to go to C&P, check their schedule on the website first to make sure there’s no music scheduled. We did a WSB meetup once there and forgot to check, and couldn’t talk over the music.January 31, 2013 at 8:42 pm #783787
Caffe Ladro on Calif south of the Morgan Junction might be a good choice. No alcohol, a sort of a nook in the back with couches. I think they are open late, easy parking, no live music.January 31, 2013 at 11:51 pm #783788
Wow! Ask and you shall receive! Thanks everyone for the recommedations. I will check them out this weekend. I am really behind on my coffee shop knowledge!February 1, 2013 at 1:30 am #783789
Sugar Rush/Coffee to a Tea (I’m not sure what name they decided on, but they’re next to Next to Nature, the pet supply store in the Junction, west side of California)–lots of out of the way space (esp in back) and delicious goodies; also Cupcake Royale always has people working in there and quite a bit of seating, pretty quiet as well, tho no nooks.February 1, 2013 at 2:54 am #783790February 1, 2013 at 5:00 am #783791
Oh thanks! I was in there the other week and saw a new sign, but couldn’t for the life of me remember what it said–their website still has the old versions.February 1, 2013 at 6:21 am #783792
