Places for after-work coffee, snacks, etc?

By Dacquiri - 12 February 2008 23

I’m often (like now) looking for a place to meet a friend or two after work over a coffee or two and pre-dinner snacks.  Not a restaurant or cafe where you’re expected to buy a meal, not a bar (although being able to get a beer would be OK) and not a grotty take-away.  Most of the coffee shops seem to close by 5.30pm, which sort of leaves Starbucks & the odd place like Edgar’s. Where can you go for a couple of hours in the early evening that has accessible parking, decent coffee, a bit of atmosphere and something other than weight-inducing stuff like garlic bread, potato wedges & nachos.  Suggestions please?

What’s Your opinion?

And here I was just thinking that Beppe’s @ Belconnen Markets (great coffee & other yummy stuff) is exactly the sort of place that needs to be open every day until late.

Carlo is not around as much to be hands on…
best coffee in business hours would be at belconnen market’s ORGANIC shop.

Yeah, too bad about Carlos, which also has no regard for OH&S. New little place in Watson looks interesting but seems to be pretty much a day-time operation. As for the ‘coffee’ thing, that’s s/hand for ‘non-alcoholic drinks’. Bar scene is too weird if you’re over 40, and don’t need the alcohol when we’re responsible for our own car & motorbike transport. (There should be an ACCC investigation into bar & club prices for soft drinks.) For what it’s worth, I also seem to hang out with people who appreciate good coffee at any time of the day or night. However…friend I needed to get together with this time has just gone back to his RAMSI thing in the Sollies for another 4 mo.
