A co-worker is introducing me and a buddy of mine to two of her friends. So where should we meet up? We don't want to go to a bar, and would also like to avoid Starbucks and the other chain coffee shops. I really like Higgleys on Foothill in La Cresenta, but's a little to far out of the way. Any other cool but not too trendy coffee shops around? Or maybe a restaurant that has good appetizers? We just really want someplace that is pleasent but low key.
