This may be a tough one:
I'm looking for a quiet place where I can get a bite to eat, coffee, tea etc AND do some paperwork.
Little or no background music but background conversation is just fine...
I would like a place where I can (quietly) discuss, with one other person, song lyrics, spread out the dictionaries and writing papers.
Yes, there are the Second Cups and Starbucks.. Which are the best and are there other places?
