I have 2 suggestions off the bat:
1. Finn McCool's 2702 Main St., Santa Monica [masked]
Irish pub with big windows, the best garlic fries and, of course, beer & coffee (Irish or otherwise).
If we meet there at 3pm Sunday, they shouldn't be too upset about us hogging a table in the back
as long as we all order SOMEthing, and of course, tip our server accordingly.
2. Lula's Cocina Mexicana 2722 Main St., Santa Monica [masked]
Just 2 doors down from Finn McCool's and owned by the same lady. Our favorite Mexican place on the Westside.
There's a place in Culver City called BottleRock (will look up the address & phone #)
Never been here, but I have a menu; beer, wine, teas, espresso, salads & sandwiches (you can buy 1/2 sandwich)
I will call a number of other places that I have in mind. Usually, Sunday is one of the busiest days for restaurants (ie: they wouldn't want us taking up a table or two for 2-3 hours, especially if we're just having drinks), but 3pm should not be so difficult. Almost all the coffee houses I can think of are java and tea only.
Will send you my complete list by Saturday at the latest.
