The Coffee Garden (http://www.thecoffeegarden.com/) is a little coffee shop just off Broadway and 99. If the weather's nice, we'll probably be in the garden through the back door.
They serve all sorts of coffees and drinks, sodas, and a wide variety of sandwiches and salads perfect for dinner if you choose. They appreciate it if you at least buy a drink/pastry.
Please be courteous and do not bring outside food or drinks.
