Increasingly, professionals are using cafes as a separate space to work, but there are some inherent concerns with sitting in a coffee house while on the clock.

    Some pluses you haven't talked about include:
    - Coffee shops do provide the vital face-to-face environment and helps relax the scene when you are trying to engage and bring people along.
    - helps build relationships and trust in a relaxed environment
    Both the above are critical elements when trying to influence and negotiate with people

    It depends very much on the nature of the meeting. I am a PR consultant and there is often a requirement for a casual meeting be that with clients, the media or suppliers. I think we are should all know when a private space is required and when a more public space is the go.
