quiet place for coffee, mid-morning weekday Union Square area
I know I posted something like this before, but that time I
was taping a conversation and needed someplace extremely quiet
(every place I went was too noisy, so I ended up meeting
and taping in my building lobby).
This time I am not taping or interviewing, just having a mid-morning social/business coffee get together and want someplace
comfortable, a tad upscale (NOT a Starbucks, not Joe) and not crazy busy. Is the Max Brenner place nuts on a weekday morning at 10AM or so? Marquet is ok, but really would like more comfortable seating than that.
I need someplace more upscale and comfortable... it's gonna last an hour or so. Flatiron area
or Gramercy is good too. Thanks...
That's exactly the kind of place I had in mind, however,
I went in and checked with them this morning, and they
close from 10-12 on weekdays! You can have a beverage only in the
lobby area, bu that gets so traffick-y. But
along the lines of that restaurant, yes. It's the early hour
that's the stickler.
Thanks, I went in there, but it's really not appropriate for
this meeting. This person is going to be very dressed up
for his whole (corporate) day of meetings. If anyone can think
of something like Olives (tablecloths, banquettes, silverware,
cappucino machine far from the ears, air conditioned... ), please post. Otherwise, I will try Le Pain Quotidien. I very much appreciate all the suggestions.
How about T-Salon at 11 E 20th? Comfortable, cozy, upscale enough, good tea, good food, opens at 10am.
