What's the least you'd order in a sit down restaurant?

I've had this happen w/ a few groups--people will want to go to a restaurant for a cup of coffee, glass of wine or even share a dessert among a few. A couple of have said they'd just accompany and not order anything. I've always refused to go because it seems wrong to tie up a table for that but I'm always the odd person out. It's not Starbucks! What's the least you'd feel comfortable ordering? An appetizer? A shared entree?
Depends on the place. A diner, I've (well, in the past) just ordered fries and coffee and sat with my book.
Granted, I wouldn't do that on a Sunday morning!
A nicer place, I've had a couple apps and a drink or two. But not by myself - when others at the table are ordering fuller meals.
A couple of appetizers and a beverage. I actually do this once in a while when dining solo....I'll get a crock of onion soup, an appetizer (usually a salad topped with chicken/salmon) and an iced tea.
Never just dessert/coffee.
