I think that's a great idea Bigali, I hope it catches on.  Most of them serve  herbal teas too which are very popular.

I really hope it flourishes, all my local coffee shops close about 5 pm.

It is a good idea Astor , the coffee shops around me are open until about 10pm and there are always plenty of people in them , and that's all week not just at weekends.

I do agree with what you're saying Stickie a coffee is a coffee is a coffee.

I have noticed in my neck of the woods (or as Tours is fond of calling it , the leafy suburbs) that in the evenings a lot of people are using the coffee shops for socialising and meeting friends as an alternative to going to the pub , I've even done it myself on a few occasions .
