Where is a budding entrepreneur to meet with their prospective customers? Apparently Starbucks or Barnes and Noble will not cut it.

I recently came upon several columns from different publications urging home-based entrepreneurs to find creative places to have business meetings with their clients. In one publication, an entrepreneur, John N. from Tacoma, Wash., said he meets with clients in a diner down the street from his home-based office.
He and his clients talk business over stale coffee and grilled cheese sandwiches. “It’s not the best scenario,” he said, “but it’s cheap and my clients don’t seem to mind.” In fact, many professionals agree with John and say small-business owners should take advantage of cheap public spaces to handle client meetings.
