Cafes are the ideal location for a first date. There's very little pressure since it's such a relaxed environment to begin with, and plus it's way cheaper than taking them out for, let's say, a lobster dinner.
If you're looking for some laid back date locations that are still super impressive and classy, why not check out one of these cute little cafes? Even if they date ends horribly, at least you got some good coffee out of it. Maybe even a pastry too, if you're really lucky.
