Are there any cafes out there in the wild that have survived (or better, thrived) with a strictly enforced no-laptop, no-iPad (essentially, "no portable electronic offices") policy? I'm looking for reasonably well-documented examples of coffee houses that have bucked the student/mobile-office market and done well. The more it's presented as a business case, the better.

I'm a writer and I like to write in coffee shops. I'm looking for a coffee shop in DC. I live in Logan Circle and work downtown, but don't mind taking the Metro or a bus anywhere. I'm looking for something a little more low-key than Tryst. Any suggestions? I'd like free wi-fi and a graduate student vibe. No need for anything fancy. This is where I used to go when I lived in Philadelphia and I'd like to find something similar. Thank you!

Those high-rises in center city, Philadelphia: Are there coffeeshops in any of them? I want to spend less than $5 on a drink and then do some programming for a couple hours with an incredible view. In lieu of that, other ideas?

My home brewed coffee doesn't cut it anymore, and I want it to taste more like coffee shop coffee. What should I do? Suggestions for new coffee maker/grinder? [more inside]
