COFFEE HOUSE. A necessary house. To make a coffee-house
of a woman's ****; to go in and out and spend
- The Devil's Dictionary (Ambrose Bierce)
Cof"fee*house` (?), n. A house
of entertainment, where guests are supplied with coffee and other
refreshments, and where men meet for conversation.
The coffeehouse must not be dismissed with
a cursory mention. It might indeed, at that time, have been not
improperly called a most important political institution. . . .
The coffeehouses were the chief organs through which the
public opinion of the metropolis vented itself. . . . Every man
of the upper or middle class went daily to his coffeehouse
to learn the news and discuss it. Every coffeehouse had
one or more orators, to whose eloquence the crowd listened with
admiration, and who soon became what the journalists of our own
time have been called -- a fourth estate of the realm.
- Webster's Unabridged Dictionary (1913)
