It all depends on what was discussed with regard to things each other enjoys. Generally speaking the first meeting should be during the daylight hours and in a public place. That leaves a lot of places available (parks, beaches, large bookstores that have Starbucks in them...etc)
Most people choose to meet in a casual place where there is some type of food or drink service because it helps them to relax. When people relax they tend to be "themselves". A meeting (just to talk) would be too much like an interview. Not many people would walk away feeling like they had a good time. Dating is suppose to be fun!
