Why not just use a library?

Look around and see what other people do? Some cafes with free wifi etc wont mind you studying there as long as you buy something every 60-90 mins. Others will want you to move on. Ive always studied at home or in the library.

I've been in Starbucks/Costa from the time they opened till the time they closed at 7/8pm to study. I bought a filter coffee for £1 and then got a refill at lunchtime, and they had no problem whatsoever with me staying to study. If you are a tea drinker, I'm pretty sure Starbucks do green tea/tea and it's not expensive either, I can't remember the price but it's from £1-1.50.

I don't like libraries because it's too quiet to study there, and also because you can't eat/drink in there and also because they close quite early at 5pm in my area. I can't revise at home because it's too loud and therefore rely on cafe's.

I think it will depend how busy a cafe is. If they're busy you need to buy something every 60 minutes or so. If they're quiet with lots of empty seats the staff probably won't mind if you drag your drink out for longer. I think you're perfectly fine to sit there with just a drink though.

The other thing is that you should not take up a 4 seater table or something if it's busy and there's only you.

Most cafés I see will ask you to leave fairly quickly if it's obvious that you're taking up a table/sofa to some work on and are just nursing a coffee for as long as you can get away with.

You know, most people fond it hard to revise at home because it is too loud, I just wear ear buds, blocks out all the noise in the comfort of my own home.
