What's the etiquette of working at a coffee house?

Believe it or not, I havenít worked in a coffee shop before. I have studied in one as a student but pretty much everyone there was a student so never felt weird.

So, Iím not talking about a full 8 hour day, but Iím going to be in DC next month and Iím going to need to log on for a couple hours. Iíd really rather not do it from my hotel room and while the hotel bar seems tempting, I might end up sending an email Iíd regret!

So, is it fine to just order an iced coffee and maybe a pastry and just work away for a couple hours? None of this will be difficult work, I need to respond to emails and run a couple of spreadsheets that a 5 year old could do and thereís nothing at all thatís classified or confidential.
