How could a Coffeehouse be a blessing to your community?

I've been doing a little dreaming and thinking lately.  When we get this coffeehouse up and running, we want it to be an asset to GI.  We want to create community, and give people a reason to walk through the doors.  Have any of you heard of any cool ways to do that?  Here are my to thoughts, feel free to chime in with others. (IT'S OKAY TO MAKE COMMENTS HERE TOO).

-Maybe one day per week, coordinate with the public library and MOPS groups to bring their kids in at a certain time.  We could read a book to the kids while parents relax together w/a cup of coffee.

-This is an easy one, but a summer concert series.  We've got the connections to do something about every other week or so to start.  This is the kind of thing that you don't really see around our area.  I think it could be huge.

Make sure the coffee is good.

I know it sounds simple, but I've seen people try this kind of thing before, and while the place was cool and inviting, it didn't do that well in the one thing it should have.
