You can try intimate.

Intimate- characterized by or suggesting an atmosphere conducive to privacy or intimacy; warmly cozy


The little coffee shop had a very intimate atmosphere, making it easy to conduct deep, personal conversations for hours on end.

You could also use comfy.

The comfy coffee shop was a great place to have private conversations.

    Also, [snug] (merriam-webster.com/dictionary/snug). As in, We enjoyed New Year's eve in the snug coffee shop across the street. – BiscuitBoy Jan 1 '16 at 10:23
  • Somewhere like a coffee shop could be cosy without being comfy. A warm (literally and figuratively) atmosphere but hard chairs facing each other over tiny tables would be one example. – Chris H Jan 1 '16 at 18:36

If this is for some formal school project or an essay, I would go with intimate or snug and avoid comfy as it is informal. Otherwise, it is all good.

Homey, homely, snug, or commodious are words that can be used, in addition to comfy and intimate.

  • 'Homely' means ugly in AmE, so don't use that in the US. – Mitch Jan 24 '19 at 15:04
