Great, GREAT question. You should get extra points just for asking it.
Complicated of course. Generally, if we're talking about the United States, I would say no, it's not considered a date. On the other hand, a jealous spouse or sig. other WOULD call it a date, wouldn't they?
Depends on your ethnicity as well. A lot of Asians WOULD call it a date, I think, correct me if I'm wrong since I'm not Asian except for a little native American!.
Like a lot of people if I want to talk to a woman and I don't want her to think of it as a date I'll use the phrase 'let's go for coffee" even if we both know we're going to a restaurant or cafe where we'll probably have something substantial to eat.it definitely has a coded meaning in that context that is widely understood in the mainstream Anglo culture to mean precisely that:
we're going out together but it's NOT A DATE meaning nothing romantic is planned.
