I worry that asking a girl to coffee is going to be seen as a "weak" date.
Granted, the girl in question is aware I'm attracted to her, so is her saying yes to this one on one encounter a decent sign that she's also interested?

You know, "coffee dates" are actually one of my favorite dates to go on, especially if it's for the first time / the guy and I haven't been on too many dates to begin with. So I don't think it's a "weak" date at all. If you think about it, I actually believe that it's a pretty clever way to go and is also pretty fail-safe as well. With coffee dates there's less pressure than "dinner dates" and you're not expected to be dressed to the nines or anything like that. The atmosphere that it creates is also great since it tends to be more laid back and casual, which often times can help put both people at ease when it comes to their nerves. It also allows for both people to really engage in conversation, which is great since you don't get that with a lot of dates (ie. "movie dates") or other ones that are more activity-focused (ie. mini golf). Anyways, to sum up, I have a lot of female friends that feel the same way as I do in regards to going for coffee with a guy, a lot of them feel like it's more friendly and welcoming than other date activities per say.
As for your second question, if the girl in question is aware that you're attracted to her like you say, then from my perspective I think it's safe to guarantee that there's at least some mutual feelings on her end as well. So if I were you, I'd definitely take it as a positive sign. I'm not saying she has a definite crush on you or anything, but I think she's open to the possibility of you as potential relationship material if everything goes well and you guys click, or at least for the time being, a guy who she wouldn't mind going on a few dates with.
That's just my two cents :). Good luck on the coffee date though!0
