Amid all the talk about Apple and Google's love affair gone sour, the companies' CEOs, Steve Jobs, left, and Eric Schmidt, were spotted by a Gizmodo tipster Friday afternoon on an apparent coffee date outside the Calafia Cafe and Market a Go Go in the Town and Country Village in Palo Alto, Calif.

Incidentally, that black item on the table is a menu, not an iPad, according to Gizmodo. And Calafia was opened in January 2009 by former Google chef Charlie Ayers.

Schmidt takes a sip

What they're talking about, of course, we have no idea. The tipster, according to Gizmodo, overheard two lines by Jobs: "They're going to see it all eventually so who cares how they get it?" and "Let's go discuss this somewhere more private." (The latter was reportedly said after they noticed a crowd gathering.)
