Hi,
You will just require a standard phone line, and then you can get the broadband installed on that.
There are a number of people who will specialise in wifi hot spots, you can do it yourself, but then you may have some liability issues over who uses the wifi.
You could even look at BT Business as I think some of their services can also have a wifi hotspot as standard.

You could purhase a linksys router and use DDWRT firmware on it that will allow you to split your connection for your users at your coffee shop.

30 minutes free for visitors, and BT Fon people can access for free. ~£50 for the Fon Spot, and it uses tunneling to protect your local network

What liability issues?

Run a hot spot and keep logs of who used connection / when. If you ever get anything through then you have the logs.

If you're really paranoid then fork out for IPreadtor!
