Eat in various coffee houses (5)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

scoff

Here is my best explanation:

'eat' is the definition.

'in various coffee houses' is the subsidiary indication.

'in' indicates the answer is hidden within the clue.

'scoff' is hidden in the letters of 'various coffee houses'.

(Other definitions for scoff that I've seen before include "Deride - guzzle", "Devour (informal)", "Jeer; eat greedily", "Mock", "Speak scornfully; eat", "Speak derisively", "Ridicule - guzzle", "Eat greedily", "Jeer - eat quickly" and "Speak contemptuously or drink informally".)
