    we'll

    Is there any difference in meaning between "we'll(1)" and "we'll(2)"?
    1. If you have time, call me and we'll do dinner.
    2. We'll get the cakes for the coffee morning tomorrow, Jane.

    re: we'll

    No. They are both contractions of we will.

    No. What makes you think there might be a difference?

    Re: we will

    While we're asking questions, what is "coffee morning tomorrow"?
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    Re: we will

    Is that an actual phrase? Like "cocktail hour"?

    Not exactly like "cocktail hour", Barb. Here is an example of a charity coffee morning in the UK: World's Biggest Coffee Morning - cancer charity coffee morning event - Macmillan Cancer Support

    Yes, it's a common phrase in BrE.
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.

    Re: we will

    As you may have guessed, I was unfamiliar with the phrase and wondered if the OP has mixed up "tomorrow morning" with "morning tomorrow."

    Thanks for the edification.
