    make do with x settle for

    Are there any slight differences between:
    - We'll have to make do with a coffee
    - We'll have to settle for a coffee?
    Which is more commonly used?
    Thanks

    Re: make do with x settle for

    "make do" would imply that you are accepting an alternative to something

    "settle for" would imply that you will be satisfied with something.
