sure, you could get good speed... or you could get horrible speed... it depends on things like how fast the place's internet connection is, what kinda load is on the Wi-Fi network, how far you are from the access point, etc...
BTW, it's quite common to find open Wi-Fi access points all over the place in most big cities... "open" means the router/access point isn't configured to use WEP or WPA/2 for authentication/anti-snooping, so make sure you do your own encryption whenever you use an open access point to work with sensitive data... just my
