There is, indeed, an SSH for PalmOS, TopGun SSH
(http://www.ai/~iang/TGssh/ , ftp://ftp.zedz.net/pub/crypto/palmpilot/ ,
http://linuxmafia.com/pub/palmos/ ). But getting PPP service on the
cybercafe machine's serial port is unlikely.
On the other hand, plugging in your laptop to an available ethernet port
fits the bill perfectly. If permitted. If not, you have a problem.

Good luck getting permission to install software onto a typical cybercafe
machine. On the other hand, you might be allowed to reboot one of them
temporarily to a bootable business card (assuming you're willing to
trust the hardware).
On the whole, the laptop's your best bet.
(Yrs. truly had six years' residence in the CoffeeNet building to ponder
this exact problem.)
