[He is likely to finish this work in the hour that we will spend talking in the cafe. ] my own writing.

Does 'the hour' followed by a relative clause always mean 'one hour or so'?
Can it mean much more than one hour?
for example, "we will spend 5 hours or so talking in the cafe
and he will finish this work during that time."

    If you can’t (or don’t want to) be specific about the exact time it’s going to be you can say:

    He is likely to finish this work during the time that we will spend talking in the cafe.
