Serviettes in cafes. Pointless.

Recommended Posts

It seems to be getting more common. This morning I called in a cafe for a coffee and chocolate cake.

The waitress brought the cake over to the table with the serviette underneath.

What is the point of this? To get to the serviette I had to move the cake which meant creamy chocolate all over my hands and a serviette that was as much use as a £5 watch. Also bits of damp serviette were stuck to my cake meaning 20% of it going to waste.

Why do cafes do this. What is wrong with serving food on the plate and putting the serviette alongside. Is this some new fangled nonsense from the continent?

Perhaps it is to minimise washing up - they hope the sticky gunge will end up on the disposable serviette rather than the plate?

 

It's daft, I agree. And you can't find a café with decent silver cake forks for love nor money.

You should've eaten the serviette

That would depend on which Internet site you are on.

The proper way surely should be the dolly on the plate and then the serviette separately ? To be honest, sometimes I don't trust the people who wash the plates. Maybe they know this and put it on a serviette instead ? I know that in Starbucks sometimes their plates are a bit icky. Eek.

 

Sometimes it is best to pretend I did not see it. Ick.

The cafe will/should still wash the plate after it's been used tho, so it's really not saving any washing up time whatsoever.

You saying she's fat?

 

No idea, alarm bells ring when women talk about cake. One thing then leads to another.

 

The fatter they get, the more often they cut their hair. Until they cut it so much they just look like a fat bloke.
