Espresso, Little Creatures, Fremantle

There seemed to be a service area next to the coffee machine.

"Can I order a coffee here? Or at the bar?"
"Sorry mate, it's table service only."

Ehem. I thought I'd be saving them some service time by ordering at the bar. Especially so, considering the strange payment method. After you order at the table:

"Would you like to start a tab, or do you want to settle that now?"

Unless your whole table can agree on one person's credit card that will become the tab, you'll need to settle straight away. This requires the waiter to take another two trips to the till and back. Wouldn't it be so much easier to just let me order at the bar? You can order all the other drinks at the bar!

Presumably, table service attracts more tips. Oops.
