Should you tip at a buffet, fast food restaurant or coffee shop?


A recent question asked 'when dining out at a restaurant, how much of a tip do you leave?' Waiters and waitresses are usually paid less than minimum wage so they depend on tips. What about employees that are paid at least minimum wage? We tip the driver that delivers our pizza or Chinese food, but should we tip at a buffet? What about at a fast food restaurant or coffee shop? At a restaurant, wait staff serve us, attend to our needs and requests, and clean up after us to earn their tip. At a buffet, coffee shop or fast food restaurant we do a lot of these ourselves. If yes, how much?

    I was always taught that the word "TIPS" to be the acronym for "To Insure Proper Service" and it does. If you frequent any eating or drinking establishment and the servers know you to be polite and tip well, they will always go that little bit extra.
