Yesterday I was watching this Korean drama called 'The girl who sees smells' . There was a scene where the hero and the heroine go to a coffee shop where each table is equipped with something like a buzzer so as to notify you when your order is ready. I wish we had something like this in my country so I can save the hassle of waiting at the counter. Do you have this kind device in your country ?

I am not sure I have that correctly. are you saying the cook has a bell to hit when the food is ready? If that is yes then yeah we do.

Not a bell. It's something like a buzzer that has digits. She types the table's number and the device on that table starts to vibrate in order to notify clients that their order is ready.

@houda28 Oh yeah I am pretty sure that is somewhere on central avenue here in Ny. I have to say it was about 8 years ago i learned of it. It was new to me since I never ate there before. But it was not on a counter but the table.

@sharon6345 Yes, they have a main device which is on the counter and the peripherals are placed on the tables.

I have never experienced that type of service here, but it does sound like a very good idea.

I know of a couple restaurants around here like that. One has a buzzer, one has a telephone that rings at the table, stuff like that.

I have never come across it here, but then again I do not frequent coffee shops anymore.
