Have you ever stood behind someone that made you cringe by the way they speak to the barista or waitress? Have you ever been that person? We all have bad days.

Baristas are people too you know. A hello would be nice.
The owner of the cafe in question says mostly the menu board just gets people to smile, which in turn leads to them being that little bit more friendly when greeting the barista.
