“Dear PoPville,

With the rise of fast casual and expanded carry out options, what’s the protocol on tipping? I notice most fast casual restaurants preset the payment system with tipping options (none, 15%, 20%, etc). Is there an expectation for tips for fast casual? What if they make you a coffee or a cocktail? Then what if you order carry out; do the same rules apply? I’m so confused!”
