I recently went to a very nice brunch at a very nice restaurant that served very good coffee in the tiniest cups ever. On top of that, the server was pouring the cups only about 3/4 full and was busy enough with other tables that we all sat around with empty cups for much of the meal.
The coffee was served from insulated carafes that were sitting on a table nearby. I considered asking if she would just leave the carafe with our table of 6 (5 of whom were drinking coffee) but since that's only something I've ever seen at IHOP or diner-type places I didn't know if it would have been rude. I'm interested to know what others think.
