How many times have you ordered coffee or tea in a restaurant, and one of you wants milk and the other wants cream? Usually, they come back to the table once or twice with either 2 pitchers or 1 pitcher of milk and a bowl of plastic creamer shots.
Major props to the Park West Diner out in Wayne, NJ. My friend Gary and I ordered hot tea and - without asking - the lady brought one small saucer with a Milk vessel surrounded by little Creamers. Just like a NJ diner to do it right - eliminated a conversation and one trip to the table. Go Jersey!
