  • Nothing.. every time i've ever tried to tip them they always tell me they are not allowed to accept tips. My own little cousin wouldn't let me tip her when I went.

  • Nothing. If I get table service, I'm happy to tip, but for selling me a cup of coffee when that's all you do? C'mon!

  • I might give my extra change but not much more unless they were extra helpful or something. I've worked in food service and such and I don't tip when they don't do anything beyond they're job.. If all they do is make your coffee exactly like every other coffee without even a friendly demeanor.

  • I asked my hubby this question and he said "If it is at a truck stop/restaurant and it is just coffee then it depends on how much he drinks, how long he is there and how good the service is. We don't do coffee stands." If it is coffee with a meal it is 15% of the bill.
