    Ask what's on the sandwiches to avoid a surprise. The smokehouse turkey panini is good but didn't care for the mystery goop on it

    If you want a clean table you will have to hunt someone down then hunt again and again. Disgusting, I hope they keep the kitchen cleaner.

    If you want to drink ice-water an prefer a larger cup than the ones available by the soda fountain, ask a clerk for a larger cup for water. They almost always oblige!

    When buying a bagel, there is a secret - get your bagel "bread sliced" - you'll get far more surface area for the spread of your choice.
