Cafeterias are self-service eating establishments located in stations, airports, downtown areas and at schools and institutions.

Most cafeteria menus are limited, often changing from day to day. Customers line up, and then either order food from preparers or reach for already-prepared items like salads and desserts, putting the items on a food tray. The customer pays a cashier, and is not expected to give gratuities.

It is courteous at cafeterias to bring your tray and dirty dishes back to a centralized location for easier cleanup.
