Any anecdotes regarding this?
I think it's atrocious... takes on average half an hour from taking your coupon to getting served.
Any ideas for an improved system? I'm going to mail them with the best suggestions and solutions so we can get this sorted once and for all.

You stand there for an hour and then one of the minions gives you an olive rye instead of the sunblushed tomatoe one that you asked for. What's with that?

Ah - I've just sussed it. You are not, in fact, talking about a modern arts complex in South London.

Not a bit of it.

You are, in fact, referring to our favourite Eastern European bakery.

Here's the trick - don't go between 12 and 2 unless you take a hefty victorian novel with you for company. Best time of all is 5.20 when you may be able to wangle a few end-of-day freebies if you catch the eye of one of the aged biddies behind the counter. Makes for a late lunch, I admit.

Be very very careful. I criticised the service at the Barbakan and they issued a fatwa on me. They were going to turn me into Liverwurst.
