FIRST LOOK: Lakewood’s Cafotteria the First Restaurant in the Northeast to begin using Robots to Serve Customers [VIDEO]

When sitting down to a meal at Lakewood’s cafeteria, You might now be served by a robot.

The restaurant is the first in the Northeast to begin using robots to serve customers.

Watch as the kitchen staff place food on the robot, and send it to customers by typing in the table number on the robot.

When the robot senses the food has been removed, it automatically travels back to the kitchen for more work.

The company says they have installed approximately 1000 such robots across the United States, mostly being used by restaurants and senior living facilities.

  1. How do you tip the robots? With bitcoin?
    I once received an order from a robot in a different restaurant. I did not tip the robot, and the robot spilled my bowl of soup on my lap. I gave the robot an angry scowl, but it looked at me with a feigned look of innocence, as if to say, “Hey, I’m a robot without a mind. There’s no way I did that deliberately.”
    Of course, I knew this wasn’t true, but there was nothing I could do about it because I had no way of proving the act was deliberate.
    But I didn’t even know I was supposed to tip the robot, nor did I know HOW to tip the vindictive automaton.

  2. Dear asinine, just to notify you that you’re cry for help has been received. If your branding intention is to establish your severe lack of productive activity there are organizations to help you. You are not alone! Hashem loves you and will always be your Friend.

    • no no no embrace him, its godless. i at first also was like “this guy is such a can -of-corn” but once you accept him you begin to see what he’ll do next. try it trust me

      • I assume you are the light variety of mayo, which is okay with me because I like my mayonnaise watered down and more to the weak side.

    • Much appreciated. I have tried to reach out to various organizations, like the Society for Unproductive Misfits and the Center for Establishing Online and Offline Productive Activity, but they are not accepting any more applications. So, I’m still searching. However, with your encouragement, and with your assurance that G-D loves me and will always be my friend, I’m going to keep searching until I find a few productive acquaintances like you who are proficient in navigating this maze that is often referred to as “the Comment Section”.

  3. Instead of doing a straight run from the back to the front, it would be interesting to see how it would negotiate different aisles and what it would do if it were to encounter an obstacle such as a patron walking or a chair is ticking out a bit too far into the aisle. A server can shimmy by while at the same time recognizing a client was ready for desert or another drink.

    • Huh the store only sells michligs why would there be flieshigs?

      My question is can this replace waiters and if yes maybe this can reduce costs with labor so expensive?

  4. If I’m served by a robot, I will just stay home and make my own food. One reason people eat out (especially elderly) is to have some social interaction. Unless, of course, we can have a conversation with the robot it might work.
