Probably too late, but my wife just went to the new Panini Cafe and loved it
I just went yesterday. It seems they're still figuring things out, because they somehow lost my order, and I overheard the same thing happen to 2 other people, but they did give me a free slice of cheesecake without me saying anything which made me feel like they actually care about their customers, and even with that we didn't wait more than 15-20 minutes for our food. Interesting setup with waiters but they don't ask for tips, and you pay at the register.
I wonder what people who type "u" instead of "you" do with all their free time.

Sounds similar to Caffoteria but I don't think it's as fancy

Do you guys think UberEATS will let me have a restaurant listed without an actual physical presence? As in, a purely online/delivery restaurant that exists solely on UberEATS?

Yes.
Do you have reason to believe so? Know anyone who’s done it? What standards/research do they do?
