Not sure if this goes in food and drink or general chit- chat. Kind of fits both

We have a little bit of a running joke here in California. If you ever need to find witnesses or missed meeting for service you can always find the friends at 7-11 at 11, OK sometimes 10.30 and sometimes its McDonald's. I know its like that other places too or so I've heard

What is everyone's favorite service pit stops? and favorite service snack

If i had a dunkin donuts here, I would say that would be the place, but since I don't I'll say 7-11, McDonald's and Del taco

Favorite service snack would be donuts or fig newtons

7-11 sounds like a long service break!

In the town where I came into the truth there was a games machine arcade (I know, gambling machines!) and at the back of the games area was a cafe. It had a back entrance too, so you didn't have to go in through the front door and past the gaming machines. (Imagine a VERY small casino, but just coin machines.)

The brothers would go in the back door to the cafe and have a break :tea: ( or sometimes lunch break as you could get a cheap hot meal there too)! :eat:

The name of the establishment was "Noble's" - so you can imagine the scripture that was often brought out!

Almost every day the pioneers would be found there having a coffee/tea break or lunch. Were they putting their trust in it? :shrugs:

that must have been nice. Service stops by the sea. Those would be my kind of stops just to stop and for business territory too. Service and shopping. Can't beat that. I might get distracted and walk around too much though.

One time growing up I went with a few other sisters on a bus route. That was like our whole day. We rode the bus all the way to the beach, walked around , had an amazing brownie sunday that you have to share because it was so huge and rode the bus the whole way back. Of course I got the one person who decided to ride the whole way there and witnessed the whole time. but on the way back I was rather exhausted from that first person. so took it a little easier on the way back, but it was an interesting day to say the least

7-11 is the shortest version of a bread. Run in. Get coffee and snack. run next door to mcdonalds use restroom and back on the road again. That sounds like a fun little place. It must have been hard for kids in service to not run to the machines. LOL

I just got this! I assume you're joking, do they not have those in the UK?

Evidently not. What is a 7-11? (Just saw Lynn's comment about it being a mini-mart). I've never heard of a 7-11.

In films I saw the US had 'five and dimes', but even that is a mystery to me.

A good example of the language "difference". 7-11 is a convenience store chain (not sure of the British term if there is one).

Nothing can be bought with five or ten cents these days. But in the past a store like this would sell a variety of items that were really cheap.

Thanks for that explanation, Rick. In the UK we have 'corner shops' and I imagine that in some places there are small chains of them, but I don't know of a chain that would be recognised nationally. I am not active enough to qualify for a coffee-break, though. It is all I can do to spend a half-hour in the door-to-door work, so I will have to ask the pioneers what they do in my congregation.

Some years ago when i was pioneering, I worked along with a brother (now moved to the Albanian group) and we would go to a small cafe for a break. We had our own nicknames for the different cafes, so you wouldn't recognise them if I said them!

Just to add to Rick's reply, instead of five and dime stores, now we have dollar stores. In the day at a dime store, one could actually get quite a few items for a nickel or a dime but it was not limited to a nickel or dime. Today we have dollar stores in which nothing in the store is over one dollar.

We have 7-11's in Canada but they are regular convenience stores with chips, chocolates,

slushies,magazines and grocery-store items.

I have never seen seats were you can stop and enjoy a coffee in any or our 7-11's

Do they have seats in yours? or do you Americans sip your drinks in your cars??

I don't really know for sure. They don't have any in my area, strangely enough. I don't think they have seats here though, you just buy stuff and go. Normally we sit down on break but we go to McDonald's, Starbucks, Panera Bread, and so forth. EDIT: Not normally all in one morning though, LOL! Edited by Greenfield

I don't know what they put in there coffee but it sure is addictive...

Pure bliss is what they put in it, especially when it's -30C and you just wish the day was over and you haven't even gotten started yet. It's adrenalin in a cup, designed for 17 hour days......

The hot chocolate is great too, especially with whipped cream!!!

What part of Canada are you in Neil? I'm in Alberta.

Our 7-11's are just buy and go mini-markets with no seating area. They do have fresh donuts and a variety of coffee, as well as a variety of items for breakfast or lunch that must be nuked. I don't know any of the friends that use them for breaks as we have so many small diners, bakeries and bagel shops with seating area.

I'd highly recommend seeing the peace river valley, and going further west to British Columbia......banff, jasper all beautiful places. My husband and I were hoping to get out east someday and see some of the sights inherent to Nova Scotia and New Brunswick (the appalachians basically)
