American cafes, service, and tipping

I don't understand why cafes, by-and-large, in the U.S. skip one of the most important parts of the experience; servers!

Cafes in Europe and Asia have folks


to the cafe tables, whether indoor or out, who take your order, and bus tables. However we don't have this in the U.S. I find it a strange


that we seem to have left it out of our culture.
