“We’re comfortable with our customers snapping away. And we love it when they post their pics on Instagram, Facebook, and other social media outlets. We’re also rather flexible with phone-talking and texting, though most people typically do not talk on their cell phones while enjoying lunch or dinner at The Meatloaf Bakery. As for me, I love to text and share my dining experiences with others particularly if I’m dining alone. My phone is good company, though I don’t use it to talk as that can be distracting.”
