Do it bother you when there is no table service at a cafe or restaurant, and you have to go and order and pay for your meal at the counter?

That is actually something that really does bother me as if there is no table service, the prices should be way lower than a cafe that does do table service.

But of course they never are!

It annoys me having to get up and order and pay for a meal as am just usually starting in a conversation and usually have to get up and order separately or you lose the seat you are in.

So, YES this annoys me, however it would not stop me going to a cafe or restaurant.

Don't you order before you sit down?
If it is somewgere like McCafe,where the prices are so much lower,NO! But if I am paying a higher price,then I expect table service as this is whole point of me going to such a place!!! Prett simple really! If I have to 'serve myself' I may as well do so at home and save a lot of m now very limited income!
No, it doesn't bother me at all, if it did I wouldn't use that sort of café!
The only times it can be a bit difficult is if I am on my own with my son and have lots of shopping bags, then trying to get him to stay in one place with the bags, keep an eye on him and order food etc OR keep everything with me then trying to carry the food and the bags to a table.... that can be tricky. But it only happens once in a blue moon so it's not really a bother.
Not any more, it's kind of the norm now.
I think you become less tolerant; in general as you get older but...no..it doesn't bother me to a great extent, there are far more important things that worry me...

I really hate it, no idea 'who' would come up with the idea,but it is tacky at best.
If I eat out, I want to be waited on....just good manners if nothing else.
no idea how 2 answers came up?

No. I find a lot of places that supposedly offer table service don't really have enough staff on to do that properly so you can sit there for ages waiting for them to come and take your order. I'd rather just order at the counter and know that someone's making my food than sit at a table waiting or someone to notice me.
It doesn't really bother me, though I do prefer table service that's for sure.

I don't mind if there is no table service. Sometimes it's better when there isn't because there have been times that we have waited ages before our order is taken

None whatsoever!
Frequent quite a few non-table service Coffee Shops!
Still get good food & excellent Coffee!
