|Proposal status:||Canceled (inactive)|
|Definition:||Describes which kind of serving system is offered at the place.|
|Rendered as:||Not rendered|
This tag can be used to describe the available serving systems in a restaurant, fast food joint, cafe or other kind of place that sells food for direct consumption.
The tag will be serving_system:a=b, where a is the serving system type, and b is the tag's value (see #Values below)
Although it is largely irrelevant to specify the serving system of a restaurant, there are some unusual serving systems that are worth tagging.
It can be used with most places that offers food, including amenity=restaurant, amenity=fast_food and amenity=cafe.
The values are yes, no and service times, where
- yes means "there is such a serving system in this place";
- no means "there is not..";
- and service times uses opening_hours=* syntax to represent when this option is available (it should be used only when this option is not available whenever the place is open).

Food in vast amount and vast variations placed in the middle of the table, guests help themselves at will.
I cannot hope to possibly enumerate all present and future serving systems, therefore the key value of this tag is declared open-ended, i.e. use other values as needed.
Please use the talk page for discussion.
