automats

When my granny was a youngster, she used to work at an automat café in Copenhagen. In the 1980s, when I was a kid, I remember seeing a few of those machines around, usually outside bakeries and open sandwich shops. By then, however, they were just relics of time past and no longer in use. And yet I remember finding them kind of fascinating and exciting.

Can we bring them back, please? Not necessarily in a sci-fi Japanese form and shape, but more in its traditional form? So that you can choose between different kinds of layered cakes and pies?

And speaking of automats, have you heard of the Swap-o-matic? Such a cool project:O)
