It is to do with where you are (not country, place in the country).
If you are in a city it's actually more ruthlessly to-go than the US because western European cultures in general (excluding the Spanish and Portuguese) are very much 'get it done with and cry from the pain later' type cultures. On the other hand, Americans are much more 'find a way to always be working somehow' and the Russians have a very similar culture work-ethic wise. When I say 'cry later' I mean rest, relaxation etc, it's not a joke there's very huge emphasis put on genuinely getting time to rest and chill out and emphasis put on working until you drop while you do the work. This is also an extremely African ethos and this is because Africa got its work ethic and industrial culture from the Europeans that invaded.
Thus, if you are in a city during the day, you will find a ruthless culture of rushing to get the coffee ASAP and misery all around as this is actually a cultural joy of Londoners (the misery is how they show how hard they are working, employers genuinely don't like staff who are too happy or friendly in very urbanised areas of the UK and western Europe in general excluding Spain and Portugal (they have a much more love-life culture).
In contrast, in towns and more village-type areas of the UK, sit-in for a coffee shop is mandatory to last in the area, people love that shit as such areas are often filled with the elderly and/or tourists if it's by the coast. The same rule applies to all of Western Europe excluding Spain and Portugal.
I think Bsh1 was in a town and quiet area of Europe.
