Why Is It Always " Tea Or Coffee " ?

Could hardly sleep last night thinking about this. After dessert, why doesn't the waitress say " Coffee or Tea " ?
I think we should be told.

You must have little to worry about or be a bit thick if that's what keeps you awake at night.

Leave cardboard out of this - it tastes like pizza

Yeah it's nowhere near as high brow as a Eurovision thread.

There's a linguistic reason for that, don't know exactly which but it just sounds better and rolls off the tongue easier that way.

"Coffee and tea" is a bit awkward to say by comparison.

You might say instead...

Coffee?

Tea?

Of course, but then they're two separate phrases.

A phrase is a small group of words standing together as a conceptual unit, typically forming a component of a clause:

So "coffee?" "tea" are two separate words, as opposed to phrases.

Why do you never get served by waiters?
