You do realise 'eatery' has been in use for about 120 years? Hardly a new word.

When I look up the origins it says it was first used in 1901 but I've only heard it in the past few years.
We have new ways of eating. A spar is not a restaurant or cafe for example. God bless progress.

The hot food counters in shops and garages couldn't be further from delicatessens.
