That's excellent. I have experienced cafeteria line style and, in my opinion, 
it doesn't work well at all for a variety of reasons. Can expand if needed.

Ah. In our community we DON'T serve buffet or cafeteria line style, we
serve family-style with serving dishes on each table. So everybody comes
in and sits down, may start to chat or serve kids' plates but when the
bell rings everybody is quiet and the announcements, blessing etc.

Everyone here is SO trained to be quiet and look at the front of the
room when that bell is rung...
