I always buy food and drinks from restaurants . but I never buy drinks or snacks from the cafes because they are expensive .

I can't remember last time I went to a cafe, because it relates to over nine years ago.

Sometimes cause drinks in café are much more expensive

Can I say, 'Eaten here or take-away?' Thanks.

Hello Caterina Siligardi

'take away' or 'take out' are both commonly used. I'd recommend 'eat in' instead of 'eaten here'.

All the best

Many thanks, Kirk.

In my free time or weekend, I'd like to go to the mall or cafe with my friend. In a coffee shop or cafe, I usually order tea or matcha as a drink. But I seldom to order cake or brownies.

Hello everyone, i’m a barista and their costumer are very educated

I drink tea with cookies or biscuits because they can chill the mind and a refreshment in evening time.

Yes. But as a matter of fact, I am on a diet, so I bought drinks or snacks once a month. My favourite snacks and drinks in my schools' cafeteria are strawberry pie and raspberry soda or latte. That's because they are fit to my flavour which I love.
