President Obama stopped for lunch in Rochester, N.Y., on Thursday at a little deli called Magnolia’s, double-tipping on the already added 20 percent gratuity.

The president reportedly ate a grilled cheese sandwich and some cream of tomato soup, TMZ first reported. Mr. Obama also bought lunch for his Secret Service team.

A copy of Mr. Obama’s receipt reveals his total bill for nine people was $89.84. The restaurant added a 20 percent tip for the large party, but the president gave an additional $30 — a 52 percent tip.
