    Whole Foods - They seem pretty used to seeing it.
    Jamba Juice - Cashier was suprised to see a watch used.

    Edit: I've tried at Subway, but they ONLY take it from the iPhone, not the watch. In fact, we crashed their register trrying to get the watch to work. I was told by the cashier that the current register units don't work with the watch and that updated models are expected soon.

    Oh, we have a Rubio's nearby that I sometimes eat at. I'll have to walk over and have fish tacos tomorrow.

    I use it everywhere. You would struggle to find somewhere in London that doesn't have contactless. Even my local 'mom n pop' corner shop has it.

    Local grocery store Cub Foods. That's the only way I pay there now. I keep trying it everytime I go to Home Depot but they still haven't reactivated and nobody seems to have any clue about it when I ask, though I've never asked a manager. Most people just don't know anything about contactless payments or "paying with your phone".

    Tried using it at Panera Bread and Babies R Us but couldn't get the Watch to register. I successfully use my iPhone, though. I just think there's a single point on the credit card reader's screen where the watch needs to be in order to read the NFC and I can't find it, and instead of slowing down the line I just grab my phone and it reads just fine.

    I can't wait to be able to use it at gas stations. I hate swiping my cards on readers that could be easily tampered with.

    I was traveling for the good part of the day and I went way too long without food. We had an hour to blow at a train station but all they had there were vending machines that only accepted coins or singles (I had neither). I was SOOOO happy when I realized I could use my watch to pay for snacks!!! It worked incredibly well. :)

    Do some places still make you sign?

    Gas stations would be great in the future.

    Pharmacies would be a big deal if it went beyond paying and you could sign for the Rx with your device and not have to use those digital pens everyone sick has used. :)

    Waitrose, Marks and Spencer, Mission Burrito, Pret A Manger, Boots, and Costa Coffee so far.

    Most shops seem to have contactless support so there're not many places where I've payed with chip and PIN lately. I don't have a contactless debit card so Apple Pay is much easier to use.

    When First Direct finally launches Apple Pay (next Tuesday, apparently), I'm going on history's greatest shopping binge.

    I use it regularly at Walgreens, Petco, Subway, and my local grocery store and occasionally at McDonalds. Tried it at a couple stores in a mall with contactless terminals but the clerks said "that doesn't work" (and they were right).

    (Oh, I forgot. I also used mine at Peet's Coffee.)

    Local pub - I wanted to see if it would work, it did, and so I ended up paying for the drinks instead of my husband!
