The Waitress is a minor character in Paper Mario: The Thousand-Year Door who, true to her title, works as a waitress on the Excess Express. She wears a purple short-sleeved dress with a frilled light purple apron over it, and pink shoes. Her white cap has light purple frills along the base and has a large pink heart in the center while her purple hair is tied into pigtails and sticks out of the cap from its sides.

During the story, she requests for Mario to retrieve her stolen Shell Earrings, which were given to her by her ex-boyfriend (a Squeek that resides in Podley's Place). It is revealed that her earrings are stolen by Doopliss, who attempts to use them to create a Nitro Honey Syrup. If Mario returns the earrings, the waitress will reward him with a Star Piece.
