I felt like there was no point to any of those scenes really.
If anything, the only part that I liked about the waitress's deleted scene was that there were a few more shots of the film showing some more direct casualties taking place during the attack.
I think those made sense when they had the original opening scene for Cap still in. What is jarring is the shots of the waitress in the final film without those other scenes. I think they would have worked, as none of the other characters seem to be in a warzone. She could have conveyed that, including the shots of others being hurt and killed.
The broken pair of glasses, I thought that was simply a shot to show what was planned for the victims. Does it mean something else?
