Yes, it's not impossible. You have to have been there 2 or 3 times so that she recognizes you and remembers any small talk you had in the past. They will remember you well if you made them smile at least. At that point it's simply a matter of asking. Preferably when it's not super busy that way there's no line to hold up you can chat for an extra 30s or so. The times I've done it I always got a #. Surprisingly ime ones that have BFs still give a # out and will at least chat some with texts.

Only if you're an awkward person. Show that it didn't really bug you (why would it anyways if you barely knew them) and they'll not be bothered either.
