I underst& we use “I’ll (will)” when we decided lớn vày something at the time of speaking in the former case.

I don"t believe sầu this distinction is widely recognized by native speakers.

In any case, the coffee cửa hàng person doesn"t know or care whether you made your decision on the spot or had decided what drink khổng lồ have sầu before you came in.

"I"ll have sầu an orange juice" would be perfectly acceptable in your coffee cửa hàng scenario as whibs.vn as when visiting a friend.

Of course it"s also fine to simply reflect the form of the question:

Waitress: What would you lượt thích to drink?

Me: I"d like an orange juice.

You could say that but in English this probably makes more sense:

"May I have sầu an orange juice?"

"I"m going to lớn have an orange juice" is a little awkward-sounding, although not ungrammatical. Dropping the "an" helps a little, but probably more common would be just "orange juice, please" or "could I have an orange juice?"
