Taylor Swift may be notorious for turning heartbreak into hits, but she should be making headlines for another skill she's honed: tipping!

The singer was dining at Ralph's Italian Restaurant in Philadelphia with fellow musicians Ed Sheeran and Austin Mahone when she decided to prove her sweet-as-sugar act isn't confined to the stage.

Taylor, Ed, and Austin all posed for photos with members of the staff and the head chef, who described the encounter to E!

"I called my mom to tell her Swift was there, and she wanted me to take a picture because she is a big fan," he revealed. "My son has autism, and while I'm at work my son loves to listen to her music."

In addition to posing for photos, Taylor handed over two tickets to her concert the following night for the chef and his son.

"It was so kind-hearted of her," he said. "It was my son and I's first concert we've ever been to. It was really special."

While she could have achieved near-sainthood for those actions alone, T-Swift decided to prove beyond any doubt that she's still America's sweetheart by leaving a $500 tip. 

In what is clearly an unrelated coincidence, every waitstaff job in Taylor's adopted hometown of Nashville has just been filled.
