French term or phrase: à (Commander à...)
SPAIN. Sometimes this happens when I'm translating software strings, because the client company has branches in several different countries. Occasionally, a term or expression will appear in French, Italian or Portuguese. I know that 'commander' means to order, but I'm puzzled about 'à'. In Spanish, sometimes the word "a" means 'from', so I'm guessing it could mean "Order from...", but need confirmation.

Context? Here it is:

Explanation:
Usually!

The trouble is with isolated strings like this, you never know quite what follows. I'm guessing it is going to be the palce you order from — but of course it is not inconceivable it could mean 'where you have to go to order' — for example 'commander au comptoir' in a café/bar.
