Help me brainstorm a way to ask out a girl. But wait! There are complications.

Anonymous because people I know, know I'm on here.
Most days for lunch I pop down to the local bakery (a 15 minute car journey), and in the last couple of weeks a new girl started working there. She is absolutely beautiful, and I of course have developed a crush on her. This is pretty unusual as I don't meet too many women, and the last crush I had was probably about 2 years ago. But she had just gotten married, and was therefore off-limits.
Anyway, now for the interesting bit. This girl doesn't work on the counter, she works in the kitchen, and I only really see her briefly when she comes out with customer's sandwiches. So i've never really spoken to her but to say thanks as she's handed over my own sandwiches a couple of times (this sounds so lame).
The women (all middle aged) who do work on the counter are all very nice, although I think a bit intimidated by me as I'm 6'5" and look a bit unusual.
So, the questions are:
1. Can you think of a way to ask this girl out that wouldn't involve me asking someone on the counter first, or performing a 'stake out'.
2. If the best course of action is asking someone at the counter about her, how can I broach the subject? Remember, I see these people most days, and they are involved in my lunch.
3. How would you feel if someone did this to you? Would you see it as charming, or a bit weird, or something else? Taking into account that I'm not exactly a looker.
Thanks in advance for your answers.
