As Marsha said, this sentence is translated in English in a different way to Spanish, so we say in Spanish: ¿Me pone un café, por favor? meaning literally "Do you put me a coffee, please?", but obviously this is not said this way in English; what you'd say here is "Can I have a coffee please? This is why the verb is conjugated in the 3rd person singular, because it agrees with "usted", which is the subject.
I hope this clarified it.
Yep. Because you are asking the waiter to give you a coffee using polite usted pone.
