Sydney cafe receives much criticism for AU$10.90 side dish of avocado

Little Jack Horner, a café in the Sydney beachside suburb of Coogee, is now the focus of a backlash among locals after it raised the price of its side dish of avocado to A$10.90. according to owner B.J. McHatton, the increased prices, which came into effect over Christmas, matched what was happening in the rest of the country.

But Australian consumers have had a mixed response to the price increase, especially for the avocado, which can be bought for A$1.50 apiece at local supermarkets.

“$11 for a SIDE ORDER of avocado,” one person complained in a Google review. “Insane absolute thievery.”
