I understand inflation and the costs of running a small hospitality business but do you really need to charge $4 for about 50mL of milk?” the mum said in a Facebook group.“I have never known anyone ever to order a babycino only, there’s always coffees (and money) being made already with the order. In our case, $38.“We don’t go out much but is this the norm now?”The mum shared a picture showing three empty cups taped to a wall with prices of the beverages — including $8 for a large iced latte or adult milkshake, $7 for a small iced latte or kids milkshake and $4 for a babycino or piccolo.Many were “gobsmacked” over the “pretty outrageous” price of the babycino.“I have never seen a babycino more than $2,” one said.Another shared: “That’s absolutely ridiculous no way I would pay $4 for a babycino especially because I get a latte and it would just be the bit of foam off the top of the milk they use for it.”However, one suggested: “The people spending money on this are literally part of the problem.”For more engaging lifestyle content, visit 7Life on Facebook.Aussie cafe diner’s fury after being charged $22 for ‘saddest’ dish2 min read‘Ridiculous’ price of ‘breakfast alternative’ at Aussie cafe leaves shoppers gobsmacked 3 min read
