Sydney barista begs lazy customers to stop spending $10 on Uber Eats to order a SINGLE coffee

Barista begs lazy customers to stop spending $10 to have a SINGLE coffee delivered by Uber Eats – and says the orders are terrible for business

  • The barista of a trendy Sydney cafe launched a tirade against lazy customers
  • He called out people who used a delivery service to order a single coffee
  • He threatened to cancel any coffee delivery orders in a fiery Facebook post

A barista working at a trendy Sydney café has called out lazy customers for spending over $10 on coffee deliveries through UberEats.

In a fiery Facebook post, the worker claimed he was being inundated with ‘ridiculous’ delivery orders.

The man said the purchases were hurting the cafe’s business, and even went as far as to threaten to cancel orders if customers just asked for a coffee.

‘Before I point out that you’re paying $10 for a coffee, I want to break down the cost to us…$4.20 for the coffee, minus 33 per cent for the uber taking, minus 58c for the coffee, minus 38c for the milk, minus $1 for the labour…as you can see there is not much left,’ his post read.

‘Not to mention the increased traffic on the peninsula? The only person winning here is the driver.

‘Please stop this ridiculous waste, whether it be resources, moment or time. If you are a customer be aware that I will be cancelling your orders, if you are a café worker/owner, please stop these people destroying us. Otherwise there is no point living here?’ 

Dine-in restaurants have been losing the battle with customers as delivery services continue to become a familiar sight in every Australian city.

The industry Down Under is booming, fuelled by Australians willing to pay a fee of up to $8 for the convenience of having their meals brought to their doors.  

The city with the most orders is Sydney, where the number of restaurants available for delivery has increased by 50 per cent in the past year alone.

Delivery apps such as UberEats, Deliveroo and Menulog are now so popular that freelance drivers and riders simply wait outside restaurants for an inevitable wave of orders to come through.

Syndey’s inner west has the second most popular suburb in the city for food delivery,  just behind the CBD, according to Menulog.
