Sydney Woman Calls Out Cafe for Appalling Serve of Vegemite on Toast
This would have to be the most un-Australian image we’ve ever seen. One woman was left scratching her head after receiving her Vegemite toast from a popular Sydney cafe recently. After posting the photo online it led to a debate about how much Vegemite is acceptable on a piece of toast? Whatever the answer is, it’s certainly not this! Do you agree?
The outraged customer shared a photo of the “very disappointing” piece of toast over the weekend showing the measly little scrape of Vegemite she received on her toast. Posting the image to Reddit alongside a sad face emoji she said: “Vegemite on toast from a cafe.” When prompted by other Redditors to reveal the name of the cafe the woman simply said it was from a popular eatery in Newtown.
Comments came in hard and fast accusing the cafe owner of being un-Australian and calling the nearly obsolete spread of Vegemite a disgrace!
“That’s just un-Australian and needs to be called out,” one said.
“It’s barely toasted and the butter doesn’t even make it to the edges. Let alone the issue with the Vegemite,” another added. “That’s bloody outrage that is!”
While some offered advice saying she should’ve taken the toast back. “If I got that after paying money to a cafe I would go back and ask for a refund. Vegemite isn’t that expensive is it?” one said.
“I don’t think that can even be called toast. Warm bread maybe,” another added. “Damn, I didn’t know they made Vegemite in the singular tense, but you found it. A single Vegemite.”
And while the majority of comments were aimed at the ‘barely there’ spread others questioned who would order vegemite on toast at a cafe anyway. “OK, that’s terrible … but who tf is ordering vegemite toast from a cafe?”
That’s the cost of living it seems in Sydney. “Inflation is tough. Restaurants are trying to make their condiments last for the next decade,” one joked.
“I’m not a violent man and I’m slow to anger, but I would go to jail over this,” another teased.
While the comment that wins the internet today has to be this one: “Must have run out of Vegemite so they just wiped their bum with it instead, hoping you wouldn’t notice.”
