"For that money I did not think to assemble the dish alone," said the customer indignantly.
Well, this menu item simply brought the pants to a higher level.
A woman posted a photo of her very minimal breakfast order on Instagram, venting her frustration on the price and the DIY element of her plate.
Jess McGuire, who works as a freelance journalist and radio presenter in Melbourne, said she was rather annoyed by what landed on her table after delivering $ 18 to avoid feta on toast.
"For that money I did not think to assemble the pot alone," he said news.com.au.
"It was fun, but a ridiculous dish to serve in. I prefer my food built and I made the assumption that it would be as it would have served."
Mrs McGuire's dish from Melbourne's Kettle Black coffee included two slices of toasted bread, half an avocado, a plate of feta cheese, a slice of lime, and a sprinkling of seaweed salt.

"Pretty deconstructed, is not it?"
His post on Instagram, which received hundreds of comments and I like it, showed how the order was plated.
"I'm not sure that you guys will ever fully understand the level of annoyance I felt I was going to this supposed" toast breakfast with avocado with feta "that today costs $ 18." Pretty deconstructed, it's not is not it? "I said dryly to the waitress, to whom she smiled enthusiastically and nodded.
"What the hell of a king? To be given an avocado seed and told to cultivate the land and cultivate my crop for several years before going back to the bar to finally enjoy my breakfast?
"Eighteen dollars, what a privilege there is the dream of a mortgage that the boomers were right."
"What a load of saws," he commented.
"Great profit margin on that plate!", Added another. "You must be a kind of sick social experiment … I will be angry too."
"You can not please everyone," says the manager
Talking about news.com.auCoffee manager Tim James said the avocado on toast was one of the most popular menu items.
"This is how we served it from the point of the day, which is four years ago," he said. "It is a means to avoid in the skin, which pays tribute to the avocado and to the farms.
"Then you do it yourself and plan your breakfast your way, we have some citrus on the site and you can add whatever you want."
Speaking of Ms McGuire's reaction to the dish, James said that every customer has "different expectations".
"You can not please everyone," he said. "We can add things if they are not happy, but we have served it this way for four years and it is one of the most ordered dishes on our menu."
Mrs. McGuire said she does not complain to the coffee owner and "write it as an experience".

The vegemite toast for $ 7 got a reaction at the start of this year to be the hipster peak. Source: Instagram
How can we forget Vegemite in toast saga?!?
At the start of this year, a cafe in Newcastle, on the northwest coast of New South Wales, was beaten for serving a $ 7 vegan toast.
Instead of serving the toast with the dressing on the side, the $ 7 dish was served on a wooden table. The chefs cook the butter and pop it next to the toast, with a delicate microherb leaf resting on it.
In the end they get a big blob of Vegemite and spread it on the blackboard.
The Newcastle club, Huon Oliver, posted a photo of the dish on Instagram.
"Vegemite gourmet on toast, this is simply ridiculous!" He captured the picture. "Tasty but ridiculous."
"This is not lit. This upsets me," one person commented. "Seriously ??? Ahahaha, when it comes to your table, the toast will be cold … dry toast," wrote another.
"The toast would have been very cold by then, the butter would not have melted, what it is," said another person.
But never fear why: "We do not press on Vegemite"
Core Espresso's manager, Emma Reid, said that there's a reason they served toast this way.
"If someone orders toast and want Vegemite, we want to make sure that it is presentable and that there is enough Vegemite there, we do not press on Vegemite," he said news.com.au.
"Even if they're just ordering Vegemite to toast, we want our customers to know that a little attention is put on the plate, it's nice to put a nice quenelle in the pot," he said.
