The price of a coffee and a scone

Sir, – On two occasions last week I was charged over €7 for coffee and a scone/croissant. I seem to recall such a choice costing just over €5 last time I indulged.

What has happened behind the scenes to cause such a large jump in price?

If it happened to a pint, there would be protests! – Yours, etc,
