Cafe boss marks customer with ‘wet wipe’ amid Tripadvisor row over cup of tea price


A cafe patron has hit back at a customer he called a ‘wet wipe’ who complained on Tripadvisor about the price of a cup of tea.

A customer left a scathing two out of five review of his visit to the Coast Cafe & Gift Shop in Rhos on Sea, Wales, but the owner had none of it.

According to the post, only a fool would pay £3.40 for two cups of tea because the price is a ‘scam’ for just ‘hot water and milk’, North Wales Live reports.

Tripadvisor user ‘lenlenlena’ is no stranger to blasting businesses on the site and titled his latest review: ‘Don’t go, it’s appalling’.
