(NEWS.com.au) — The cost of a coffee has now topped $7, prompting a storm of complaints about pricey Perth.

Cafe Del Pescatore in Manning St, Scarborough is charging $7.25 for a flat white or cappuccino in a mug.

Workers claim it is a fair price for a top-quality, large, double-shot coffee, served in a relaxed setting by friendly staff.

But many diners begged to differ, labelling the hefty price tag “extortion” and a “rip off”.
