A sunny street café in Melbourne’s west has had to raise prices to keep customers coming in this Christmas season.
Staff at the Sunshine Cafe in The Rocks have had to increase the price of their drinks by 5.8 per cent to help cover the increased costs of Christmas lights.
“We are very sad, we’ve been doing this for over 25 years and we just can’t keep up with it,” said manager Michael McKeever.
“The customers are leaving.
A sign on the window of the Sunshine Café says Christmas lights are out for the season, but customers are staying to take advantage of their free light. “
People have just left because the lights are just not working.”

The Sunshine Cafe owner Michael McLeod says Christmas has been ‘very difficult’ for staff.

“I guess the best way of putting it is I think people are going to go elsewhere,” he said.
“So we have to get some other lights.”

The owner said the business was already struggling financially.
“It’s not the easiest thing to do,” he told the ABC.
I can’t blame the customers. “
That’s the reality, that’s the way it is.
People pay money. “
It’s a business.
People pay money.
But at the end of the day it’s a very difficult time for us.”
Mr McLeod said it was not easy for staff to adapt to the increase in customer numbers, and that there was a “big gap” between the costs of lighting and the profits that come from selling food and drinks.
