"Naturally, this is not something we are happy about but this is the minimum that we can do."
Dublin café Grounded have regrettably had to implement price increases recently. They explained the reasoning behind these price increases in a candid Instagram caption, saying:
"PSA - unfortunately due to the ongoing rising costs of all of our supplies & materials we have no choice to but make a minor price increase to our offerings. Naturally, this is not something we are happy about but this is the minimum that we can do. As always, we appreciate the kindness and support we receive everyday!"
Given the cost-of-living crisis, we unfortunately suspect there will be more cafés posting similar announcements soon.
Across the country, cafés have been discussing their crazy electricity bills, which will ultimately have to result in them raising their prices to stay afloat.
