Morrisons shoppers have asked the supermarket giant again after changes to its cafe menus resulted in a storm of disapproval.
The company recently reopened cafes in its stores across the UK, including those in Coalville, Wigston, Melton, Hinckley and Leicester.
You’d think the news would be welcome, weeks after people were allowed to enjoy a sit-down meal again in ordinary cafes, pubs and restaurants.
But it looks like the move hasn’t gone well.
Morrisons has also introduced other changes to ensure social distancing is respected now that restrictions on coronaviruses are relaxed, BirminghamLive writes.
The company said, “Welcome! Our cafe doors are open again and we can’t wait for you to try our brand NEW menu! With security screens and social distancing in place, order on your cell phone from the comfort of your seat. “
But news of its cafes reopening has left some Morrisons buyers unhappy.
One of them fumed: “Anyone who has ever designed the menu has no idea what customers want. We have stopped visiting like toast at outrageous Â£ 1.75 even though it is more flowery and that jam comes with. Lots of seniors I know liked the mini meals and sandwiches in normal bread and said they wouldn’t visit. Please rethink. “
A second fumed: “The grilled sandwiches bought with bechamine sauce are horrible, because I can’t eat them, it makes me very sick, please start making the toast yourself again.
“With this menu, you are going to lose a lot of repeat customers.”
And another posted: “We’re one of the older couples looking forward to a meal or a snack there. Not anymore.”
And another commented: “I visited the new cafe for our tea today. Before the lockdown we visited the cafe a few times as my favorite was the delicious lasagna. This was taken off the menu to tell you that you are now making a healthier menu.
âShouldn’t it be our choice of what we eat? The portions would be okay for kids, but not for adults going out for a main meal.
“The prices are outrageous. Please bring back the usual menu to retain your customers.”

âI have been going to your cafe since it opened but I will find such shame elsewhere,â commented another.
Another said: “I thought they were laughing when our meal (starter) lol was bought. I had to make my husband another tea and that was the point of going, it was not to cook. “
