The Cafe Debate, Part 1

The Cafe Debate, Part 1

Dear Noble Editor of Salient!

Once again we have returned to Victoria to study under perils of interm assesment and exams. After one morning of boring lectures, wind blown dust and dirt, we fought our way to that residence of 'Cuisine Excellence' - the cafe! and what a shock! Crud second only to Parliament!

Just what do the cafeteria controllers think students are? The prices are higher than last year and the food one receives is so meagre as to cause one to wonder how much you've been ripped off.

Nearly every cafe in Wellington has prices on rolls and sandwiches etc. which are less than what we pay for in the cafe.

How about some value for money. I challenge those in control of the cafe to justify, thru your news paper, the prices charged. Until then I'll make my own lunch at only 10% of what it costs to buy it at the cafe.

New students beware the cafe is —

'La Trapaza de Touristas'

Yours affectionately,

Better Fed Elsewhere.
