I see a line of waiting customers halfway down the block… just not at this place.

Espresso with a danish. Would you like an extended diatribe on the evils of the patriarchy with that?

Alex O’Brien, owner of Melbourne-based vegan cafe Handsome Her, charges male patrons an 18 percent mark up – for one week every month – while the women continue to pay the regular amount… The 18 percent markup reflects the gender pay gap reported by the Australian Bureau of Statistic in 2016. 


If men don’t want to pay it, we’re not going to kick them out the door. It’s just an opportunity to do some good.

What sort of a man would spurn the chance to show solidarity with the sisterhood? That said, it is conceivable that some bogan tradie from the outer suburbs might lose his way and find himself on Alex’s threshold. Brunswick, aka Hipsteropolis, is buried deep among the inner suburbs of Mogadishu-By-The-Yarra. But that isolation might not suffice to such a clash of civilisations.

One customer told Seven News in Melbourne: “I think it’s fair if you think about the world and the gender inequality that we have.”

Changing the world one overpriced vegan treat at a time!
