Deconstructed avocado and toast is, apparently, a thing.

Amused Australian writer Jesse McGuire discovered the dish when she went out to eat breakfast at a café in Melbourne.

McGuire had been meeting a friend in an unfamiliar area of town and when she ordered an avocado-and-toast combo with feta cheese at The Kettle Black Cafe.

The dish, which was on the ‘cheaper end’ of the menu, came up to a total of $18.

That’s £10. For avocado toast.

And if that wasn’t enough to make you splutter into your coffee, when it eventually arrived on her table it came deconstructed.

Yes, McGuire paid £10 to make her own breakkie.

She told ABC Melbourne:

When it arrived on a piece of slate… I wasn’t angry, I just thought it was really funny.

Nothing was put together: The toast was on one section, there was what looked to be 30g of feta in a tiny square on one corner, the kelp salt was put in a line that resembled something from the movie Blow by Johnny Depp.

And the avocado – was half AN avocado – it was still in its skin. And I was like, ‘Am I putting this together?’

Needless to say, people are not impressed by the cafe's dish.

And questioned the logistics of the operation.
