This Aussie cafe will give free meals to anyone wearing pineapple clothes

Dust off your favourite pineapple print button-up because café chain Jamaica Blue are slanging free drinks and meals to anyone who rocks up wearing their best pineapple patterned clothing or fashion accessory (pineapple tattoos count). It’s to celebrate their new “pineapple themed menu”, of course, with the freebie deal including jerk chicken tacos, breakfast bowls, cheesecakes, iced tea and kombucha. Weird, but free.

Anyone who shows up and flashes a staff member their very, very good fashion sense will score themselves a free meal or drink from the new menu, though only a handful of stores are offering it up, and only on certain days. This includes Jamaica Blue Joondaloop, (WA) on 23 February, Myer Centre (SA) on 2 March, Doncaster (VIC) on 9 March, Bondi (NSW) on 16 March and Indooroopilly (QLD) on 23 March. Each pineapple fan is entitled to one item from the menu, on the specific day in each state.

So what’s on the new menu? Think trendy tropical flavours like a “Soul Bowl” with pineapple and honey flavoured yoghurt mixed with Brookfarm macadamia muesli, dried fruits, coconut flakes and blueberries; the “Ya Man! Taco” which is jerk BBQ grilled chicken on grilled roti with aioli, pineapple, coriander and crispy cabbage slaw; and drinks like hand-crafted pineapple flavoured kombucha, and homemade iced-tea with pina-colada syrup, pineapple juice, lemongrass and ginger tea.
