Smaller portions cut waist

Smaller food portions equal a slimmer population and a larger wallet, according to reader Brendan Lynch, who has been on the case of getting cafes to sell smaller portions (with cheaper prices). He contacted Smart Consumer to say that he has seen some improvements.
On a recent trip to Lisbon he got an espresso and a (small) croissant for just €1.10, and while you're not likely to find prices like that here, he wants to let readers know about establishments that he feels are recognising "that 'Irish' portions are too big and expensive":
- McDonald's bacon and cheese toastie, €1.40 and espresso €1.50 = €2.90 .
"Not great but getting there!"
- Abrakebabra 'Mini' Kebab €3.
"Even the 'mini' filled me to capacity"
- Centra's 'mini' size brownie (€1.15), donut (€1.15) and loaf (€1.30).
