I am looking at buying a cafe in the city and require someone to sit, have a coffee, some food, and count how many customers buy coffee and food in the time period.

The reason for this is because majority of city cafes do not keep proper financial records. This is the only real way of finding the flow of customers and whether they are telling the truth.

I need three days for two hours per day - each a different time period.
ie. Wednesday 7am-9am, Thursday 1pm-3pm, Friday 11am-1pm.

The out of pocket expense will be approx $10/day ($30 total).

Overall you will need to:
- count the proportion of customers who buy coffee, food, or both
- whether cliental is from office workers, tourists, etc
- provide feedback on the coffee & food
- what coffee and food you had
- how long the coffee and food takes
- number of staff working
- overall experience
- analyse passing foot traffic ie slow, heavy
- try and get a few pics while you are there
- anything else you would like to add you think that would be beneficial knowing

You will have to remain as discrete as possible as owners do not like staff knowing they are selling.

Will need to be for this week:
Wednesday 17th 7 am - 9am
Thursday 18th 1pm - 3pm
Friday 19th 11am - 1pm

I will provide the address to the assigned runner.

This will be a great help in the decision making.

Good to see a positive response regarding this task. I wasn't sure what the reaction would be but it is a great help to people like me.

If all goes well I know plenty of people who might be posting similar tasks so keep a look out.

JO - yeh I realised it was school holidays but I wanted to see the trade during this period as well.
Sorry Alexa - I jumped at the chance when I saw this task. Getting paid to bring out the inner Secret Agent in me! It minds me of the some of the Old School Airtasker task like the $500 Burger Run... those were the days!!
Hi Taran, Dam and blast - I missed it! This task would have been been right up my street :) love sitting in Cafes and watching people while sipping yummy coffees. I'm sure you'll be doing more research, so ill keep my eye out. Good luck with the cafe search. Great task :)
Hi Taran,
This is a school holidays week. I would postpone this task for a couple of weeks if i were you. There are substantially less workers in the CBD during school holidays and the outcome of ur research will be negatively skewed, in my opinion!
Good luck with it though.
