A disabled man claims a cafe refused him service because customers complained it was 'unsightly' seeing him being fed through a tube.

Perth resident Matthew Cook says employees at a Gloria Jean's Coffees store in Western Australia denied him a drink out of respect to other customers.

Mr Cook, 35, told Seven the incident occurred 'because of a few other customers complaining that it was unsightly, and even to give me a coffee in the parents change room.'
