HST on a $4 coffee?

My local coffee shop charges 13 percent HST on a $4 coffee. I called Revenue Canada and the advised me that on a food or beverage purchase $4 or less, the PST portion of the tax should be rebated at the cash, making the effective tax rate 5 percent, which is the federal GST portion. What is your experience?
