Wrong typeface for copy?
Hello you folks
I am looking at a website for a local cafe, and something doesn't sit right about their choice of typeface for block copy; it seems to hurt my eyes when reading paragraphs. Am I the right in thinking that they've over-used the typeface "king Kool KC"?
Thank you - I am a typographic newcomer - this is an education for me, albeit a VERY enjoyable one

You're right. What they're using for body copy is definitely a display typeface, something designed for headlines and very short blocks of text. It's not at all comfortable for reading anything over a line or so.
Like all rules, there's always exceptions, but in this case they're definitely breaking the "don't use display type for body copy" rule in a very bad way. A simple sans would've been a much better choice.
I don't personally love that typeface used as a headline either, it's a bit overly casual for them IMO.
