That’s right, for one month only, between the hours of 9 a.m. and 11 a.m., customers at French-style Metro St. James Cafe in Sydney have the option of paying their tabs with cash or with a kiss.
Thus far, the promotion is going well. Customers are excited that the pay-with-a-kiss option is “bringing the romance back” to Sydney life. The only catch is that it has to be a “real” kiss.
Word is mostly getting around via the cafe’s social media pages. A post on Metro St James' Facebook page reads “we’re not accepting your money, just your kisses.”
The only drawback is that the promotion is limited to couples; apparently several customers have inquired about arriving solo and smooching with the cafe staff. No dice, they say.
