Café Enjoys Surge After Partners Spot Suspicious Name On Receipts
With the plethora of cafés and eateries on almost every high street, it can be hard for a company to stand out from the crowd.
One business, however, has manged to do just that, with its naughty-sounding name leading to an upsurge in custom.
The boss from the Tea's Me Café in Lockwood, Huddersfield, has revealed that the eatery has witnessed a rise in the number of couples dropping by at weekends.
But it's not for a romantic brunch date - it's all down to the cafe's name showing up on male customers' bank statements, which has led to a few tough questions.
Explaining the bizarre story, a spokesperson for Tea's Me said the level of banter had been at an all-time high.
They said: "Our name comes up as 'Teas Me' on debit cards, so men have had to bring in their partners to prove to them we are a café.
"We came up with the name after sitting down and having a think. We were going to go for 'Baps to the Future'.
"We've had a few people in who said their partner thought they had been on a dodgy website or something.
"The men have been bringing in their partners on a Saturday morning to see it's just a café. We've had a lot of good banter."
The owner, who asked not to be named, recently put the café up for sale for £40,000 ($52,000).
He said: "It got that busy that we were struggling for staff. But I am not in a rush to sell it."
But it's not the only coffee shop that has been causing a bit of a stir of late. A café in Poole, UK, decided it had had enough of the silly names given to hot beverages and came up with its 'no nonsense' drinks menu.
The blackboard shows a list of typical hot drinks options with a cross put through them and a simplified translation written up in its place.
The translations are as follows: Americano = black coffee, Flat white = white coffee, Cappuccino = frothy coffee, Latte = milky coffee, Mocha = choccy coffee, Tea = not coffee, Hot chocolate = also not coffee.
A photo of the blackboard was shared on Reddit where it sparked an all-too-heated debate.
One person said: "Mate I'd be fuming if I asked for a flat white and they gave me a white Americano."
