(RNN) – At an Australian bistro, it pays to be a good kisser.

At Metro St. James in Sydney's Hyde Park neighborhood, they welcome customers and their partners who visit their restaurant to be prepared to show a little PDA.

Their month of promotional kissy face is called "Pay with a Kiss": If you order a cup of coffee with your partner, if you share a kiss, it's free.

"Pay with a kiss in June: We're bringing the romance back," Metro St. James said on its website. "Take your partner to the café from 9-11 a.m. throughout the whole of June and surprise them with a kiss when you order your coffee. We're not accepting your money, just your kisses."

No air kisses or cheek kisses allowed - Metro St. James wants lip-to-lip action.

The adorable promotion has received a fair amount of love on the restaurant's Facebook page.

"Is there an age limit with the ‘Pay With A Kiss' promotion thing?" one customer asks on Facebook. Metro St. James responded, "No limit :-)."

If you're not prepared to share a kiss with your loved one, the charge for a fresh brewed cup of coffee is $3.50.

Therefore, if you're in Sydney, Australia in the month of June, take someone you love. The coffee is on the house.

    An up-close image of Cryptosporidium looks like something out of an alien movie, but the parasite could easily be hiding in your neighborhood swimming pool. According to a recent study by the Center for Disease Control, outbreaks of the parasitic infection linked to swimming pools and water playgrounds are increasingly being reported to CDC, with twice as many outbreaks in 2016 as in 2014.
