Coffee Shop

“What's special about this place is that there is a mural on the side of the coffee house. This mural is my favorite in all the world. This coffee house was opened by a lesbian couple in 1999. One night the couple got into a big fight. One girl wrote a message with paint on the side of the coffeehouse wall. She was hoping her girlfriend would see it the next morning whenever she came to open shop. What did that message say? It was simple "I love you so much." Now the couple is married and still running that coffee stand. I suggest stopping by for a delicious cup of Jo and a picture with your loved ones for all the world to know who you love so much!”
