Now who says romance is dead?

One Australian cafe is rekindling the idea of public displays of affection by giving couples free coffee during the month of June with just one simple catch -- couples have to kiss in front of the barista between the hours of 9 to 11 a.m., according to Trend Hunter.

In a YouTube video posted by Metro St James cafe in Sydney, a barista tables a bill before informing couples that instead of paying the standard $3.50 for a coffee, they can compensate with a smooch.

And no, not all kisses are well, kisses. They have to be real kisses, adds the video and air kissing doesn't count.

“I can see if it is a fake kiss,” the barista says. “I am kind of a specialist.”

The video, now with more than 200,000 views, asks another couple to “show how it is done,” to which the barista adds his own cheesy narration.

The cafe has been generating positive comments from places as far as Serbia to India on its Facebook page.

One cheeky reader asks if there is an age limit to the Pay With A Kiss promotion to which the cafe replied “No limit :)”
