ah yes, it does exist ... i have discovered it on my walks through the city
it's really quite the gem! the true love cafe is situated in one of the sketchier areas of town. kitty corner to the true love cafe is a church with a shelter in it and there are often great gaggles of people milling about outside it (the church, not the cafe)
the cafe does its best to class itself up though ... there are hearts spraypainted on the sidewalk bordering the cafe (and not just freehand painting, these puppies are stenciled in pink AND purple)
as further enticement to get you to enter this establishment, they blast great love songs over a rather tinny sounding speaker system ... celine dion seems to be among their favourites ... there's nothing better than walking down the street and hearing "all by my self" blaring from the true love cafe ... i'm unsure if this song choice is supposed to make you feel romantic or if it is meant to make you feel depressed so you'll seek solace in the arms of the true love cafe and perhaps even *gasp* find you r true love!
i have yet to actually enter this magical land d'amour .. but the hand written sign (done most likely with a sharpie) advertising the $1.75 hamburgers is quite tempting ... maybe next week ... or better yet for valentines day (i've gotta find some way to celebrate that day, right?)
