Eh. Spot-on branding if you ask me since that's the staff's general attitude the few times I've been in. There are other places on/near Bermondsey Street. Hej and the new little one on the end of the street. Vote with your feet, go elsewhere (and drink better coffee!) Win-win.

It's odd because I've seen so many people take photos of the place. I guess that promotes the area. And everyone with their camera is smiling. As for children seeing it, I'm not a parent, so don't wish to get involved in that side of the discussion

It's quirky. Generally doesn't take itself too seriously and as far as service goes, is definitely above average for coffee in the area. I've had shocking service further up the road, and god forbid you go down the street to the Hotel... :)

Some find it funny, others don't. A question of different tastes obviously. They must cater for some demand, so good luck to them.

It's not as simple as a question of humour, is it?

We're all free to make poor jokes, but isn't the question here whether it's appropriate to have a sign over your business that uses language that pretty much everyone would agree is offensive?

...if you press it, they will come.

If I told someone to go forth and multiply on here James would quite rightly edit that and give me a talking to, this sign is in a place where children can see (yep it's an issue)I don't think it makes any difference whether it's meant to be funny or not and the doughnut who sanctioned it wants swearing at.

It's punkoffee and I always found punks tiresome, even as a teen.

It reminds me a bit of when we were kids, and singing the song

"arsole arsole a soldier I will be"

To see how far we could go.

It's punks that, almost 40 years ago made saying rude words in public funny. Sex Pistols Making a variation on that same joke in 2014 is unoriginal and a bit puerile. But it gets them the publicity I guess - I am curious now who their clientele is, I think I'll go and check the, ahem, clever stunt for myself...

Or a Scottish singing duo.

One could go on. One won't.

Unrelated to the original topic, but there's a firm of solicitors in Leeds called 'Godloves'.
