(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.
