Caffe has OQLF seeing red
An upscale Italian restaurant in Quebec City is selling its supply of wine glasses because they violate the language law.
The owners of the Conti Caffe says they have already spent $20,000 to replace menus and outdoor signs and are now being forced to get rid of their entire wine glass supply because the word caffe has two F's.
It is the Italian spelling for cafe, which has one F in French.
And that is one F too many for the language police.
The owner of the restaurant says he will take the proceeds from the sale of wine glasses and donate them to a local charity.
