Faulted for an extra "F"
Another Italian coffee bar is trying to fight off the language cops.
CJAD told you earlier this week about an Italian cafe in Quebec City that had to replace its menus, signs and wineglasses because its name was spelled in the Italian way: with two Fs.
Like it, the Caffe in Gamba on Park Avenue in Montreal spells its name with two Fs, to reflect its Italian inspiration. The francophone who owns it has been fined nearly two-thousand dollars and ordered to change his signs.
He says he is adding a French language descriptor to one sign but the other is too small for more words.
