According to Eater, a man from Northern Ireland tweeted a photo of a sign in the cafe’s window that read “No Bus/Coach, or Loud American’s [sic]. Thank you.” The tweet was sent more than six weeks ago, but didn’t go viral until this week.

CNBC reports that calls and an email seeking comment from the cafe were not returned.
