Betty Lomas, 75, said: "It looks a lot like a swear-word to me and I wouldn't be surprised if they'd planned it on purpose to attract some attention.

"It's highly inappropriate, especially as there's children about."

But Darren Bent, 23, of Thorne, near Doncaster, saw the funny side, saying: “I had to double-take when I saw it because it does look like the Fuck-Inn Coffee Shop.

“I think it’s hilarious, though. It brightened up my day when I saw it.”

Louise Cooper, 38, of Doncaster, said: “You’ve got to see the funny side of things like that.

“I’m sure it was an honest mistake, but it definitely looks naughty and I was very shocked until I re-read it and worked it out.

“It’s very amusing.”

The owner of the cafe did not find it funny however, and has refused to comment on the matter.
