Texas restaurant changes name to Trump Cafe ahead of election

Many restaurants are having fun this election season with Trump and Clinton-themed foods but one Texas eatery is being anything but subtle about its choice for president.

On Thursday, Bellville Café—located in Bellville, Texas about 60 miles from Houston—officially changed its name to Trump Café in honor of the businessman-turned-GOP presidential hopeful.

“He loves America and we hope he will be president,” the café’s co-owner Su Hawa told The Houston Chronicle. “People like the name, they’re supporting him.”
