Jim, who has just over 400 followers, seemed in good spirits despite not receiving the answer he expected.
Thanking the café for their help, he shared a screengrab of the note he originally wrote to accompany his order.
‘Contact-free delivery. Can I get red onions on the toastie with onions please. Can you write “Will you marry me?” on the box with the onion toastie. She will be ecstatic. Thanks,’ Jim said.
Photos show that Kilbowie Cafe gladly obliged his request neatly writing ‘will you marry me?’ in red pen.
The staff decorated the box with colourful hearts.
