Little is known about the Front Page Café Owner except for the few following facts: the Front Page Café owner is a businessman who owns and runs the Front Page Café and pays protection money to DBP Security and the Patrol Invest Group. He also looks like a member of the GIGN and DGSE. The Front Page Café owner does not care who he pays protection money to, as long as he is protected.
Role in Missions
The Front Page Café owner plays a minor role in the mission Bar Brawl. In the mission, Tommy Vercetti gets informed by Lance Vance, who is drinking in the Vercetti Estate's Lounge at the mini-bar, that the Front Page Café is refusing to pay protection money to the Vercetti Gang, as they are already paying protection money to DBP Security and the Patrol Invest Group. Tommy then gets angry at Lance for not taking care of the issue later and drives off to the Front Page Café in his Sentinel along with two members of the Vercetti Gang. He takes out the two Patrol Invest Group security guards that are protecting the Café and then tries to convince the Front Page Café owner to pay protection money to the Vercetti Gang. The Front Page Café, however, states he doesn't care who he pays protection to as long as he pays protection. Tommy then goes to DBP Security Headquarters and kills every singly member of DBP Security he sees there. Two DBP Security Members attempt to flee on PCJ-600s but they end up getting chased down and killed. After Bar Brawl, It is presumed that the Front Page Cafe pays protection money to the Vercetti Gang.
- The Front Page Café Owner can (but does not have to be) killed by the player. This has no affect on the storyline.
