Watch out Starbucks: A New Trend in Coffee?

Would you want this coffee shop in your neighborhood? 

Do you think the idea will take off?


Topless 'Over-18' Cafe in Maine Alarms Neighbors

VASSALBORO, Maine  —  Cup size has more than one meaning at a new central Maine coffeehouse.

Servers are topless at the Grand View Topless Coffee Shop, which opened its doors Monday on a busy road in Vassalboro. A sign outside says, "Over 18 only." Another says, "No cameras, no touching, cash only."

On Tuesday, two men sipped coffee at a booth while three topless waitresses and a bare-chested waiter stood nearby. Topless waitress Susie Wiley said men, women and couples have stopped by.

The coffee shop raised the ire of dozens of residents when it went before the town planning board last month. Town officials said the coffee shop met the letter of the law.

WOMEN ARE TO SMART TO PAY FOR THAT, THOUGH.

Quoting geminitwiins:

Personally I would not go, I have my own set to look at thank you....But I really want to know is where are the attractions for the women? I mean you hear about topless news, topless, doughnuts, topless coffee, topless everything....I like men and I don't think I would mind staring at a six pack first thing in the morning.....LOL

I wouldn't want it in my area but I also don't want strip clubs or "gentlemen's clubs (cough, cough)" in my area either.

Um the question is IF WE WOULD GO. . .so what if we say no we shouldn't answer.

Quoting forsythia_18:

LOL. That's hilarious!  I know the human body is such a shocking thing for most people.  (rolls eyes)

Well, if you think it's gross--don't go!!

If you don't want your children to see--don't take them!!

the end.

The question is, "would you want this coffee shop in your neighborhood".  Not "would you go?" You can be ok with it being in the neighborhood and not want to go.  That was the point I was trying to make in my post.

They have bikini/lingerie baristas in our town.  I thought this was a trend elsewhere.  Lol.

I wouldn't go, but I see no reason to get upset that the place exists.

It's amazing how people don't hold themselves to the standards they set for others.

LOL I love the idea.

Look I am not a fan of the idea that over exposure desensitizes people but since so many support that then this should stop the objections to breastfeeding in public since they will be used to seeing boobs.
