Would you want this coffee shop in your neighborhood?
Do you think the idea will take off?
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.

This seems to be a trend in Maine, as "Mark's Topless Doughnut Shop" has been a ficture in Portland for quite a few years now. It's funny, though, as Vasselboro is far from being as big of a town as Portland, so curious as to how long this would actually make out as a business. At this point, Maine is a hard place to start ANY business...not even talking about the financial climate, just their tax structure is so small business un-friendly, so if they can make it....hooray for them...shirt or not shirt.

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!!

It's for the 18 and over crowd, so odds are, young children won't be frequenting this establishment. I don't see how it's 'bad'. Hell, there are tittie bars all over the place, and many of them serve alcohol. At least when folks leave this place, they'll be sober.
I for one, wouldn't care. Boobs are boobs...if you've seen one pair, you've seen them all. LOL
