NORTH SPOKANE-- Bikini Baristas in North Spokane are at the center of a clothing controversy.
Some locals claim the outfits at Big Shots Espresso at Lidgerwood and Francis have crossed the line.
The girls say theyre just trying to have fun at work. In fact, they were comfortable enough to let KREM 2 News videotape them at work.
The owner says the girls make up to $19 an hour.
But not everyone likes it. One woman says she found it shocking to see the ladies out dressed like porn stars and prostitutes trying to sell coffee.
The baristas say theyve heard the complaints before. One woman got so heated last week, the owner had to call police. A barista says the woman pulled over in the parking lot and walked from window to window causing a scene. The baristas ended up locking the windows. The woman was gone by the time police arrived and the girls say she hasn't been back since.
Some of the customers say they back the girls 100%. One woman told KREM 2 News, You can only look like that for so long in your life, ladies get over it. So what if your man looks at them, so what? I think what theyre doing is great.
The owner says when police came out last week, they were told theyre not doing anything wrong. The owner also mentioned if she couldnt run a stand like this, she wouldnt have one at all.
Never been to a bikini barrista.Have to visit one just to say I been to one.
I went to a Hooters once in Iowa, never been back to one,my son took me there when he was in college. He laughed at me all through dinner. The ladies were very friendly.
We had one here in Aurora, CO called Perky Cups, but it closed down because of some dispute between the owner and landlord. I think we had a Perky Cups listed on our credit card sometime earlier this year. It wasn’t me that went.
Perky Cups’ promise to return to Aurora may fall flat

Thank rabscuttle385 for your Hottie fix today.
heck, even the 25 year-olds look like they are 15.
If they dress and make themselves up to be noticed, why should we ignore them?
Wow, I guess she hasn't been to a beach in about 60 years, or even the mall. I am SO glad they didn't print a pic of the person protesting.
HOney, now THATS the BEST coffee I ever tasted!!!!!
Hmm. How many years could I shave off by moving to Japan?
Simple...buy your coffee at McDonalds. If I want to buy my coffee with a view, that's what I'll do.
Don’t do it again! /s
#50 removed, what was it? LOL!
The girls would love you, you’d be “exotic” as a foreigner
Yes yes, but would I be younger????
The goody two shoes brigade needs to find something else to worry about.
Its the milk in the coffee that gets them pished.
