Bikini Coffee Shop to Open in Arizona
No longer symbolic of the desert, cacti, and sunshine, Arizona is embracing a new image, and we’ll give you a hint — it looks a bit more mountainous. Scottsdale, which recently created buzz with its new "breastaurant" Twin Peaks, has a new addition to the food scene: Barista Café, a bikini coffee shop where you can get your coffee served with a side of cleavage.
The "bra-istas" will don booty shorts and sports bra tops while they serve your coffee with a smile — not that you’ll be looking at their faces. Opening in August, the café will feature healthy breakfast and lunch, so at least you can believe your sculpted server actually eats there, too (unlike Hooters, where just looking at the greasy bar fare is enough to turn your waitress’s six-pack into a beer belly). Don’t expect to sit around ogling all day though; Barista Café emphasizes its quick service with a 30-minute lunch guarantee. You can even pop in for a quick peek with their grab-and-go options.
"Our goal is to differentiate ourselves from other breastaurant-style restaurants in that the entire dining experience — including travel time — is guaranteed to take 30 minutes or less," owner Nicci Graziano told New Times Phoenix. "That way, people who work during the day will be able to enjoy a meal, coffee, or snack at Barista Café in the limited time that they have available for lunch." So if you’re feeling that mid-morning slump, Barista Café is sure to perk you right up.
