California coffee shop opens with beach theme so all the baristas wear bikinis

WATSONVILLE, California (KSBW) — There’s a coffee house in California that’s getting a lot of attention these days.

It’s not the java that’s got attention, but the baristas who serve up the hot drink.

You see, at Bikini Coffee in Watsonville, the baristas wear bikinis instead of the traditional coffee house dress.

Some residents and nearby business owners say the coffee house owner has gone to far, but he says there’s nothing dirty about the dress code since the coffee house is near the beach and is based on a beach theme.

He says his baristas are only allowed to wear beach appropriate attire, in other words nothing to skimpy.

The female employees say they’re comfortable serving up hot drinks in nothing more than a bikini.

They say they are simply wearing the same thing they would wear on a public beach with young kids around.
