CAPE CORAL, Fla. - A new coffee shop opening in Cape Coral is creating all the buzz around town.
The controversy isn't so much what Baristas Coffee Company will be serving but who will be serving it.
The Seattle based company is known for its scantily clad women working behind the counter and it's drive-through service.
Owners say the coffee shop brews a good cup of joe but the dress code for employees is getting a bold reaction from potential customers.
Hundreds of comments poured on the Fox Four Facebook page, many offended by what's to come to the Cape.
Angela wrote, "As a mother, what kind of public example are we setting for our daughters? It's sad when women are made to think they have to show skin just to get a job!"
Lizeth saying, "There's a place for everything and scantily clad women do not belong at a coffee shop..."
But Marienne is looking forward to the business breathing new life into Cape Coral and posted, "If it's an easy business that goes well, then who cares?"
Tina added, "Who cares what they are wearing. It all depends on how good the coffee is."
Dave posted, "If you're offended, don't go in...no one is forcing you."
Joanne thought, "Don't get it, but if this is what the public wants I guess its ok."
The shop is expected to open in August on Cape Coral Pkwy. and Palm Tree Blvd.
