This Barbie-doll shed of a building is home to Hot Bikini Brew, where owner and head barista, Mandy, can be found most weekdays, serving up espresso drinks in little more than lingerie and a smile. The kiosk is snug, thanks to a whirring space heater, and smells of espresso and Mandy's Love Addict body spray. While Mandy tamps the grounds, a steady stream of dudes casts mostly furtive glances at her flawless, practically bare buttocks.

Outrage over coffee shop which makes baristas wear bikinis and hot pants
A coffee shop has sparked outrage for making its baristas wear bikinis and hot pants to serve customers. The employees at Pink Pantherz drive-by coffee shop in Campbell, California wear bikini tops and short shorts to work every day, with locals branding the dress code sexist and degrading. Sabrina, a barista at Pink Pantherz, said that her outfit should not be a problem because it is hard to see unless you get up close to the shop. This is not the first time Pink Pantherz has gotten local residents upset.
Critics of Pink Pantherz Espresso say the coffee is too hot and steamy to serve, including Campbell resident and mother of two young girls, Cristiae Gibson. On social media, particularly NextDoor. Just disgusting.
