Maine’s topless coffee shop back in business

The Associated Press

VASSALBORO, Maine — A topless coffee shop is now shopless after a fire, but waitresses are serving coffee again.

The Grand View Coffee Shop returned to business this week in a tent, but the waitresses are covering up. On Tuesday, amid gloomy weather, they were sporting sweat shirts instead of the bikini tops they’d been wearing the day before.

Owner Donald Crabtree tells the Morning Sentinel that the waitresses are volunteering their time and working for tips.

Crabtree hopes to reopen soon after sprucing up a couple of rooms that weren’t damaged by fire at the converted motel.
