I was quite suprised that the owner would take this path and occupy the old mocha tree with this kind of attention. What kind of message does it send to our children? Sex or scant cladded women selling coffee to make a profit. It saddens me to know that this is what some people think it takes to turn a profit, I mean, sure, it's just business, but it's not like the other espresso bars she owns are in need of this kind of business to keep her affloat. I really like the Mocha Tree and yet, I get a bad taste in my mouth when I think of the road she has chosen. It's really too bad, because I think she is making a poor choice and losing a solid customer base from her other location. I also KNOW that some of her hard working barista's are unhappy, finding Playmates distasteful.

I have questions regarding the age of the baristas. Is there a minimum? I don't feel it appropriate to have a minor serving the public in such dress.
I can deal with the novelty of the idea & the fact that it is obviously making $$$, but to think that there may be 16 year olds in there really bothers me!
