My wife was looking online for a good place to get vietnamese coffee in San Jose and came across this:
San Jose police cited three baristas for public nudity during a routine check-up at a racy coffee shop, the San Jose Mercury Times reports. The women, two of whom are 22 and one of whom is 23, were serving coffee at Cafe Quyen, one of 20-odd Vietnamese cafes in San Jose where (mostly male) patrons are served exclusively by attractive, female waitresses wearing little-to-no clothing.
Coffee shops featuring scantily clad waitresses are apparently common in Vietnam, where they are called “Cafe Om.” James Bao of Vietnam Talking Points explains that “they are as close as they come to strip clubs in the conservative Vietnamese culture.”
These Vietnamese coffee shops have cropped up throughout California in recent years, sometimes encountering legal and popular resistance. The most widely-reported battle so far took place in Garden Grove, near Santa Ana in Orange Country. The city council of the 170,000-person, 40% Vietnamese town voted unanimously to ban topless coffee shops in May. But the police didn’t start to crack down on the 37 Garden Grove cafes – many of which have been implicated in illegal gambling and gang-related activities — until early July.
The Vietnamese coffee also gets good reviews.
