Update: Bikini Barista Coming to Woodinville?

Morning Star school administrators sent out a note to parents Wednesday about a nearby espresso stand becoming a "bikini barista."

Update 11:42 a.m. A note from Morning Star school now says the stand will NOT be a bikini barista coffee stand:

Dear Parents,

I have talked to the espresso stand owner and he has confirmed that he is NOT planning to turn the espresso stand under the White Stallion into a Bikini Barista. I would like to encourage you and others in the area to patronize his stand so that he can continue to be successful as a family friendly business. I would also like to thank everyone for their support of our school. 

Original story -

A "bikini barista" is coming to Woodinville, according to a letter sent to parents from Morning Star preschool Wednesday morning. 

The note follows:

Dear Parents,

The espresso stand located in our complex has changed ownership is planning on becoming a "bikini barista." The landlord can't exclude this, but is as highly against it as we are. I will be letting the espresso owners know that this is unacceptable to us and am letting you know in the hopes that if enough people express their desire for them to remain family friendly, that the new owner will abstain from changing into this kind of business.

Thanks for your support

The school is located at 15620 NE Woodinville Duvall Place in Woodinville and the closest espresso stand seems to be From the Grounds Up. Patch will update this story as more information becomes available.

In January, a local coffee stand owner had their female employees wear "costumes" as an experiment, but it was a short-lived one and they stopped after only a short time. At that time the city of Woodinville did not have any ordinances against regarding scantily-clad baristas.

AJ....you deserve an apology from the owner of the Morning Star Preschool and she should post the apology at her school....but look at all the free publicity you got!

Well, I WAS there the day your employee was dressed in a costume. You can't go attacking people's opinions because you got your rear handed to you for opening up a costume stand in our neighborhood. Back-pedal all you want - I just wish I had a picture to back up what I personally saw.

Ann if you have a problem witm my stand STAY AWAY all your doing on here is creating more drama. You have something to say come say it to me! Between you and karen slandering my business and you keeping it going is ridiculous. Dont fret about my response on here and especially if it wasnt meant for you. No one rear handed nothing to me so lets get that straight.

Ann, please tell us EXACTLY what you saw. Was it a bikini? Did you see anything beyond what you would see at the beach? Would you describe what you saw as pornography?

Andre Johnson, You still owe your past employee's money for hours worked at that stand. I would be more concerned about paying what you owe than what you wear.
