SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -- A new coffee shop in Scottsdale is hoping to find success with a strategy similar to Hooters, Tilted Kilt, and Twin Peaks.

The Barista Café is a new "bikini" coffee shop and restaurant that opens on Sunday, August 12.

The owner claims this is the only coffee shop and restaurant of its kind in Scottsdale, featuring an all-female staff in a uniform consisting of short shorts and sports-bra type tops.

"Our goal is to differentiate ourselves from other Breastaurant-style restaurants in that the entire dining experience - including travel time - is guaranteed to take 30 minutes or less, " said owner Nicci Graziano. "That way, people who work during the day will be able to enjoy a meal, coffee or snack at Barista Café in the limited time that they have available for lunch," she said.

3TV's Scott Pasmore met the owner and staff of Barista Café during Good Morning Arizona on Friday. He asked some of the staff how they feel about working in that environment.

"I really enjoy it. I enjoy living a healthy lifestyle and this really is a great way to show it off," said Mariah, one of the Barista staff members. "We work really hard to look the way we do and we really like to deliver customer service to people who enjoy it to."
