No need to worry about The Paradise Espresso stand | Letter

I have visited The Paradise Espresso stand a few times, and the baristas there are friendly but not lascivious. To the credit of whoever situated this stand, the serving window is not facing the road, and overall it is quite an innocuous place. I believe espresso stands with girls in 'costume-themed' outfits are not a deterrent to our community as long as they are discreet, and this one certainly seems to be. It is not near a school nor has high foot traffic near.
Very soon, it will be frequented only by those who are looking for an alternative to the ordinary coffee shop.
