Vassalboro, Maine: Grand View Topless Coffee Shop (Gone)

Opened amid controversy in 2009, burned in a mysterious fire later that year, now reopened in an office trailer on the same spot. The employees are topless; the coffee to go comes with a lid.

Grand View Topless Coffee Shop

We visited the trailer annex of this burnt down topless coffee shop. They are rebuilding.

A woman peeked her head out of a window in the door and said there was a $5 cover charge. For a minute, I wondered if that meant she would cover up if we paid her. We paid her, she let us in, and was topless as advertised. We ordered cups of coffee. They came *with* tops in to-go cups. We noticed a few older men hanging around.

We fixed our coffee and left for additional adventures.
