With menu options such as “Panty Dropper,” “Booty Call” and “Hard On,” an apparent new business in Redwood City is definitely getting a rise out of some residents.
It appears Pink Pantherz Espresso is moving into the space formerly occupied by the old Caffino at 2797 El Camino Real.
We reached out to the company today for comment. When it comes to details, the owners were not prepared to bare it all. We received this stripped-down statement:
“Thank you for the interest in our company, we are currently finalizing everything and as soon as we are done will contact you with all the details.”
We first learned about the business from the Facebook forum, “Redwood City Residents Say: What?” where locals on Tuesday posted photos from outside the old Caffino where a Pink Pantherz Espresso sign has been erected on the storefront.
Established in 2014, Pink Pantherz Espresso has three locations — in Fremont, Modesto, and Fresno — and bills itself as “The Best Bikini Coffee Shop,” according to its website.
“We offer up the very best in Espresso beverages, including lattes, mochas, and our famous pink panthers pleasures beverages,” the company said. “We also serve pastries and treats, made fresh for us each day by our local bakery, and invite you to come by and try our new iced Italian Sodas, a favorite out in these parts during those hot summer months or a hot cup of coffee served by an even hotter barista!”
While the business has received decent Yelp reviews, the possibility it will open in Redwood City received mixed reactions in the Facebook forum, with one commenter noting “there’s no way in hell I’d be ordering an ‘Irish Babe.'” A mom said she will “never be able to go through that drive thru with her kids,” but not everyone was critical.
“I guess I know where I’m getting my coffee now,” said one man, while a woman called out others for being prude.
“Ya’ll ever take them to a pool where women are in bathing suits?” she wrote. “I mean basically in underwear.”
