SPOKANE VALLEY, Wash. -- Protests around nearly nude coffee stands continued Thursday.

Men, women, and children picketed outside the XXX Espresso stand near Sprague and Pines.  They argued kids can see into the stand while driving by and want Spokane Valley leaders to force the bikini baristas to cover up.

"This is adult entertainment,” said protestor Shelly Clark.  “There is a place, a venue; we have laws [and] codes.  I just want them to stick with what this is, which is adult entertainment."

The owner of the coffee stand said, however, she is not breaking any laws.  She said the bikini stand is a way for her business to stand out in a competitive market.
