Torrance gets rid of the bikini coffee shop and keeps the shady massage parlors ? Does that make sense to you?

torrance IS crap, whoever said you don't need a downtown area has never been to a real city with a real vibrant culture. If you like having to drive everywhere, taking 20 minutes to drive 2 miles, and the negatives of a small town (boredom) AND a large city (crime, traffic, lack of natural areas and open space), enjoy torrance. I had the misfortune of growing up in Torrance and left as soon as I could. It's too bad people I love still live there or I'd never set foot in it again as long as I live.

A friend and I went to Bikini Espresso because we were both excited about a new coffee house in town. Because I am self employed, I go out of my way to support other small businesses.
We were greeted at the drive up window by 3 lovely girls in bikini's. They seemed very happy to be there. We gave them our order then we waited. We waited for a LONG TIME. All of which the girl at the window chatted with us and share with us that she is going to college and really greatly appreciated the work, etc.
Finally our coffee order is done and it was completely wrong. The cups were also luke warm. Harry drove away and I took a sip. It was horrible! It did not taste like coffee but luke warm water with stuff in it.
Since Harry treated those two horrific cups of coffee, I insisted that we drive to starbucks also in Torrance and just down the street on 190th. We threw away the two cups of "coffee" we had just purchased spending over $8.00 and purchased 2 new cups from Starbucks which made a perfect cup of coffee.
You sound like a BITTER and over weight woman, who got jealous of the girls in the bikinis! Hey lady, don't take your guy to a bikini coffee bar, if you can NOT compete! If you didn't like the place just leave, chances are after this type of comments they would have kicked you out any ways! are you sure you needed coffee not jenny craigs LOL!
I was very disappointed. The concept is wonderful but the product was horrific. Before he goes back into business, Gillett really needs to hire someone who knows how to make coffee. He can have the bikini clad girls up front but in the back have employees that know how to handle an order and to make a good cup of coffee!

For a 300 pound mentally ill stalker ( My opinion) girl Miss Rebecca Vasconcellos is trying to defame & slander this coffee shop! I think its all about jealousy. When your obese and weigh in about 200-300 pounds the last thing you want to see are hot girls in a bikini.........I suggest you Miss Piggy Vasconcellos stop hanging out at the coffee shops and instead go to the gym so that you won't be jealous of all the hot LA women you stalk and write nasty stuff about!
Further NO your not the owner of Rebecca's kitchen as I spoke with the true owner and she has NEVER heard of you and your used/old/second hand books that you sell for one or two dollars are now being replaced by your nicotine product sales without a license right?
kind of like the fake college degree that you don't have!
jesus can some one stop all these crazy people on the internet!
Get a life Vasconcellos and get off the internet LOSER!
(ALL my thoughts and feelings and opinions here)!
