Topless coffee shop a hit in small Maine town. (Photo)

(CNN) -- It's a tough time for businesses, but one entrepreneur may have found the recipe for success.

Male and female servers go topless at Grand View Topless Coffee Shop.
1 of 2

On Monday, Donald Crabtree opened Grand View Topless Coffee Shop in Vassalboro, Maine, where the waiters and waitresses serve their customers topless.

In a town with fewer than 4,500 residents, the topless coffee shop is booming with business. Paul Crabtree, the owner's brother, describes business so far as "fantastic."

"It's just been crowds mobbing in," he said.

1. No.
I think it's a ridiculous concept. Why would I want to be served by a topless woman? Or even a topless man for that matter. Mixing coffee with sexual innuendo... ah, is so American, heh. I'm not surprised the place is crammed but it doesn't appeal to me at all.
