BELLEVUE, Wash. -- The view is what Nick Bean loved the most about his office. It's perched across the street from Crossroads Park here and is less than a mile from his house. That was until a new neighbor moved in.
"This is a family-oriented neighborhood," said Bean, "And this [stand] just doesn't fit."
Bean is talking about the new "Knotty Bodies" espresso stand that opened recently. It sits in between the park, a daycare center, and a residential neighborhood.
"It was nice to see the coffeehouse kind of be renovated," said neighbor Bethann Joyner. "But once I saw the sign go up I could tell what it was all about and it was really disappointing."
Some residents have decided to take their disappointment to the city council's meeting. "I can't imagine what the city of Bellevue was thinking," Crossroads resident Carol Walker said.
Knotty Bodies barista Autumn Novaria says they have the right permits and the right to be there.
"We try to keep it not as risqué here, there are no pasties or anything like that and we didn't put a window there in the back because of the park," she said.
"I just think it's inappropriate," Joyner responds.
