    Looks like San Jose police are finally cracking down on the sexy Vietnamese coffee shops in the area that are offering more than just sugar with their Joe.

    While on patrol Sunday evening, SJPD officers observed several female waitresses showing off a little too much skin, in one of the shops on the 1600 block of Tully Road.

    Three female workers of the Quyen Cafe, ages 22, 22, and 23,  were identified and cited for display of public nudity, a municipal code violation. 

    They were only cited, not arrested, but will still have to appear in court.

    "The police department is aware that some establishments have had employees working as waitresses or bartenders while semi-nude or topless," Officer Jose Garcia told the Merc.

    We brought you the story back in June, about how several Vietnamese coffee shops were getting complaints from spouses of some patrons, for hosting a strip-club-like atmosphere.

    At the time, police said there was little they could do unless the shops were breaking human-trafficking, or underage laws.

    Officials have been mulling over ways to get the coffee shops to cool down the hot coffee, and the Cafe may end up being cited down the line.

    There are about 20 similar shops in the three-square-mile area of San Jose.
