Facing west toward downtown

bauhaus books + coffee is a former coffeehouse in Capitol Hill in Seattle that is currently open in the Ballard neighborhood.


Bauhaus was founded on October 5, 1993,[1] and is notable for an unusual coffeehouse space design, which founder Joel Radin later applied to the design of Top Pot Doughnuts when he co-founded that company with others.[2]

While the original location closed on October 5, 2013, a new Capitol Hill location later opened that year, following two new locations in Ballard and Green Lake.[1] All three were closed on December 13, 2015, for unexplained reasons.[3][4]

Joel Radin, the owner filed bankruptcy in February 2017.[1]

On April 15, 2016, the Ballard location re-opened under controversy. The company is opened under the name of Lakshmi Enterprises of Washington Inc. with the name of Bauhaus Strong Coffee Ballard, with Smita Patel listed as the registered agent.[5] [6]


Bauhaus attracts patrons who like to read and study.

The cafe's most notable feature is its high bookshelf with rolling ladder.[7] The old furniture is part of the atmosphere of the place.[8]

Employees have described working at Bauhaus as being an opportunity to "meet amazing people. We are like a big family."[9]
