The beloved cafe's problems have gone beyond Capitol Hill.
It looks like it might be the end for all three locations of beloved Seattle cafe Bauhaus.
On Tuesday, Bauhaus Books and Coffee on Capitol Hill shut down suddenly and, per a note on the door and Facebook, permanently.
Bauhaus Green Lake is permanently closed, according to a note on the door there (above) citing “many unforeseen circumstances.” And Twice Sold Tales in Ballard posted on Facebook: “Bauhaus Ballard, which my bookstore subleases from, is closing. I was just told, and told that their last day is Sunday. As yet, I have no idea how long I’ve got to move out or where I’m going to go.”
Bauhaus on Capitol Hill was set to move back into its nearby original space, from which it was displaced by development two years ago. It’s unclear what happened to that plan. The cafe originally opened in the neighborhood in 1993, becoming a fixture.
