Bauhaus seems to attract young, hip, cool people, many of whom are apparently Seattle Central College students. They have a lot of old books for sale -- an enormous set of shelves that covers the East wall, but these are mostly for show. I used to go there more for their free wireless internet access, because I don't think that their coffee is great. But the space is cool -- at least, the layout. There are tall chairs along a bar next to a wall of windows to the West, tables outside as well. The North wall is also entirely windows. The triangular shaped upstairs space, which overlooks those who sit along both windows, has nice views. In other words, it's a place where young people go to relax and be seen, while pretending to do their school work and have coffee.
