What happens when you take a beloved Capitol Hill institution and pop it over to Ballard? Does it get ruined by the fish smell? Does it become over-concepted or Scandahoovian? Nope! Turns out it just makes for a nice place to sit your ass down, have a coffee, and read a book. The new Bauhaus is shiny and well-windowed, and its baristas are friendly—don’t let that scare you! It feels just right. It’s both cozy and modern, it’s connected to next-door used bookstore Twice Sold Tales, and it’s a welcome fresh face in a neighborhood whose additions are rarely this classy and beloved. (Bauhaus, 2001 NW Market St, 706-2900, 8 am–1 am)
