Dubsea is a calm lagoon in a sea of uncertainty. White Center has long been considered a shady and dangerous part of Seattle, and lacked a lot of the social outlets that other parts of Seattle offer. Slowly people are getting hip that all the gentrified neighborhoods are lame and the rugged areas are the spots that actually have a little personality. Dubsea is a coffee shop that embodies not only the grit of White Center, but the coffee quality that Seattle has come to expect. With a pristine Synesso and a Stumptown bean, Dubsea brings it. A cool open layout with interesting bar stools, play area for the kids and lot’s of light make it a decent spot to sit and enjoy you coffee. They coffee is top notch and worth stopping in if you find yourself on the southend of Seattle. The only downfall for this place is that it closes at 4:30 so be sure to plan ahead.

Review -

I am a little biased toward this place since I used to live above it and still live only a block away. This spot is what the industrial arts district of Georgetown rotates around. This place is one of the only coffee shops in Seattle that actually has a local community feel to it. Lots of light, ads for art studios, dogs and great art on the walls. This is one of my favorite spots in all of the city. It has changed over the 6+ years I have lived in the neighborhood. It used to be littered with gutterpunks pokies online free, georgetown debates and people playing guitars, but has made way for more of a tattooed graphic designer hangout. It has raised it’s prices over the years, but still remains a great place to grab a cup. The coffee is always good with a Vita Bean and a La Marzocco. What the barista’s lack in social skills, they make up with their espresso drinks. The owners know what they are doing and all work hard to constantly upgrade the atmosphere and equipment. A must stop if you find yourself in our little hole in the wall neighborhood.

Bauhaus

This is by far my favorite place in Seattle. Located on the corner of Pine and Melrose, this place is the perfect glimpse into all things Seattle. A perfect mix of hipsters, students, coffee lovers and weirdo’s. Two levels provides the Bauhaus with a great layout and they pack seats in every nook and cranny of this place. A wall decorated with a giant bookshelf full of old reads and the rest of the place decorated with interesting looking people. The bean they use is very strong and flavorful. Something about it makes me thinks this is the way espresso was made since the caveman days. Not only do they pull a great shot, they also are the only place I have ever seen that sell Ding Dongs. Another great thing about this place is that there is a load of outside seating that you can sit in. Enjoy your espresso and watch the cast of characters that pollute the area.
