Bellden Cafe in Bellevue


Bellden Cafe is one of my favorite cafes in Bellevue. We finally have a few options on the Eastside beside Starbucks.

In Kirkland: Deru Market and Little Brother. In Bellevue, Cafe Cesura and now Bellden Cafe.

This is a hidden gem where I go all the time now. The staff is always really nice.

They offer a few food options like sandwiches or pastries. I had once a tasty ricotta avocado toast and I also tasted a pain au chocolat (chocolate croissant) and a brioche filled with Nutella, both super good.

They have two small rooms on the side of the main room where you can have a meeting or just conversation. It is not so private though but however it is great.

They validate parking in the parking garage.

Louis Kahn, The Power of Architecture

New exhibition at the Bellevue Art Museum.

It is organized by Vitra Design Museum and is the first major retrospective of Kahn’s work.

You’ll see pictures and drawings of early works such as single-family houses, but also the Institute in La Jolla, California and the model of the National Assembly Building in Dhaka, Bangladesh.

Don’t miss the interviews with architects such as Frank Gehry, Renzo Piano, Peter Zumthor, and Sou Fujimoto.
