Seattle’s first-ever Vietnamese coffee bar, Coffeeholic House, is gearing up to open its doors later this month.
The new concept is brought to us by Chen Dien and Trang Cao and will be located in Columbia City at 3700 South Hudson Street.

The menu at Coffeeholic House will feature traditional and modern variations of Vietnamese coffee.
The cafe prides itself on using organic Nguyen Coffee Supply beans, specialty coffee beans imported straight from Da lat, Vietnam.
“Vietnam is most famous for its Robusta beans. Yet in the United States, almost every major roaster works exclusively with Arabica beans,” explains the founder of Nguyen Coffee Supply, Sahra Nguyen. “We wanted to introduce the bold and delicious flavors of Vietnamese coffee to the US, which is why we’re pioneering a new kind of coffee movement.“
The spot will be serving up cafe classics such as croissants and scones, but we’re most excited for their banh mi bagels, a first for Seattle.
“They don’t really have banh mi bagels anywhere in Seattle, we just thought, Hmmm, what’s something good with ca phe sua da (Vietnamese coffee)? We wanted something unique, so we tested it out with a bagel and it was BOMB,” a representative of the cafe told Daily Hive.
While the cafe is projected to open on February 22, 2020, owners have said that the date itself may change, depending on factors like the construction progress and inspections — they are happy to report to Daily Hive that construction is 90% complete as of February 5.
Coffeeholic House’s overall goal is to introduce Seattle to the famous coffee culture of Vietnam. “The products will be reflecting ourselves. After moving to the States, we adapted to new cultures and became unique individuals,” said Dien and Cao. “Life is too short for bad coffee, and we can’t wait to share our creations with you.”
