Description: Regent Bakery & Cafe is a sprawling wonderland kitty-corner from Spinasse and Artusi on Capitol Hill. Imparting a certain clipped elegance, the room is spotless, window-lined, and outfitted with much newness and coordination. You'll also find: overhead menus for coffee and bubble tea ($3, add 50 cents for pudding grass jelly); glass display cases lined with fancy desserts, their precise garnishes resembling mythical jewels (caramel mousse for $3.85); shelves for trillions of Chinese baked goods that look delicious, so you might as well just get them all (coconut bun $1.50, sausage bun $1.70, pear croissant $2.30); a sleek little cocktail lounge with granite counters, colorful lights, and a bartender happy to discuss the hilarious brutality of Yelp restaurant reviews with you; booths and tables everywhere because there's also a full-ass Chinese restaurant (almond chicken $10.95); and perhaps the same guy from a couple Friday nights ago—the well-dressed one with the shrieky voice, who was recalling some disaster involving a collapsing bridge.

Happy hours: Sun–Mon 3 pm– close, Tues–Sat 4–7 pm, and Fri–Sat 10 pm–close.

Happy-hour drink specials: $5 select cocktails—the Grape Nehi has vodka, Chambord liqueur, fresh lemon and lime, and soda; $3 drafts—Manny's, Old Seattle Lager, Gallant Maiden Hefeweizen, more; $3.50 wells; $3.50 house wine.

Happy-hour food specials: Nice choices and fair prices, such as $5 mini cucumber salad, $6 Hong Kong oyster omelet, $4 crispy wontons, $2 spring rolls, $5 Taiwanese-style popcorn chicken. recommended

Holy hell... Their website says they are closed on Tuesdays, and for some reason I always want this on Tuesdays. Then you promote it on Tuesday... My life got tipped turned upside down...

Piece of advice Marti:

If you're going to plug a place on a particular day of the week, you might want to first check as to whether or not the place actually happens to be open on that particular day...

This place has really awesome food, and there never seems to be anyone there.

@1 and 2: Not Marti's fault—we should've checked. Sorry about that!
