Microsoft favorite Regent Bakery & Cafe is expanding to (where else) Capitol Hill. Capitol Hill Seattle blog leads off its weekly food and drink news-o-rama post with news that a Regent outpost will land near 14th & Pine late this year. The establishment offers a mix of cakes, Chinese buns and pastries on the bakery side, while the cafe serves Chinese dishes including hot pots and chow fun. The Seattle Regent will also have a liquor license.
Apparently the cakes are good, says CHS: "Story goes that the guys from Valve Software were such fans that they incorporated one of Regent's cakes into their popular Portal game. "
