Stine and I came here for a small bite to eat and ordered a bowl of Soup du Jour to share along with a cone of fries. Since there was a bit of a wait we shared a bit of small talk with our cashier, which was trying really hard to kill time- it only made us laugh which was nice, considering how stressful it was parking post holiday season at the mall.
We were seated and served very quickly, our waiter knew we were sharing a bowl of the soup but gave me a cup of soup so we didn't have to share. He was so kind to do so! The soup was tomato based, had cuts of chicken and pieces of angel hair pasta. Simple, savory and delicious. It comes with a baked slice of bread topped with cheese to a fine crisp which serves as a great crouton.
The fries are always delicious and an easy entree to order. It comes to the table, hot and crispy along with a delicious Kalamata dipping sauce. You can ask for ranch if you don't like olives.
It's an ideal place to go to talk to a friend, to work on your laptop, to kill time. I wouldn't go there to drink the coffee by itself or to eat the food. The coffee is not the best, and neither are the baked goods. The cakes are a bit on the buttery side. But the variety of the food is good, if you are hungry you can always find something.
I have a really bad selfish tendency to not review places that I absolutely LOVE. I like to keep these places on the DL, but I'll get over it for regal-cafe-pizzeria. because they deserve their props. They do everything perfect! I've been racking my brain to even list one thing I don't like about this place and all I could come up with is that sometimes their wood door is hard to open when it's cold out. That's it! Everything else is perfect!
The only thing that stops me from visiting them everyday is the fact that they're on the top of Queen Anne and my butt is too lazy to hike up the counterbalance everyday.
Regal-Cafe-Pizzeria Great Summer – Regal-cafe-pizzeria is a great summer, day-time cafe camp-out. Fun staff, wonderful coffee and treats, this cafe offers a variety of seating options (both indoor and outdoor) while playing fun music.
It is great to sit here, work, study, read a book and watch the neighborhood congregate, pass by and get a great cup of coffee.

The Perimeter of The Market – Words can not fully describe how eclectic this place is. There are many types of foods that you will not find anywhere else.
The perimeter of the market is dotted with cafe's from a Fish one, street deserts, juices, bakery and Mexican food.
I oped for the fish cafe, I had the fried talipa vera cruz. There was several pieces of lightly battered talipa covered in a fresh mix of olives, peppers onions and tomatoes. It came with 5 fresh corn tortillas, rice and beans.
I took the meal to the other side of the store to have it with my friend who had Mexican food. I enhanced my meal with the many items from the salsa bar, included fried peppers, and a avocado salsa. It was a great meal especially for the price.
My friend had the barbacoa, which he also really enjoyed.
Part of the fun was the sheer exotic nature of the whole market. My co worker who is from mexico said it was just like the markers in Mexico.
I will return again as there are many many exotic (to me) things I still wish to try and at the low prices I can afford to try them all.
Regal-Cafe-Pizzeria is One Of My Favorite Places – Regal-cafe-pizzeria is One of my favorite places
Grab a cart and have a blast wandering around taking in the smells, trying to make a decision on what you are going to take home.
They have everything.
Baked goods. A huge selection of cheeses at good prices.
Cooked meals that are always really really good. Always.
Best chopped liver, ever.
Homemade. Homemade. Homemade.
I LOVE the Horseradish scallion cream cheese. SO GOOD.
Making a pit stop here is part of my Friday night ritual.Um, and some of my weeknights,weekdays, pretty much any time I can get to it, too.
The Ultimate Bagel – The ultimate bagel can be found here. Seriously.., the way they should be as they are the consistency of exactly what a NY bagel should be! Perfect dough, boiled in salty water to perfection, then baked so perfectly that they are crunchy on the bottom and chewy on the inside. Not too large, like Essa (which are ridiculous). Just the perfect size. MMMMMmmmmm!!!

About For Regal-Cafe-Pizzeria – Finally!!! I got to try what all the hype was about for regal-cafe-pizzeria!! The food here was amazing, healthy, and DELICIOUS!!! The portions were pretty big, so don't think you are paying an additional dollar sign to your lunch for a small size plate.
I came out of there stuffed and satisfied. I came in around 11:20am, and 20 minutes later, there was a line out of the door. Just in time to beat the rush, I thought to myself.
