Sweet Lady Jane, West Hollywood, CA

Sweet Lady Jane Restaurant Review

: Everything at this homey café and bakery, from almond croissants and cream cheese puffs to lemon bars and boysenberry pie --- there are more than 100 items to choose from --- is made from the freshest ingredients. Sweet Lady Jane is known for its cheesecakes, decorated cakes and apricot-almond tarts, and many a celebrity wedding has included a cake from Jane Lockhart's famous shop. Don't miss the traditional English fruitcakes during the winter holidays. At any time of year, grab one of the tiny tables and enjoy a coconut cupcake and coffee, or a cup of tea and a date-oatmeal bar. Some fine sandwiches like turkey meatloaf or egg salad make this a worthy destination during the lunch hour --- if you're lucky enough to score a seat.
