Sweet Lady Jane on Montana Avenue in Santa Monica
Sweet Lady Jane
One of my favorite people in Los Angeles took me to the Sweet Lady Jane for dessert. Well known by the Hollywood elite and a neighborhood favorite in both its locations (West Hollywood and Santa Monica), this gem of a patisserie is genuinely divine. The shop is small with an unassuming touch of cafeteria design. That is until you reach the pastry case, when it becomes the best thing outside of Austria for cakes. This is the purveyor of cakes to the stars, including wedding cakes for such people as Ellen Degeneres and Portia de Rossi. Everything in the shop looks delectable and tempts even the least sweet toothed among us.
