Sweet Lady Jane is My Favorite Bakery!! A place I must visit whenever I am blessed to be in SoCal. Love the Triple Berry Cake! The café is small, but enjoyable for lunch or dessert and coffee. I have been pleased with everything I have eaten there, but I have to say the sandwiches are huge, good to share or get half a sandwich and salad. There is a second location in Santa Monica, but I prefer the original.

Don't order dessert from the restaurant menu, make dessert a destination event and go to Sweet Lady Jane. The pies are absolutely outstanding. Avoid the cupcakes, they are disappointing.

The sit-down aspect of SLJ was not too fabulous -- it looks a bit rundown and cramped. The waiter was pretty helpful, but I thought it odd that the people in the front didn't know what was in the cakes that were being made in the back. It's probably okay to buy your cakes to go here, but I probably wouldn't eat in again.

I have ordered birthday cakes for special occasions from Sweet Lady Jane but had never eaten a meal in the quaint restaurant. The curry chicken salad and tuna salad were delicious. It is a very small eatery on Melrose and if you are in the area it is worth stopping by for some pastries and a great lite lunch.

i had breakfast at this place as I could not find anything else on Melrose on Sunday morning. It's not big, but quite cozy. The home-made granola with fresh fruit and yoghurt is really something you should try. Very tasty! Cappucino came in a big wide cup with a big layer of foam that tasted good.
