In a review of Oren’s Hummus Shop in Palo Alto, YSZ approved of the vegetable kebab and the Israeli chopped salad, but thought the house-made lemonade hit a sour note: It was far too tart for YSZ or her kids.

Should warm weather ever return to our shores, where are the best lemonades in the Bay?

Oakland’s Holy Land may have the ne plus ultra of lemonades—it’s mentioned in many threads. Describing it as “a beautiful mint-green frothy slushie with bits of pulp and mint,” rworange declares it magic.

For San Francisco–based drinks, hounds praise the ginger lemonade at Burma Superstar, straight-up lemonade at Cafe Zitouna, and Woodhouse Fish Co.’s French-style DIY lemonade with a sidecar of simple syrup.
