Bakery for Lemon Bars?

jillso | Nov 20, 2004 12:51 PM

I'm looking for a good lemon bar or lemon square. Not icky sweet but nice and lemony or a little bit tart. I'm not a big fan of the sticky-icky sweetened condensed milk with a little lemon juice kind of lemon bar. Montrose Bakery has lemony filling sandwiched between two layers of pie crust, which I like a lot, but I've gotten stale bakery products there once too often so I'm not going back. Nothing worse than a stale, curdled lemon square! I'll go anywhere from Claremont to Redondo for a remarkable lemon bar...but within a few miles of Hollywood would be preferred.
