Lemon Bars!

kachoo | Apr 25, 2011 02:22 PM

So I've been searching for a perfect lemon bar in my work neighborhood and I'm hoping to get your help. I work in FiDi on Montgomery between Sacramento and Commercial and have been on the hunt for 2 months now. I can't possibly walk into every place that might potentially have lemon bars and try everyone...as much as I'd like to.

a "Perfect" lemon bar to me is:
1. not too eggy,
2. not too much crust
3. excitingly tart and lemony
4. soft and gooey to the touch where your fingers get all sticky from having to break off the crust

I haven't tried to many places, and I haven't been impressed with the ones that I tried:

1. Manhattan Hub - their lemon bars were ok, but I wish they more lemony
2. Cafe Madeleine - I had REALLY high hopes for this one since their pastries are so delicious. TO dense and eggy, the crust was too thick

Anyone know of a place?
