The long awaited Sweet Lady Jane opened on Montana Avenue in Santa Monica on Wednesday. I stopped by on Saturday and I must say I expected it to look a lot better inside after all the months of construction. The people behind the counter were not rude like at the Melrose location, but this was opening week, and they were pretty green. Give them a few weeks.
Everything looks wonderful and I will let you know about the cakes on Thursday because a friend is having a birthday and she ordered two cakes from them. I did end up buying a red velvet cupcake after I was told the chocolate chip coffee cake, the size of a muffin, was $11.00. The cupcake was a bargain at $4.25. I have to admit it was good, but I like Sprinkles better. They are twice the size and a dollar less.
They have about ten tables and serve lunch, but there were no menus so I don't know about prices. They were pretty crowded so I guess not everyone is watching their pennies.
