Our New Favorite Spot on Montana Avenue

sljlogo.jpgSometimes you don’t know a place is missing from a neighborhood until it opens. That’s how I feel about the new Sweet Lady Jane that opened a few months ago in Santa Monica up towards the east-end of the shop on Montana Avenue. I just hadn’t realized before – there really wasn’t anywhere to buy a perfect cherry pie (or a chocolate cake) or a delicious croissant or stop in for lunch and feel like just at the table next to you someone’s having an interesting conversation while you have one yourself accompanied by a perfect curried chicken salad sandwich (not an easy thing by the way) or home-made soup or if you need something cozy, a perfect grilled cheese, and the promise of a perfect cappucino (even though you don’t drink coffee at lunch).

And you won’t be able to help yourself – you’ll bring something home for dessert that night, too – and if you’re anything like us, place an order for one or two pies for Sunday night (and maybe a chocolate cake) because you’ve just been inspired by Sweet Lady Jane to invite people over for Sunday dinner.

Welcome to the neighborhood. Now, if we could only convince Ponte Vecchio to stay, Montana Avenue would be perfectly book-ended. But sadly, Ponte Vecchio is moving on to new digs so if I were you I’d race over (Montana and 7th) because she’s having an amazing sale on Italian china even if you didn’t know you needed a mug and while you’re at it, a couple more dessert plates because you just might want to drive up the street to Sweet Lady Jane...
