Introduction

Despite fierce competition, LA-based Sweet Lady Jane’s elegant tarts, layer cakes, and pies have remained the most popular among food experts and the Hollywood elite for more than 25 years. Owned and operated by Jane Lockhart, who has a taste for outstanding desserts that better balance sweet and savory, it’s been the source of wedding cakes for Tony Curtis, Bruce Springsteen, and Jennifer Lopez and deemed “ #1 Patisserie in the World” by National Geographic. Along with four appearances on Food Network and praise from O Magazine, InStyle, Los Angeles Magazine, Bon Appétit, the Los Angeles Times, New York Times, People, SLJ’s cherry pie graced the November 2015 cover of O Magazine as one of her Favorite Things, reminding dessert lovers everywhere that Sweet Lady Jane’s desserts are still the (perfectly flavored) icing on the proverbial cake.

About The Food

Anyone who eats with his or her eyes will tell you that Sweet Lady Jane’s presentations are downright stunning. Expertly designed and beautifully packaged, they’re visual feasts that impress long before the cake knife comes out of the drawer. But superiority doesn’t stop with looks. Here, everything is done by hand, using the finest imported chocolate, the freshest butter and cream, the highest quality in-season fruit, no mixes (as many bakeries do), and no preservatives. Perhaps most distinctive, Jane’s desserts aren’t overtly sweet. Instead, they accentuate the natural flavors of the ingredients, resulting in desserts of distinction that have kept Sweet Lady Jane at the top of the desserts list with critics, Hollywood celebrities, and Southern Californians for more than 25 years.

Meet The Owner

As with most great inventions, Sweet Lady Jane was born out of need; after finding store-bought desserts too sweet and too commercial, Los Angeles-based Jane Lockhart set out in her home kitchen to create patisserie with flavor balance, perfect texture, and a more natural sense of beauty. Apparently, she wasn’t the only one craving more sophisticated, soulful desserts. Though she had a full-time job in administration at Cedar-Sinai Hospital, demand for her baked goods grew quickly. She first began selling to local restaurants, but she quickly left her job to keep up with orders. In mid-1988, she opened Sweet Lady Jane Bakery on Melrose Avenue and has been catering to the A-List and everyday dessert lovers ever since. Today there are four Southern California locations offering a taste of dessert perfection.
