Whew, after reading all these reviews, I went in prepared for abuse, but I must've hit them at a good time (or could it be, maybe they turned over a new leaf?). I had a lovely coffee and croissant (crunchy, tender and large!), took a seat

Pros: Flavors, pastry decor great. Croissants, authentic - great.

Cons: Tight space

.

I dont even want to go into specific detail about what a bummer the whole experience has been. The staff acts as if a paying customer is a complete inconvenience. The quality is a joke compared to the price. Im just glad I know better

Pros: cant think of one

Cons: price, attitude, everything basically

Pros: triple berry cake is delish!

Cons: annoying staff

Sweet Lady Jane has the best three berry cake with whipped cream frosting and white cake. It is so amazingly delicious that I don't ever venture out to try something new.

Negative reviews about this place only prove one thing:

A lot of STUPID people own computers.

The staff, the food, and the desserts are all excellent. I have had the pleasure of dining here a lot, and even had my wedding cake made here,

Pros: The best desserts in the city, awesome sandwiches, etc.

Cons: a lot of self-absorbed needy customers

Went there today to try their Cakes, ordered a slice of Chocolate cake and a slice of Flan for my wife. Host rudely said $15 even. Thought to my self, this better be the best slice of Cake for $8, especially in this economy. How

I've made the mistake of coming here a couple of times, and each time I was appaled by the rudeness of the staff. Not so sweet, this lady Jane. They lack most common courtesy. I will NEVER come here again.

I'll keep this short and sweet - like their cakes and unlike their service which was 100% bitchy and ruined our anniversary. Friday 3.27.09 we went there after our anniversary dinner to "revisit" our wedding cake - the Triple Berry. The main waitress (the ugly dark haired one, not the cute blonde) said they were out so I opted for the Triple Sensation (not nearly as delish) and my better half opted for the Oreo Tiramisu (delish but very very rich). Ten minutes later as they were serving us, a cute couple sat down next to our table and ordered - you guessed it - the Triple Berry! My better half asked our waitress who harshly quacked, "humm, I guess we do have it". She didn't utter "Oh my, let me change that out for you" or even, "my bad, let me give you a slice to go" RATHER SHE ROLLED HER EYES AND WALKED AWAY! Then the cute couple next to us heard how rude our waitress was and asked us what happened. In soft voices we told them. A few minutes later the waitress said "you know what - you can leave" and she kicked us out. We are frequent, respectful, tasteful, and classy patrons who have never ever been treated this way (not even by Cynthia when she still ran Cynthia's on 3rd). Honestly - while the desserts are to die for, their servers can go to hell.

Pros: Triple Berry is the BEST cake ever

Cons: Do you like being treated like *$%^&@*&!

I was here for lunch. The soup and food was only ok. No parking, and the seating is limited. Sandwich were tasty.
I would check it out again. The service was pleasant.

Sweet Lady jane has the best cakes and sweets I have ever tasted. The frosting is just out of this world and you can get any kind of filling imagineable. Prices are a bit high but once in a while very worth it if you need something sweet.

The cakes from here are sooo good and "light" tasting (though I'm sure not light in calories), it's unbelievable. Try the white cake with fruit - it's like eating sweet air. Mmm. Perfect for weddings or parties.

PROS: Best cakes
CONS: Calories

Every single cake I have tried there was amazing! Even my husband, who usually does not like cake loves their cakes. Their are slightly pricy but well worth the price. The tea room is very small (3 or 4 tables) but a really nice place to meet a friend over tea and cake. Everything is good, but I think that their tarts are particularly good.

PROS: great quality cakes and tarts
CONS: $$$; small, often crowded tea room
