For a quick second it seemed like the original Sweet Lady Jane on Melrose, purveyor of the famed triple berry shortcake and not bad at the red velvet thing either, had gone by the wayside and folded into its newer Santa Monica branch. But, devout patrons, fear not. Despite the papered over windows and notice of closure signage, Sweet Lady Jane is only temporarily shuttered due to a pipe which burst on Tuesday. As it now stands, management is unsure when the bakery will reopen. In the meantime, ink.sack next door has Mexican chocolate chip cookies and mocha hazelnut cookies. [EaterWire]
Update: A new posting on the door states that management hopes to reopen by tomorrow.
