Any restaurants serve lemon cake?

Meeting a friend for dinner tomorrow night and I'm craving lemon cake! Any recommendations in Woodland Hills/Sherman Oaks or the Santa Monica/West LA/Venice/Culver City area? The only places I found are Cheesecake Factory and Guido's and I ate at Vito's recently.

    1. Huckleberry some times has lemon tea cake.

      1. Last time I was at Bestia, they had a wonderful lemon-poppy seed olive oil cake with a sambuca-meyer lemon sorbetto.

        Delicious, light, and very refreshing.

        I would suggest calling to see if it's on the menu.

        1. Marie Calendars has a lemon pie cake that is delicious. It has a light pie crust, filled with the lemon filling from a lemon meringue pie, and topped with lemon cake. Sounds strange, but it really is good. I bought it at the Northridge location. Not sure if it is a seasonal item or if it is available year round.

          1. re: brandygirl

            Thanks so much for the tip! I will definitely check out Marie Calendars this weekend and try a piece! Hopefully I can just get a slice and not have to buy the whole pie. It appears to be available for a limited time only. :(

          2. I had the lemon ice box cake at hart and the hunter the other night. quite good, and only 6 bucks which is fairly cheap for a dessert at a spot like that. It was a bit like a lemon meringue pie but with a lemon ice cream under the meringue. Not sure if that is what you are looking for, but thought i'd toss the idea out to you.
