You cut short a miserable date with a Silicon Beach tech bro, and now you’re stuck in Santa Monica waiting out the traffic. You can’t drink because you have to drive home, but you still want to drown your sorrows in something. How about a slice of cake the size of an entire cake? Sweet Lady Jane is a warm neighborhood bakery that stays open until 11pm on the weekends and offers a huge selection of rich and sugary baked goods. It’s not usually busy, so you can feel comfortable shoveling half your weight’s worth of German Chocolate cake into your mouth while you re-open Tinder.
