When Life Hands You Meyer Lemons ...

Make limoncello*! At least that's what Mr. Momo does.

Thank you, Sophia, for the charming photo of Ms. Lemon’s luscious fruit!
Meet our Meyer lemon tree. Ms. Lemon has been beautifying the front window of Momo since our opening day in 2007, when she was given as a gift by Jennifer Habu. Just like our happy shop, she is a bright spot of cheer, a sunny yellow beacon during the oft grey winter months.

Ms. Lemon started out by yielding one plump lemon in her first year here. The next year ... two lemons. The year after that? Three lemons! And so she’s continued, gracing us with an ever-increasing and always appreciated bounty ... just as you do, dear Momo friends. Like Ms. Lemon, you’ve been lovely and steadfast and we appreciate each and every one of you!

Here’s to familiar faces, new faces, more smiles than we can count and a seven-lemon year in 2014.
