Traditional Recipes Use Limons

Note that both of these recipes originally called for limon, which is neither a lemon nor a lime, but actually a key lime, which has attributes of both fruits. If the bar has them available, by all means ask for one; if they have egg whites on hand, they might just have key limes available as well.
