Where is the best chocolate cake in Northern Virginia or DC? A friend is having her birthday on Friday and I'd like some recommendations.

  1. I've just had some chocolate cake and chocolate cheesecake from the Amphora Bakery in Vienna and it was excellent. It's located in a small strip mall neat the Amphora restaurant in Vienna.

    1. Hands down Alexandria Pastry Shop in Bradlee Center off King Street.

      1. Pastries by Randolph in Arlington has excellent cakes...never specifically had a chocolate cake but I'm sure they have a great one. May be a little pricey though.

        1. Chocolate mousse cake from the Alexandria Pastry Shop gets my vote - its on King Street east of the king street exit from 395
