chocolate cake in los angeles

so a friend and I are craving .... CRAVING... for a great chocolate cake. A chocolate cake that is not too sweet but rich in flavor — moist spongy crumbs that aren't too coarse and just makes you swoon.

we've had one that was pretty good at kincaids in redondo beach but they don't always have it.

willing to drive in the LA area for this one craving... any suggestions????? :D

  1. Are you looking for a whole cake or a place where you can sit down and be served a slice?

        if you mean regular old-fashioned, betty crocker style cake: here's a few,

        chocalate layer cake at Hollywood Hills Coffee Shoppe if i'ts still around of course

        chocolate layer from spago is amazing if they have it's a slender slice with about 10 distinct layers served with a scoop of gelato or ice cream.

        also, a delicous, and recessionary priced slice ($1.95) at Mom's BBQ.

        is it a molten cake? or a regular chocolate cake?

        1. re: mermy

          it's just flour less but amazing.. just thought of another place... Chaya off of robertson south of 3rd. It's Molten and really kicks ass.. Ask for Candy and tell them that Tony sent ya, Cristian's friend.. Go for brunch... it's amazing

      2. Have you tried King's hawaiian Restaurant on Sepulveda?

        1. Mom's BBQ in Van Nuys at Vanowen and Hazeltine.
          Continental Bakery in Valley Village, on Burbank Blvd. just east of Whitsett

          1. Jamaicas cakes by the slice, mini cake or big cake.
