Black Forest Cake

I'm in charge of finding a Black Forest cake for a friends birthday. Any suggestions about where a really good one is to be found? I will consider most any area to get to if it's really great cake.
i recently started a thread about cake and someone actually recommended the black forest cake from st phillips in woodbridge: http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/7618... perhaps give that a shot?
i've personally never had that particular cake from st phillips before but i've had several cakes from them and they have always been satisfying (particularly the chocolate raspberry one, and the strawberry shortcake). if you go, be sure to also grab a cannoli or two....
I used to get the kind that was like the German Schwarzwalder Kirschtorte from Gerhardt on Ellesmere/Belamy. Real chocolate & whipped cream. They did not keep.
My last visit though in 2009 - it looked like the place had changed hands.
I don't fancy the kind that lasts for days in the grocery store coolers for days.
