Best Chocolate Cake in Portland?

My extended family will be celebrating my father's 60th birthday in mid-coast Maine in October. Dad's favorite dessert is chocolate cake -- no frills, no mocha/coffee/stout/fruit adornments, just straight-up, all-American chocolate cake with chocolate icing.

We'll likely be stopping in Portland for provisions on our way to the rental house. Any suggestions for bakeries, etc. in Portland (or elsewhere in mid-coast Maine, for that matter) with top-notch classic chocolate cake?

  1. For unadulterated chocolate birthday cake in Portland, Two Fat Cats Bakery is quite tasty! You'd probably want to order ahead and pick it up to ensure getting the shape/size you're looking for. They'll decorate for you, as well (if you're into that sort of thing).
