    I might recommend Sweet Lady Jane on Montana.

    For chocolate lovers, you might also try Essential Chocolates in Culver City.

            +1 on this - intensely chocolatey and not too sweet.

            Does the man like dark chocolate or does he have a sweet tooth? If latter, then Susiecakes. If former, then it's a slam dunk for Jamaica's Cakes' Basic Chocolate Cake.

              We love ordering cakes from Sugar Jones bakery.

                Buttercake on Pico. Friend turned me onto their chocolate cake, which I don't usually like.

                Don't know if they sell a whole cake but the Palm in WeHo has a great chocolate cake.

                Warning, although large, a single slice is $15.00.

                  $15 for a slice of cake is funny. I don't care if James Beard and Julia Childs rose from the dead to make it, that's just laughable.
