Today is January 27, which means it’s National Chocolate Cake Day! Who could ever resist one of these deliciously moist chocolate deserts? Chocolate cakes are there for you when you’re celebrating, when you’re depressed, when you don’t really know what you want in life except for chocolate cake. Chocolate cakes are here for you, so it’s only fair on their special day that you be there for them too.

And by that, I mean here are 3 Standout Boston Chocolate Cake places.

If you know anything about Mike’s Pastry Cafe, or if you clicked the link above, you’d know that they serve delicious sweets at an affordable price. Famous for their variety of huge cannoli, Mike’s Pastry also serves up brownies, cookies, and yes, chocolate cake. You can’t order online though, you have to make a stop in-store. And when you step in and smell the sugary confection lovers air, you won’t regret making the trip.

The prices of pastries vary slightly by store, but you’ll be able to get a delicious assortment of all things chocolate at Mike’s Pastry. Go for their brownies, or try their chocolate mousse, and according to online reviews, their chocolate cake is nothing to scoff at either. Considering the majority of their menu is under $10, and a considerable amount under $5, Mike’s Pastry is a stop you have to make this National Chocolate Cake Day.

L.A. Burdick has prices that might scare away the faint of heart, but chocoholics will know that this chocolate is worth the money. The menu has some variation based on location and timing (holidays have special menus), but there is always something divine to look forward to if you’re planning a trip to L.A. Burdick.

L.A. Burdick has decadent chocolate assortments like their Chocolate Dipped Fruit Assortment (15.00-52.00) or their Chocolate Covered Pates de Fruits ($24.00). But today we’re celebrating Chocolate Cake, so we need to turn some attention to their divine Harvard Square Cake (28.00). It’s a checkered rich chocolate cake that is “studded with roasted walnuts, topped with a dark chocolate ganache with a hint of rum.” Yum, and even better paired with one of their many freshly brewed teas or coffees.

I can’t think of a better place to fulfill your chocolate cravings than Max Brenner – a chocolate restaurant that will serve you chocolate appetizers, chocolate entrees, chocolate desserts, and chocolate drinks to boot!

So it’s only fair on this choco-licious holiday that we celebrate Max Brenner’s delicious chocolate cake. Anything from their menu is worth indulging over, but consider trying one of their fondues, like their Classic European Fondue (23.25) which comes with bananas, strawberries, marshmallows, sponge cake and your choice of two chocolates and toffee. Or how about their famous Chocolate Mess Party for Two (16.25) a delicious mud pie cake dripping with chocolate ganache, whipped cream, vanilla ice cream and sliced bananas and strawberries? Absolutely delicious, and befitting National Chocolate Cake Day.
