Sorry not to just reply to this post, but it happened just at the switch and I really want an answer and don't want my question lost. Not sure if the 'new' flag will show up or not.

Although they only make one cake, Arizmendi Bakery on 9th between Irving and Judah in the Inner Sunset has a killer and I mean killer chocolate cake. I believe it's $28 for a whole cake. You can stop by there and buy a slice to try before purchasing a whole one.
Do all Arizmundi's make chocolate cake? I haven't seen it in the East Bay. Or is this something you just need to know to order ... a secret Arizmundi menu, so to speak.
I need a replacement for the old Just Dessert's chocolate cake which was my ideal ... not fancy or frou-frou'd ... just ... chocolate cake.
It seems to me that Arizmundi would be the kind of place that would do that.
So if you know of an Arizmundi in the East Bay that sells it ... have cake, will travel.
