It’s National Chocolate Cake Day (our kind of day) so to celebrate, let’s check out some of the best places to get a really decent slice of gooey, sticky and delicious chocolate cake.
Famed for its Chelsea Buns, Fitzbillie’s can also, unsurprisingly, turn its hand to an outstanding chocolate cake.
Why not hit both shops and that way you’ll get two slices without the staff judging you?
Fitzbillies is at 51 Trumpington Street, and Bridge Street, Cambridge
You could really indulge yourself this National Chocolate Cake Day and order from a range of chocolate brownies including coffee and walnut, maple and pecan or toasted coconut.
Order from a range. Or just order a range.
Hotel Chocolat Cafe, Lion Yard, Cambridge
Harriet’s has an extensive tea menu.
We’re talking some serious page turning and decision making.
And of course, you’ll need a huge slice of chocolate cake to wash your tea down, or is it the other way around…?
Harriet’s, Green Street, Cambridge
This multi-award award-winning tearoom in Ely has mismatched-china and a charming living-room vibe.
If you’re going to get a good bit of homemade cake anywhere, it’s here.
Peacocks Tearoom, 65 Waterside, Ely.
Delicious, homemade and wonderful cakes.
One slice or two?
(Two, always two).
Afternoon Tease, King Street, Cambridge
You can have afternoon tea at Hotel Felix and enjoy a first class chocolate and hazel nut mini eclair as part Graffiti’s menu.
It’s not exactly chocolate cake, but trust us… you need this.
Hotel Felix, Huntingdon Road, Cambridge.
There’s always something going on at Hot Numbers.
Whether it’s great coffee, jazz nights, meet-ups or food vans.
But you know what else is going on at Hot Numbers?

Stickybeaks is a great place to meet up for a coffee or go for lunch.
And guess what?
They also make great cake!

Charlie’s Coffee Company
Charlie’s is warm, cosy, has a great play area for kids and you’ve got to try Charlie’s pizza, it’s like walking off Burleigh Street and being in Naples (pizza-wise that is) (it’s still raining outside in Cambridge).
Order a pizza, and for pudding, have a CHOCOLATE LION CAKE BAR.
