Best Places to Get Chocolate Cake in the Hudson Valley

Today (January 27) is National Chocolate Cake Day according to the National Day calendar. It got us thinking about the best places in the Hudson Valley to get a good chocolate cake.

Off the top of my head, believe it or not, I remember having a really good piece of chocolate cake at a restaurant of all places. It was at the Acropolis Diner in Poughkeepsie. Now, I don’t know if they make their desserts on site at the Acropolis, or source them from elsewhere, but I can tell you that they offer a damn good piece of chocolate cake. My mom also bakes a wonderful 4 layer chocolate cake with German and semi-sweet chocolate between each layer, and frosted with a cool whip and chocolate curls on top. Well, we asked the Hudson Valley where their favorite spot for a good chocolate cake is, and here’s how it went. The list may surprise you.
