311 E Congress St, Tucson, AZ 85701
The first chocolate cake on our list is from up Cup Cafe. This cafe is located inside of Hotel Congress, a hip and trendy historic hotel in downtown Tucson. They serve breakfast, lunch, dinner, and most importantly desserts. Their creamy dreamy tres leches chocolate cake is just as decadent and delicious as it sounds. Enjoy your dessert al fresco with one of their specialty coffee drinks like the Cowboy Coffee.
2616 N Campbell Ave, Tucson, AZ 85719
Blue Willow restaurant serves comfort food and is open from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m., meaning breakfast (until 3), lunch, and dinner are all options here. Their dessert menu is pretty exciting and has a chocolate cake that is aesthetically very beautiful, and just as delicious. The dark chocolate frosting is sweet, but not too sweet, and the cake itself is moist. Check out their gift shop while you’re at it!
420 W Magee Rd, Tucson, AZ 85704
Bottega Michelangelo is seriously one of the most romantic little restaurants in town. This Italian eatery is perfect for a date night, or even a brunch date! Bring a friend or someone special and split a slice of their Chocolate Mousse Cake. It is insanely decadent, and its appearance alone might’ve had certain Italian artists painting its likeness as a fond and delicious memory. Wink, wink.
20 E Congress St #110, Tucson, AZ 85701
At HeeMee Coffee + Bakery you will find an assortment of pastries and desserts that are baked from scratch by chef HeeMee Kim. This charming and sweet cafe also happens to have a very tasty Chocolate Coffee Mousse Cake that sells out very fast. Make sure you get there early and try it for yourself! If you’re craving something savory after, this place also has awesome lunch specials as well!
120 South Avenida del Convento, Tucson, Arizona 85745
Who better to go to for a chocolate cake than an award-winning cake shop like Dolce Pastello? This cake shop is located in Mercado San Agustin and their Tres Leches cakes are the real deal. Their chocolate and German chocolate flavors are delectable and you can order them by the slice or get a whole cake. After trying a bite though, you might regret buying only one slice — so buy the whole cake and share it… or don’t. Eat the whole thing. We won’t say a word.
