So choosing from its rotating menu of cakes served by the slice can be hard. But I love coconut, so I knew what I wanted the moment I saw the coconut craze cake in the display case.
This is also the best choice for the coconut-lover who can’t decide between white or chocolate cake.
At $6, the slice is a generous portion of a chocolate layer sandwiched between two white layers, all topped with cream cheese frosting and toasted coconut.
It was rich. It was moist. The silken texture was nicely balanced by the toasted flakes of coconut.
Best of all, the frosting was sweet without being cloying.
I paired the cake with a $6 glass of Korbel Brut champagne for a dry counterpoint to the sweet bites.
Per our group’s yum meter, the coconut cake took top honors, followed by the red velvet and then salted caramel.
