We were in Asheville for the afternoon, and it was chilly out, so we stopped in for some warm drinks. We went to the to-go type side that's next to the main entrance with the long line of people waiting outside to be seated, as we just wanted some drinks. My daughter got a hot chocolate, which she drank in... More

We visit Asheville a few times a year and French Broad is always on the list of things to do. All of the chocolate is incredible: from the bars to the truffles, desserts and especially the drinking chocolate! This year, we requested a special tasting experience and were treated with enthusiasm, and thoughtfulness. Brett was engaging and entertaining with an... More

I think this is a great dessert stop as long as you love chocolate. With a slice of carrot cake going for almost $6.00, it's not cheap. Great atmosphere and friendly service.

This was a stop on a food tour we did and it was mind blowing good. They have all types of chocolate! They have red wine too which I really like with chocolate. There is a store in the back of the lounge where you can buy chocolate bars and gelati. Ask for a taste of the gelati if you... More

I am astounded that there could be anything less than a stellar review for this place. I loved every single thing about our visit. We tried three different cakes (maple with smoked salt, highland stout, and the quintessential chocolate, a hot milk chocolate, a Oaxaca hit chocolate, and a latte. Every single thing was stellar. The cakes were moist and... More

Love stopping here every time we are in Asheville. Great place to grab a coffee or if you love chocolate, try the drinking chocolate. And of course pick out some chocolates for and afternoon snack and a box to take home. I love the classic caramels, etc., but branch out and try the Chai latte, fresh raspberry, lemongrass & ginger... More

We visited the chocolate lounge after a theater performance. At least the line was shorter then than it had been earlier in the day when we tried to go! Nice selection of yummy looking desserts and beverages. Everything we got was good. My only complaint was that my coffee was not hot enough for my personal taste. My husband had... More

If you love chocolate in all forms this lounge should be the focal point of your existence. Liquid truffles, cakes, hot chocolates, ice cream, it's all here in just about every form. This place is all about great chocolate using as many locally sourced goods as possible. If you can't find something you like here, something is very wrong with... More
