More than chocolates. Gourmet treats from cake to ice cream and various truffles to go with espresso drinks. Asheville has become a foodie dream destination and it wouldn't be a fulfilling trip without a visit to this place. Always a line, but flows quick with excellent service and plenty of staff at hand. Good for local treats to bring back... More

There is no chance of picking the wrong thing! Enjoy delicious chocolate drinks, cakes, cakes, whatever you can imagine. My favorite it the mouse. Or the Quintessential chocolate cake and wash it down with a salted Carmel hot Chico late. I always place an order to eat here and some to go home with me. Be prepared to indulge yourself!... More

To kick off the Valentine Weekend we enjoyed a brief visit to the chocolate lounge. The Chocolate Creme Brulee was sublime when paired with a Mocha. I have never had anything here that is not great.

If you're looking for a popular dessert place to visit in Asheville, then look no further. It's not uncommon to see a long line going out the door. It's conveniently located in Pack Square near the Vance Monument. There's a good selection of ice cream, truffles, coffee, etc. with a nice atmosphere on the inside. Decent prices.

No line out the door tonight which was awesome! We paired a cab with a chocolate cheesecake, A Malbec with chocolate creme brûlée and a cab with a lavender creme brûlée. Very tasty.

My husband and I and our friends sampled fabulous chocolate delicacies while we were on a Moveable Feast tour. We loved it so much that we stopped by on Valentine's Day for dessert! You have GOT to experience the ambience, the menu and hear how the owners are intent on nurturing connections to the source of their food. You will... More

We stopped by after dinner for a special dessert and coffee. You can satisfy any chocolate craving here with such rich, decadent choices. Each truffle or dessert is expertly crafted. The lounge moved to this new location to expand and it is still a place you may have to stand in line but, it is well worth the wait.

An abundance of different types of chocolate treats, not inexpensive, but very tasty. Lines can be long sometimes. The new location has helped with lines seating, but still takes time.

Enjoyed a relaxing indulgence with my husband to celebrate an early Valentine's Day. Had the dark hot chocolate and a few truffles. The hazelnut crunch was a nice surprise and quite flavorful. They have so many unusual flavors, and some I've not been adventurous enough to try. The Budda was very nice, as well. Table in the back was far... More
