Seeing that this was the top-rated food establishment in Asheville, I had high hopes. I'm not a lover of chocolate, but I quite enjoy dark chocolate and desserts in general. We sampled several truffles, as well as a chocolate-covered fig. To me, everything was just okay, except the mocha truffle, which was DELICIOUS!!! Friendly staff, though.

I have a favorite chocolate shop in Paris that I have been visiting since I was seventeen years old. I have a favorite chocolate shop in Daytona that I have been visiting for ten years and now I have a favorite chocolate shop in Asheville. Wow! The flavor was magnificent, the choices unending. The people working there obviously loved what... More

Each little bite is worthy of consideration and counsel by the person behind the counter. As your little bites collect so does the cost, so choose wisely and enjoy with delicious deliberation!

Chocolate fetish has an amazing assortment of flavors, styles and creations for every chocolate lover (and even those of us who aren't!). I particularly got a bang out of the chocolate high heels they've created that I gifted to my partner who was thrilled. A must visit when in Asheville!

The chocolate is absolutely wonderful. They have quite a selection of gluten-free chocolates & truffles also. You can buy by the piece or pre-boxed assortments. The Easter specialty items were adorable. We were disappointed that the drinking chocolate wasn't available in the spring. But, of course, we brought a lot of chocolate home for Easter.

I usually do not go here though I was pleasantly surprised by their expanded menu. Ordered a cappuccino with house made coconut milk. Excellent alternative you won't be disappointed. Friendly, efficient staff. I have to say I liked the layout, though somewhat utilitarian you don't feel like you are sitting in a fish bowl environment. All in all a nice... More

Been here a few times. Great variety and selection. Always pleased. Had the Chasmoo chocolate disc and salted caramel. Both were excellent.
