The best dessert

We enjoyed a delicious selection of chocolate pastries. Each was large enough to share. Other pastry options and candies are available

My partner and I stopped in after dinner to pick up dessert to take back to the hotel. It was so busy we had to wait in line but was well worth it! We hand picked eight different truffles from a very friendly young woman who patiently answered all of our questions as if she had all the time in... More

This place is awesome. There seems to always be a line here but it is worth it! (Also, if you want to skip the line they own the shop right next door that sells the same ice cream, truffles and chocolate treats) The Coconut Macaroon Brownie is one of the best brownies we have ever tasted!!!

Visited the lounge on a Thursday (late morning) to get my husband a latte and me some truffles. Our server was friendly (although the obscure pop culture references made our conversation a bit stilted at times!) and offered some great suggestions. My husband declared his latte 'perfect' and I've been enjoying my caramels and truffles ever since. We were only... More

Visited on a warm afternoon. There was a pretty long line, but it moved quickly - and gave me time to decide. The dark chocolate pot de creme and cold sipping chocolate were both wonderful. The pot de creme was perfectly smooth and very intense - perfect. Lots of people were getting ice cream, and it looked good, too -... More

This restaurant is super popular and typically has very long lines! If you are just looking for chocolate treats or a nice cup of gelato walk a little bit further down to way to chocolate and milk. It's the same company, but I instead of a lounge area, it just offers the treats. They even have Vegan gelato for those... More

I highly recommend stopping at the Chocolate Lounge at least once on your Asheville trip! The liquid truffle is to die for. I recommend the salted caramel. It is also nice that the restaurant has easily accessible tap water.

Thanks so much for writing your review! The salted caramel liquid truffle is one of my favorites as well. Have you tried dipping a shortbread cookie in it? It's amazing! More

We visited on a week night, but the line was still out the door. It moved pretty quickly & once we were inside, we started trying to make difficult choices......what should we try??? Our family ordered Carrot Cake, Chocolate Raspberry Mousse, Raspberry Truffles & Dark Chocolate Salted Honey Caramels. My husband was very pleased with his choice. He said it... More

Good place to visit, 4 stars. Desert was good, overall was satisfied but wiuld not wait in a huge line for it.

Management response:

Thanks for taking the time to visit! We are always grateful when people wait in line to visit us. But, I understand if you aren't. A secret tip is to come during a weekday between 11-2 or we're usually pretty open during dinner time! Come back soon! More
