They have liquid fudge! They call it a liquid truffle but it's kind of similar. I highly recommend skipping a meal if you go for the cup'o liquid truffle. I prefer regular hot chocolate with one of their twists (cayenne, lavendar, etc.) I also must recommend a brownie or anything else chocolate. It's all good.

We always like to end our dinner evening with a bite of chocolate and the French Broad Chocolate Lounge makes the best. They have a variety of offerings from truffles to cakes to cookies. All are fresh and a great finishing touch.

Amazing place with specialty coffee, chocolates, cookies, cake and more. Lounge area is very relaxing, decor is old building with style. A must visit.

We came here with friends and all I can say is...wow!!! Sooo many choices and so hard to pick just a couple. We had liquid chocolate which was DELICIOUS! As well as truffles which were devoured soon after. The only downside is when we went it was packed- line was out the door! But with good reason. Definitely worth it... More

I have two words for you: Liquid Truffle. Ok, maybe I have a few more but seriously, you will need to invent words to describe the desserts here. 26 letters are sorely inadequate to describe the wonders your tongue will experience as you sip a liquid truffle. Go to any restaurant for dinner, but skip the dessert there and go... More

Not many choices and the choices that there were did not look good. Will not recommended this place. Staff wad kind of rude bc they were more interested in doing other things then helping the customers.

Oh my goodness the French chocolate is scrumptious and the creator is too! Really, he is such a nice guy! Glad he has realized such success!
