This place rocks! I would never visit Asheville without at least one visit. The liquid truffle is incredible. It is warm melted chocolate in a demitasse cup with a tiny spoon for eating. You could drink it, but I enjoy savoring each spoonful. My absolute favorite is the salted caramel. Yes, there are other delectable treats as well, but I... More

Some of the truffle flavors sound crazy but every one we tried was perfect. Bourbon, mulled wine, and picante were surprisingly incredible. Six truffles run about 12$, but it was a well spent experience.

As Asheville has several choclatiers, we decided to check this one out because of so many great reviews. To begin with, we asked the cashier a question about their sipping chocolates and if one was really sweet (the liquid truffle) and got a reaction like we had asked a really stupid question. The entire interaction with the staff was awkward.... More

We waited 30 minutes (with nice people), ordered the hot chocolate, truffles and stout cake, and both times we visited while there this past weekend, we found seats. I think the product is great, a little expensive, atmosphere ok, but the thing is - you can't get better truffles. You will know what I mean once you try them! Check... More

The bride and I were able to sneak out for a little escape from the toils of life, and what better place, than one dedicated to chocolate. We shared a chocolate creme brule, she had the (gf) coconut macaroon and I had the mint brownie. We both had the liquid truffles, we were wanting the maple or caramel but both... More

So I saw all the reviews and thought I have to try this place. We stand in line for about 15 minutes and while in line we figured we'd just grab something small as we were heading for dinner soon. So I order a dark hot chocolate and chocolate chip cookie and a box of truffles to go. I ate... More

I go to the Chocolate Lounge even on my way to the beach. I went to the new industrial Iocation for the first time. Same quality however I liked the small homey location. I don't know who to ask. The online price of the pot de creme and price stated on a sign in the counter states $4.50. I was... More

This is not a full-fledged review of the French Broad Chocolate Lounge, but I did want to say that the new location on Pack Square is fantastic, a huge improvement in convenience, space and amenities over the former location on South Lexington. And, to coin a phrase, the new location on Pack Square is usually packed. Talk about busy! At... More

We were expecting the most amazing dessert experience ever, after reading some reviews. This place is very good, no question, but I've honestly had better chocolates and desserts. The prices were also pretty steep, although I guess they were not so different from other artisanal chocolate places. If you happen in, I'm sure you'll enjoy it - but I wouldn't... More
