Like Chocolate? If you visit Asheville and like chocolate you should do yourself a favor and at least stop in and smell all the goodies. If you come on a weekend get here early as there seems to be a line all the time. Enjoy.

Our waiter at the Lobster Trap (where we had dinner right around the corner) recommended this place for dessert. And boy was he right. There was a line almost out the door at 10:30pm on a Wednesday night. The line moved quickly though. Outstanding variety of coffees and desserts. Everything we had was of high quality too. You gotta check... More

Holy cow! Everything chocolate you could possibly want. Stopped in late on a Tuesday night and the place was hopping. Got a brownie and mocha cake to go. Could hardly wait to get back to the hotel to dig in. Divine!

After all the great reviews this place has received I knew I could not take a trip to Asheville without stopping in for a treat! I am so glad I did. My husband and I were still full from breakfast so we just split a piece of cake, but it was probably one of the best pieces of cake I... More

Had hot chocolate with carrot cake; both delicious as all deserts appeared to be with nice size portions. Plenty of seating upstairs for a relaxing end to the evening. Usually a line outside but only a 15 minute wait at most.

We stood in line in the rain. It was a long wait in line to get to the counter to order. There were a lot of rambunctious kids and it is pretty loud. The ambiance was like being at a McDonald's playground. They did have almond milk as an option for the hot chocolate (but it is not listed on... More

Go here drink chocolate, eat chocolate, try a dessert, take some to go ! You will not be disappointed ! If there is a line ( and there probably will be ) don't be discouraged, the staff keeps it moving, sometimes with samples and it's worth the wait - the best dark chocolate sorbet and flour less cake, and the...

The variety of chocolate items on the menu was astounding. The liquid truffles and the assortment of traditional truffles were particularly good.
