“Yummmm”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2013

It is on the expensive side for some chocolate, but it is REALLY good chocolate. I got 6 random truffles, and all of them were exquisite. Their chocolate French macarons were also very good. And one cool thing is that you can see people in the back actually making the various treats.

“Good but over rated”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2013

The Chocolate lounge is way over rated for the price and wait. There are often long lines. Saturday night a group of friends and I waited outside for over 30 minutes just for the privilege of buying an overpriced slice of chocolate cake an a couple of truffles. Don't waist your time there are other places in Asheville to get dessert. Don't get me wrong, the desserts are good, just not good enough for the wait. If there is no line, go for it, have fun.

“Quick trip for dessert”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2013 via mobile

We stopped in after dinner. We got a Alice of their popular chocolate cake, a cup of milk chocolate hot chocolate, & a peanut butter thimble. We were unable to finish the cocoa or cake because it is so rich and delish. We bought a few more truffles to take home to family & friends. Worth the stop!

“Perfect place for dessert”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2013 via mobile

A friend and I went out for dinner the other night and when we were totally uninspired by our restaurant's dessert choices, we decided to go to the French Broad for dessert and I am so glad we did. This place is very popular and one often has to wait in line, but perhaps because this was a Monday evening, we were able to walk right up to the counter and placed our order. I had a sliced of caramel apple vanilla cake which was heavenly. My friend had the chocolate pot du Creme. Equally devine. Free wifi is also a nice benefit.

For a chocoholic, this place is a dream! Need I say more? I have been here everytime we go to Asheville and it hasn't disappointed me yet.
