The hard part is narrowing down your choices, but here's a secret ... there are no bad choices. But be sure to get one of the liquid chocolate drinks. Milk, dark, white ... your call. But oh soooo rich. Share your first one with someone and be sure to get a big water. The flavored sodas are refreshing too. The... More

We found this amazing place first while traveling in Costa Rica and have managed to road trip through Asheville 3 times since then to sample again. They also offer these fabulous confections online so that we can enjoy even when not rod trippin through Asheville. Not to be missed, check out the Stout with chocolate and coffee notes and ice...

We stopped here after dinner to try as many places as we could in Asheville. We had the peanut butter tort and the coconut brownie. Both were very good but not roll your eyes back good. The cappuccino was also very good. Loved the ability to sit outside and enjoy the cool country air. As dessert places go this is... More

We went here for a mid afternoon snack and were not disappointed. Two of our group had a chocolate dish from the cooler and it was way good! A third had the drinking truffle and it was most likely the best chocolate I have ever had - and I am not a huge chocolate fan. I had an iced mocha... More

The name alone would draw most of us in. There was a line out the door waiting to get in to place their order. We had four different desserts and three different coffee drinks. Everything was good but nothing was exceptional. The coffee was cool by the time it was delivered to our table. But it was good, and we... More

I enjoyed a chocolate & almond shortbread cookie. My brother had a cold sipping chocolate. It was good, but not what he was expecting. Very thick, like drinking a chocolate bar vs. Chocolate milk.

A whole lotta hype and little substance. Mediocre products. Save your $. Somehow this seems to happen a lot around Asheville. ..some new place opens with great marketing and the sheep follow. ..On the other hand, I think many of the customers don't know what a good chocolate shop should taste like...

They should name this place Chocolate Heaven! Some friends and I went in for an afternoon treat. We tried five different desserts and a couple of chocolate drinks. Oh my!! Y'all gotta go!

This was my second time visiting French Broad and I loved it just as much. I picked out a box of twelve chocolates, but people in my party chose chocolate crème brûlée, chocolate cake, and liquid truffles. I consider this a must-do for Asheville, NC. We went on a Monday night and the line was out the door. We waited... More
