I absolutely adored the chocolate mouse and sweet chocolate drink I had here. My cookie was flaky and amazeballs, too.

One of our group had been often to Asheville and had promised friends he would bring back items from this place. My wife also visted. She raved about it.

My wife and 2 kids were walking around Asheville recently and decided that we need a sweet treat for the afternoon. I asked the kids if they wanted chocolate or ice cream and they both emphatically said "Chocolate!" So we stopped in at French Broad...More

This place is to die for! The line out the door is for a great reason, you won't regret waiting. I love chocolate and have had my share of cake. This was hands down the best piece of cake I've ever had!!! Don't miss this...More

Went for desert after dinner at the recommendation of our server. I had the Buddha chocolate ice cream that was one of the best ever. The sold candy as well as different cakes. Great with an Espresso.

If you like chocolate Give it a try for a local favorite. Lots of chocolate goodies to choose from. It gets very crowded during the weekends.

Small handmade chocolate shop. The chocolates have been married with a liquor. Tasty samples as well. Stopped here on our own brewery tour, glad we did. Purchased a box of 6 chocolates, kind of pricey, certainly worth it.

We loved stopping at French Broad on our way back to our house. We would pop into the smaller door down the street to skip the line and get ice cream. We also got the beer truffles as gifts for our family back home!

We were in town this past weekend seeing Biltmore Estate, I assume you guys were closed because of weather however we were VERY disappointed. We actually came twice late on Friday and Saturday about 4:30... we were very sad to have missed you!
