“You....Must....GO!!!”

Simply stated this place is AMAZING!!!!!! They know their chocolate!!! We decided to have some dessert after dinner in Asheville this past weekend. We had to wait in line a few minutes but in the end it was well worth it!!

“Don't miss the French Broad”
Reviewed November 27, 2012

Saved room after dinner for some chocolate; the wait is not that long and is well worth it. We met some new friends while we were standing in line!

“Super Yum!”
Reviewed November 27, 2012

Unique, locally owned business tucked on a side street. Small (another room of tables is upstairs), self-service, and sometimes has a long line... but these people really know and love chocolate! They import the chocolate themselves and make amazingly decadent desserts!

“Very good - extremely long line”
Reviewed November 26, 2012

We went there at 2 pm on a Saturday, and the line was well out the door. We went to get lunch and came back, and it was still out the door - about a 40 minute wait. When we finally got to the counter, I was disappointed that both my 1st and 2nd choices on the menu were out. Not expecting much, I got the chocolate mousse. This was possibly the best mousse I have ever had. My daughter had a chocolate cake, which was good, but not worth a 40 minute wait.

My suggestions are - 1 - be courteous; when there is a long line behind you, do not have a 5 minute conversation with the staff - just order! - 2 - If you can figure out when a non-peak time for this place is, try going then.
