Wow! This is so much more than a "candy store," as someone had inaccurately described this restaurant. It is a lounge where attention is focused upon chocolate desserts, candies, drinks. Staff were knowledgeable and patient. The line was long but moved quickly. We savored a dark chocolate brownie with glasses of red wine. Very relaxing and delicious.

Perfection....everything about this place is perfection. Take the tour of their factory on Buxton Ave., it is totally worth $10.

Try it. The creme brûlée is worth the trip alone. Also got the torte, but haven't tried it yet. Certainly looking forward to it!! Ambience is great too. Limited seating.

After dinner in downtown Ashville and not wanting to return to our room at the Biltmore, we asked our waiter to direct us to a coffee shop. Little did we know we were about to enter "Chocolate Heaven"! At 10:00 pm, the place was grooving with live music which made palpable our 15 minute wait.The menu consists of predictable coffee shop fare such as lattes, espressos, and teas, along with elegant cakes, parfaits, and fancy homemade cookies. My daughter ordered their signature drinks, a small cup of warm, drinking chocolate, which is thicker and richer than hot chocolate and proved to be the perfect companion in which to dunk our shortbread cookies. So delectable that it was sinful! I opted for a cup of dark hot chocolate which arrived steaming hot, a respite on that chilly, rainy evening. There is limited seating on the first floor where you order, but once you venture upstairs, there are several large rooms filled with cozy wooden tables and chairs. The waitstaff deliver your order upstairs and it is easy to while away the evening surrounded by the aroma of all things chocolate.You cannot say you have been to Ashville unless you have indulged your chocolate addiction. As we say in my house, chocolate is another food group with a daily requirement that must be satisfied!

Truffles, trifles, tarts, cakes, brownies, cookies, and spoon desserts; drinking chocolate, beer, and wine: Everything is wonderful at the French Broad Chocolate Lounge. Prepare for a wait, but the crowd is always pleasant, and there's live music on the weekends. Why are you still reading this? Go now!
