Small little place in downtown Asheville. Go to the counter and order, have it delivered to your table.

We have been here a few times and everything I have ordered is wonderful. The location is cute but busy. I have always found a seat, but it is tight. Water is available on the wall.

Definitely get the maple truffle drink. It is an experience.

Asheville has it's fair share of chocolate shops but French Broad Chocolate Lounge is tops for chocolate lovers. From gourmet hot cocoa to chocolate mousse to brownies to truffles - you can't go wrong here. Don't be intimidated by the long lines they go fast and there is a reason for them. It is incredible!

This place was PACKED on a Saturday night. We waited in a long line to order. Took some chocolate caramels home (which were AMAZING) and stayed there for some dessert and drinks. Everything we had was amazing, particularly the hot chocolate made with coconut milk (so rich and creamy!). My only complaint was the atmosphere...felt like a Panera with the line of people and very noisy.

Had to stop here for dessert after reading the reviews. The desserts we ordered were excellent - crème brulee with cranberry compote, and a tasty, creamy chocolate mousse. We also tried the liquid chocolate bar (66%) and the liquid milk chocolate truffle. Maybe they're an acquired taste, but they were just a little too different for our liking. The liquid chocolate bar was quite dark chocolate tasting, while the liquid truffle was like drinking really thin chocolate brownie batter. Service was decent (order at a counter, and they bring your items out to you).

Holy cow, this was awesome! We had hot chooclate with homemade marshmallows & a piece of chocolate cake made with an olive oil. Didn't even get to try the actual chocolate. They are open late, so we went around 10pm on a Sunday night. Still crowded. They having seating upstairs, so if it's crowded, go up. Order at the counter & they'll bring it to you. Don't miss this stop, even just for a drink!
