“GREAT chocolate products”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 7, 2014

I love their selection of chocolate products, they are outstanding and they have a huge variety to chose from, drinks, hot chocolate, pies, cakes, candy, ice cream, shakes, etc. The drawback is that the line is ALWAYS long and you wait forever to order. The service is also a bit slow but once you get seated and begin eating, you forget everything except how good the product really is.

“Chocolate lovers Mecca”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 7, 2014

It's not a restaurant, it's a chocolate heaven! Liquid truffle (no need to say more), hot chocolate (not your Nestle's Qwik), pot-de-creme- the best I've had; cookies, cake. It's the place to go for dessert after a restaurant meal or in the afternoon when you need a sweet-fix.. A not-to-be-missed spot in Asheville.

“Always yummy desserts”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 7, 2014

Started eating their chocolate before they opened the chocolate lounge and have been addicted ever since.
They are totally local and it a real Asheville experience as opposed to the people coming from other places to open restaurants in Asheville which reflect where they came from more than Asheville .

“CHOCOLATE”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 7, 2014

The liquid truffle is beyond decadent. For me, just make it plain and dark chocolate. Worth every calorie I drank. Two in our party had flavored hot chocolate and loved it. It is on our must take guests to list.
