Save room after an excellent Asheville entree to walk here for amazing dessert. Or stop by for a cup of cocoa. Take truffles home for yourself and other boxes for gifts. Wonderful chocolate!

Holy moly. I’m not a huge chocolate fan, but I fell in love with the chocolate cake and hot chocolate. It was a cold rainy night and this place hit the spot. I love that they are open late. Kid friendly, date friendly, friend friendly!...More

A cold, rainy night and Hot Chocolate and a slice of chocolate cake is a perfect recipe for love, in our humble opinion! We're so glad that you stopped by, we work hard to make the Lounge a welcoming place for all! xoxo

Wow! This place doesn’t disappoint. Everyone was friendly and the chocolate mousse was to die for. We also tried a cookies and milk shake, and the mint ice cream, both were delicious. Good prices too.
