Definitely a popular place, lines out the door at times! We checked it out as our sweet spot stop on the Eating Asheville food tour. Perfect choice to close out our day. Plenty of delectable choices. Tasty brownies, yummy truffles and great chocolate! It's a must try for any visit to Asheville

We walked by this place around Midnight on a Friday and saw a 40 person line out the door - we had to check it out. Came back to split the hot chocolate and it was real good. Maybe not worth an hour wait, but you should check out.

We love coming to Asheville and making a trip to the French Broad Chocolate Lounge. Choices- chocolate cream brûlée, nibbly brownies, coffee or hot chocolate. All good!!! Love to sit and enjoy our treats (with take out for later) at tables in the back. You won't find better chocolate and friendly staff anywhere!

Candies and cakes and shakes, oh my! Beautifully prepared treats. Cocoa brownies are wonderful. Great milk shakes made the way YOU want. Sit inside or out. Wonderful location on Pack Square across from the fountain.

The last time I had a cup of thick hot chocolate this good was at a sidewalk cafe in Florence, Italy. It was so comforting the first day of our rainy visit to Asheville that we came back the next day for more.

My family stopped in for ice cream and it was all we could do to stick to that plan when we saw all they had. That staff happily hooked up up with our cold treats while we drooled over the rest. Very tasty. Looking around the room as we ate there were many folks as happy as we were. Check... More

Amazing chocolates. We also had their sipping chocolate and a orange cake. The cake was good, very moist. The sipping chocolate was ok. The chocolates and caramels are superb. Pricey and hard to pick, due to the choices they have, but worth the line you will have to stand in, and the prices :)
