A unique opportunity to indulge yourself in any form of chocolate you can imagine cake, chocolates, hot chocolate, a unique delicious chocolate creme brulee.

The French Broad Chocolate Lounge has a lovely facade and nothing looks better in a display case than fantastic desserts.I took the recommendation of the counter assistant and got a slice of chocolate cake that had olive oil in it. If you like sweets that aren't too sweet the cake was perfect. To my amazement my husband got carrot cake... More

My husband and I stopped here after eating a lunch for an early dessert. We ordered some small chocolates, full size desserts, and coffee. I order the jitterbug that was similar to a Starbucks frappuccino, which was really good! I had a simple brownie and salted caramel chocolates. I love sea salt caramel chocolates, but I found these were really... More

Saw the French Board Chocolate during our tour was good but didn't go above what I would have expected. The chocolate was great just missing the element of an amazing shop..

We visited the French Broad Chocolate Lounge on a rainy Sunday afternoon and the lines were much shorter than we'd seen previously. I wasn't sure what all the fuss was about until I took a sip of my dark chocolate hot chocolate, and took a bit of my Unadulterated Carrot Cake. Oh. My. Gosh! They were both the best I've... More

We stopped here after eating lunch at White Duck Taco and it was a great place for dessert. We got ice cream, a single serving and it was a lot of ice cream. Very tasty!

My wife and I were waiting for our daughter and decided to pop in for a coffee. We immediately changed our minds and ordered cold drinks and bought some candy too. The ice cream floats were very good. The place had a very nice, casual vibe. I will be back.

The Mexican hot chocolate is a little spicy, with a touch of cinnamon and almond. The regular hot chocolate is creamy and yummy.

Very neat and tasty chocolate and coffee lounge. If you're in a rush, expect a wait since the staff works with you and your order on a personal level and they take their time to satisfy your needs. The Hazelnut Chocolate Mousse was amazing and they had several local craft beer and wine options to pair with your chocolate treat... More

During a recent trip to Asheville, I had the chance to stop at French Broad Chocolate Lounge twice. It was so good that we had to visit again on the day of our departure to get more of the delicious chocolate truffles. We went mid-day to avoid the crowd, and we were successful at getting in without too much of... More
