This is kind of a “gourmet “ chic place in downtown Asheville. Some days and hours the line is out the door. You look at the chocolate concoctions in the cases and order, pay, and either sit at a table if you can find one,...More

From ice cream to cakes to unique hot chocolate, this place is has something for everyone. Prices aren’t bad either. I had the Vegan chocolate cake. The only way you would know it was Vegan was by the tag. Great cake.

My boyfriend and I came here for the second time, Friday night after the drum circle. There was a bit of a wait but really worth it. They have the best chocolate ice cream you will ever eat in town.
