Went in for an after breakfast coffee and snack. The Cubano was perfect. The chocolates we got were perfect and were enjoyed throughout our trip.

The proprietors travel to buy, then grind and process the cacao beans themselves. If you are a dark chocolate fan, you will be in Nirvana. Expensive, but worth the splurge to have some of the very finest in chocolate eating you will ever experience.

Not your average confectionary. This place has so many unique flavors and types of chocolate delights to offer: liquid drinkable chocolate, truffles, coconut macaroons and cakes. Service was great, interesting atmosphere inside.

Don't miss The French Broad Chocolate Lounge in Asheville! I had their signature drink, Liquid Truffle. A delectable selection of chocolate truffles, cakes, and other treats await in a beautiful setting!

This is a hard review to write because I like to support Asheville businesses, and I think their heart is in the right place, but it is difficult to rate them any higher based on the cost of their product. I suspect for tourists, the novelty of having a chocolate store downtown makes it easy to spend a lot of... More

It's like a chocolate dream. We had to wait in line that went outside but it was so worth it. They had delicious truffles, cookies, cakes, ice cream and even wine pairings!

We were in Asheville for the afternoon, and it was chilly out, so we stopped in for some warm drinks. We went to the to-go type side that's next to the main entrance with the long line of people waiting outside to be seated, as we just wanted some drinks. My daughter got a hot chocolate, which she drank in... More

We visit Asheville a few times a year and French Broad is always on the list of things to do. All of the chocolate is incredible: from the bars to the truffles, desserts and especially the drinking chocolate! This year, we requested a special tasting experience and were treated with enthusiasm, and thoughtfulness. Brett was engaging and entertaining with an... More
