The Chocolate Lounge

In Pack Square, in the heart of downtown Asheville, you can't miss the experience of entering our signature blue building. French Broad Chocolate Lounge, our beloved dessert restaurant, is the perfect place to treat meet a co-worker for celebrate your anniversary or your friend's birthday. We love creating an emotional experience for our guests, centered on chocolate and community. Filled with all manner of delicious desserts and creative confections, there really is something for everyone: from housemade ice cream, to artisan truffles and caramels, to cookies, cakes and brownies, and an entire menu of drinking chocolates. (Don't miss our signature Liquid Truffle sipping chocolate!) We've got plenty of vegan and gluten-free choices, too. And our favorite part: all of the chocolate we use for our products is made by us, in our Chocolate Factory here in Asheville!
