French Broad Chocolate Lounge

A quintessential Asheville experience. 

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 yourself...to meet a co-worker for coffee...to 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 downtown Asheville! (Read more about our food philosophy here.) Among the sea of beautiful eating & drinking chocolate options, you will also find a carefully curated selection of sustainable wines & local beers, tea from our like-minded compadres at Dobra Tea, and fine coffee and espresso from Mountain Air Roasting, all served with the same expert care as other delectable desserts.

"When we introduce ourselves as founders of French Broad Chocolate Lounge, folks always share a similar thought: Whenever my friends and family are visiting Asheville, we absolutely have to visit French Broad Chocolate Lounge. We are so honored that people consider our place to be a destination that defines the Asheville experience. Thank you for being a part of this amazing community and sharing the Chocolate Lounge experience with your loved ones!" Dan & Jael Rattigan
