We hand-craft artisanal chocolates and pastries (like our Quintessential Chocolate Cake, pictured below) with a burning focus on the quality and integrity of our ingredients. To learn a little about our fanatical food philosophy, read our manifesto. And we try to do it in a way that treats people and planet with the respect they deserve. Read here about our sustainability commitments.

Quintessential Chocolate Cake

To give you a sense of what lies in store at French Broad Chocolate Lounge, consider that we have often been called, among other things, “an emporium of chocolate,” a “sacred space for chocophiles,” “chocoholic’s dream” (though we maintain that chocoholism is not real – we prefer “chocolate enthusiast”) and more mundane but helpful adjectives like “cozy,” “the best desserts I’ve ever had” (blushing), “orgasmic” (really blushing), and so on. Reviewers on TripAdvisor and Yelp often make us blush. Read reviews, but please come taste for yourself.



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 Dobrá Tea, coffee from Counter Culture Coffee, all served with the same expert care as our cakes, liquid truffle sipping chocolates, cookies, and other delectable desserts.
