ROAD TRIP: French Broad Chocolate Lounge, Asheville NC


This cozy place combines our two favorite loves – coffee and chocolate. Nestled in downtown Asheville, French Broad Chocolate Lounge is an unassuming place that does not have a haughty arrogance but rather it a nice, relaxing place to indulge in some afternoon delight.

The display case yields choices beyond compare and the ramifications of such choices are as far removed from the diner as the caloric consequences. We opted for the Nibby Brownie and Melanie had a Peppermint Mocha while I had my usual cappuccino.IMAG1441

One thing we noticed that simply captivated us while we relaxed and enjoyed our time there was that the term “eccentric” is redefined here. I don’t mean weird but in a R.E.M. or B-52s kind of way. It’s both disturbing and delightfully welcoming and is the kind of place where you can just be yourself.

We both enjoyed the brownie but had mixed opinions on the coffee. Melanie felt it was bitter and far too strong. I thought that it was very stout but I really like strong coffee!
