GREAT FIND!! We ALL Loved It. It's primarily a coffee shop on steroids. It has interesting combinations and also Ice cream. Very popular with all ages. Easy to find scrumptious. I would be a frequent flyer here. I loved the atmosphere and corner location too

We always make FBCL a priority visit when we arrive in Asheville. We get a couple dozen gourmet truffles to share with friends and each time discover a new favorite flavor.

We stopped here on the way back to our hotel. We waited in line for about 15 minutes as they let in small groups of people. There is an employee managing who goes in. It felt like you were waiting to get into a club!...More

On our recent visit to Asheville a friend told us about this place. As chocolate lovers we had to stop and it did not disappoint. The truffle drinks were amazing and very rich. You won't want more than the small glass they serve!

Very popular and for good reason! Awesome liquid truffles in different flavors ( reminded me of the long gone chantico from Starbucks). Probably a million calories but worth it!

Chocolate everything abounds. We sampld many treats. This is an evil place. You come out weighing five pounds more. We of course had a take out order too. No Hershey or Mars bars here!!!

So delicious - espresso, Stout and ice cream! Oh my gosh I was in heaven! Cute place, I heard the lines get pretty long but we were lucky when we got there only a few people ahead of us.

While this place has all kinds of incredible chocolate goodies, the ice cream is truly exceptional. We had toasted coconut and it was really amazing!
