Asheville NC: French Broad Chocolate Lounge

French Broad is on the main square in downtown Asheville. The room is full of large windows that give it an extremely sunny feel, even on a rainy day. It's also a big room, with enough space not only for a lot of tables but also what seems to be a combination coffee/wine bar.

As you can see from their cases, they cover the waterfront of chocolate: chocolate candies, baked goods, and puddings. They don't seem to be open for breakfast, which is a shame. Chocolate for breakfast is one of life's wonderful little treats.

This is their chocolate chunk mint brownie. As the name implies, it has some nice little chunks of chocolate as well as mint. It was a truly great brownie. The texture was just right, in my view: firm and shape-holding but very moist. The amount of mint was just right; the mint gives a nice buzz during and after the chew but it never overpowers the chocolate.
