After learning their trade in Costa Rica, Jael and Dan Rattigan set up shop in Asheville. At this sacred space for chocophiles, you can find hand-crafted artisanal chocolate truffles, salted caramels, from-scratch pastries and cakes, all featuring superb local and organic ingredients. Lounge on the leather couch, admire local art, and sip a glass of Pinot Noir paired with their quintessential chocolate cake. Or see how perfectly a creamy Pisgah Stout, pairs with their dark, dense cacao nib brownie. Sit back & enjoy a Liquid Truffle, their signature hot sipping chocolate, the likes of which you'll find in Europe's finest chocolate houses. They serve them in flavors like Indian Kulfi (with rose, pistachio & cardamom), Masala Chai, and Cayenne & Cinnamon. You'll find a quiet space for meetings during the day, with complimentary wireless internet and plenty of seating. When the sun sets, the Chocolate Lounge becomes a hot spot - meet your friends for a bottle of wine and something sweet.
