Best Attractions & Activities: After the extraordinary success of French Broad Chocolate Lounge, which owners Jael and Dan Rattigan opened in 2006, it hardly seems surprising to watch this delicious empire grow even further. Located downtown on Buxton Avenue, this unique bean-to-bar chocolate factory and tasting room features weekend tours as well as classes and courses. Those coming in to taste and shop will find an expansive offering of house made chocolates, ice cream, take-out desserts and a new chocolate bar library, which features 150 different craft chocolate bars. This craft chocolate operation imports cacao beans from all over the world and then grinds, refines and tempers until their famed chocolate delights emerge.
