Looking for a good chocolatiere

I have a friend that has recently moved and is going through chocolate withdrawal. She's used to buying very good quality chocolate from a Belgian chocolatiere and I would love to surprise her with some chocolates from a place that is nearby.

Can anyone recommend any places in the Greenville area? Or perhaps even in Charleston or Atlanta? Or is Godiva my best bet? Thank you in advance!

  1. Chocolate Fetish in Asheville is good. There's a place called Chocolate lounge, also in Asheville that many people like. I don't think their truffles are as good as Chocolate Fetish, but their dark ch.salt caramels are very good. Greenville has nothing , AFAIK, but I'll be curious to see if anyone finds one for you!

    1. Which state? There are a number of Greenvilles!

        1. The assorted chocolate truffles at River Street Sweets (Charleston, SC) are a nice treat, although I'm not sure that they are any better than Godiva. I also think that their chocolate pralines are remarkable - more of a southern favorite than something you would expect from a Belgian chocolatiere.

          1. Thanks for the advice everyone!
