Disgusting

I am never going to come back to Castle Hill Max Brenner again. I have been here few times on weekends and weekdays. I had to wait for 45 min for a cup of coffee and it was served cold. They are short of staff over weekends, trying to save money when it's the most busy time of the week.

Absolutely awful. I shouldn't even bother wasting my energy on details but here goes...it was a very cold winter night, around 10.30/11pm. We stopped in for dessert...there was no indoor seating free & no queue system to get a table. It was very busy so regardless of the fact we had no table (and really wanted/needed to sit inside) one... More

Called into the shop in Manly whilst waiting for the ferry to Sydney. Enjoyed lovely coffee and probably the best Brownie we've ever had. Would recommend for drinks and cakes

Lovely place for any occasion, date night, business meeting, outing with the family, or just going by yourself. Many different chocolates to choose from that kept the whole family happy. The staff was extremely helpful and took the time to let us sample and explain everything in the cafe. If you are ever in Sydney, I suggest stopping by.

Good place to hang out when you feel thirsty for chocolate. You will feel the aroma of chocolate as soon as you enter the shop. Bit costly but worth spending for the quality of chocolate.

I often visit this cafe to pick up a hot chocolate. The quality of the chocolate they use is excellent and their chocolates are to die for. However the service is a disaster. Every time I go there there does not seem to be any manager supervising staff. The wait times for any beverage or food (even takeaway) is way... More
