Lots of Choccie choice!

Had lunch here with a friend. Delicious hot chocolate and sweet delights :) Will be back again on my next visit. Was quite busy but we didn't have to wait long.

We waited about 30 minutest (not bad at all) for a table to have chocolate that would "change your life" according to friend. Were offered a sample of cocoa covered pecans. It was life changing! Once seated, took longer than it should for our server to come by. We attempted to order drinks but they were out of Sprite (really?)... More

We had reservations for 7pm and were taken promptly even though we arrived a few minutes early. We had a table for 4 with an extra chair stuck on the end and there were people constantly bumping into my back as they walked by. I'm not sure if the building doesn't have a/c or if they just weren't using it... More

My mother and I previously ate at the Max Brenner in Philadelphia and the one in NYC is just as good! I got the veggie burger and it was so delicious. We had no complaints about our food, however our waitress was not the greatest. The food was so excellent though that I will definitely be eating at Max Brenner's... More

We were intrigued by their signature dish and were worried it would be two bites before feeling ill. But somehow, they've managed a light, fluffy and delicious combination of pizza base, chocolate, caramel, marshmallows and banana and crushed nuts - it is heavenly!

Total sugar rush from the extreme amount of treats. The whole family enjoyed the experience. Service was horrible. Immediate seating but the waiter took about 10 min to come by. Also, the menu didn't seem to be current, so the do it yourself hot chocolate was no longer available. It was shown on the online menu and the in restaurant... More

21 of us went for dinner and dessert. The food was great. I had the salmon while most had the mac and cheese. All the food was wonderful. The desserts were awesome as usual. Then we got to the bill. The waiter said he had to put it all on one bill and he would divide it up later because... More

Staying in Greenwich Village

Neighborhood Profile
Greenwich Village
Commonly known as “the Village” to New Yorkers, it was here in Greenwich Village that both 1960’s counter culture and the LGBT movement were born. Famous for its bohemian past, head to Washington Square Park to get a feel for this diverse and energetic neighborhood. You’ll find NYU students, street performers, skateboarders, kids frolicking in the fountain, and locals relaxing and playing chess. Stroll the streets to discover a mix of majestic town homes and hidden bars and restaurants that give this neighborhood an old-school residential feel. When the sun goes down, check out one of the famous jazz or comedy clubs that still packs them in every night.
