Great chocolate

Excellent service, great hot chocolate and a nice atmosphere. We were double charged for one drink but when we pointed this out they were very apologetic and happily provided a refund. Human error is unavoidable and this in no way changes my view of the cafe. We will be returning again on our... read more

Never had babka in my life but if it was good enough to feature in a Seinfeld episode I knew it would be good - and it was amazing but definitely need someone to share it with! Hot chocolates and cappucinos are great too. Also recommend the brownie which they will heat up for you : )

It was our first time visiting Max Brenner's upon recommendation by a friend and wow it was amazing. We had to have a hot chocolate and I tried a souffle also. They were devine! Price was a bit exy but worth it for a one off experience. We didn't buy anything in the shop as it was way overpriced. Glad... More

Went here yesterday and while the chocolate was great as always the two people behind the counter were so unhappy and couldn't even smile. They were polite, but. But it was disappointing that they looked like... More

Our relations took us there for our anniversary treat. We have never seen anything like this place, wish UK had one. You can really indulge yourself in here and the price is reasonable when you think of the portion size. Too much to choose from but the staff are very knowledgeable so they can help you out. Seats are not... More
