I love this little café, it never disappoints. The food is always delicious. It is not cheap, but not overpriced either in my opinion. It is wonderful eating at this venue, the staff are all so pleasant and welcoming and make sure you have a great experience in their restaurant. One of my fav's, I'll visit again.....

I dropped into Max's Corner for Sunday brunch. The food was plentiful and the prices were reasonable. They also served a good long macchiato, which is unusual, as most cafes still don't know how to make a good long mac. Max's Corner is at the corner of Mt Alexander Road and Leake St, Essendon. It's part of the Keilor Road... More

Been to Max's a couple of times. Fantastic food and great service. The coffee is great. If you are looking for breakfast lunch or dinner the menu covers it all. Worth going to Max's for sure.

Have been here a few times now and the food and service never disappoints! We always come for an early dinner during the weeknight and it's always peaceful and relaxing. Will definitely recommend this place to others!

Few little glitches in the initial seating but after that was sorted everything went well. Starters were outstanding - we shared saganaki, grilled prawns and seared scallops- delicious Mains were a little slow to be served but once they arrived at our table we all enjoyed them . Fresh and full of flavour - overall a very good standard. Service... More

Parked right outside this place and got a table for two no problem. Had the Max's burger for lunch, came with chips. Both were absolutely delicious!! Sat outside as it was a beautiful spring day (in the non smoking section, how good was that). Staff and service were excellent. Recommended.

We went to Max's for breakfast. The food is so delicious and fresh. The fruit salad was brilliant, staff very attentive. This cafe is loud, all the chatting echoes. We enjoyed ourselves and will be back. Kids menu is great, breakfast pancakes comes with a side serve of fruit .... Impressed!

This vibrant cafe serves a wide, easy to select, menu to cater for all tastes. Service is attentive and responsive without being overly fussy. Good coffee completes a hearty breakfast or generous main meal. Can only recommend.
