I have been going to Max Brenner for years. Since 2006, in fact. I have been going to Max Brenner ever since the whipped chocolate frappes were $6, and ever since the Italian thick chocolates were $5. Nowadays, I go almost every week, so at the very least, I am a very dedicated customer.
If you are a chocolate connoisseur and haven't tried Max Brenner, you definitely should. I know that in the last few years, chocolate cafes have become all the rage: just to name a few there is now the Lindt Chocolat Café, the Guylian Belgian Chocolate Café, and there is Chocolateria San Churro. However, if you haven't tried Max Brenner, you are definitely missing out. The chocolate is very sweet, to be sure, but it is also very indulgent and addictive. And with over 10 stores around Sydney, you have no excuse not to go.
I used to like the hot and sweet Italian thick chocolate (milk); now I like the whipped chocolate frappe (dark and very, very little ice). In fact, I am so picky about there being very little ice in my frappe that it has caused me a lot of trouble. Some Max Brenner stores are very attentive as to the personal preferences of their customers, whereas others are less so. If you are looking to try Max Brenner, or if you are looking for the best store, I highly recommend the Max Brenner in Newtown.
Newtown has a reputation for being unfailingly respectful of their customers, and the Max Brenner in Newtown (even though it is a chain) is no different. If you like your drinks a special way, the Max Brenner in Newtown will definitely deliver.
