A mainstream coffee and chocolate bar but not disappointing. The hot chocolate is perfectly textured and luxurious! It's always packed and difficult to find a clean table.

Looking forward to chocolate heaven but were very underwhelmed. Ordered Chocolate Mess to share - they had run out of cream so we got extra icecream but we could have thrown something tastier together at home. Very low budget dessert.

I am usually a big fan of Max Brenner but the service was absolutely appalling on this particular visit. We had to wait half an hour before one of the employees came out and told us they had lost our order, talk about terrible service....More

In the past i've rated Max Brenners at Melbourne Central 5 stars. The menu is in dire need of a change, as it's very much the same as 3 years ago. Service is extremely slow. My mother received her drink, finished it, had a 15...More

This place has lost it's charm and it's panache. Still a great place for a chocolate lick, but it's lost it's atmosphere. If you want some chocolate though it's nice to go to.

Really expensive and overrated. Had the ice cream sandwich, had stuff all ice cream in it. San churro is way better.

With vats of mixing chocolate reminiscent of Willy Wonka himself, Max Brenner is a chocoholics dream! There are a variety of chocolates to purchase as well as hot and cold drinks and many delicious desserts to try. Friendly and prompt service. Yummo!!

Central Business District
Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways
tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary
feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the
city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques,
throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You
never quite know what you’ll find around the next
corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and
even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air
