We stopped in here for a drink and some snacks. The chocolate cocktails are a little pricey but delicious. The fries were good, but having "chocolate powder" on them is more of a gimmick as it wasn't noticeable. The onion rings were good, I didn't...More

Comfort food includes mac and cheese, waffle cheese steak, cheeseburgers. Famous for desserts and chocolate confections. Kids love it.

Stop in for a quick lunch while showing some family around the city. Place was empty and we ordered some salads. The service was really slow maybe 30 or 35 minutes to get the food, but the salads were good.

What a unique place. Reminds me of the cafes in Europe. Great service; friendly and efficient. Best of all: the absolute delicious chocolate dishes. Can't get any better.

Known worldwide as the ultimate destination for chocolate, Max Brenner is the perfect place to eat… and indulge. Fill up on Really Crunchy Mac & Cheese, a pressed waffle sandwich or our ever-popular Brenner Burger. But save room, because the main course is dessert. Experience chocolate to the fullest and enjoy hot chocolate, Choctails, fondues, sugar waffles and more. Our most iconic dishes are served in specially-designed ceramic utensils, turning chocolate consumption into a chocolate ceremony. So double dip, lick your fingers and forget to share because at Max Brenner there aren’t rules – all you have to do is really love chocolate.
