thick, decadent hot chocolate
Serving almost everything chocolate, Max Brenner Chocolate Bar is the place to go and satisfy your serious chocolate craving. Be prepared to splurge, this isn’t a place with wallet-friendly prices.
I’ve only ever been to Max Brenner once and I must say, their hot chocolate made a significant impact on me. Max Brenner’s italian hot chocolate is different from the conventional hot chocolates beverages you get at Starbucks. Their hot chocolate was thick like melted chocolate and it was subtly sweet, perfect for a cold day. I also tried their churros, which was average in my opinion. I definitely had cheaper and better ones.
Overall, I would return to Max Brenner for their hot chocolate and maybe try out some other dessert.
Chocolate lovers’ dream cafe
Max Brenner is for the chocolate lovers. While their Vivocity branch is crowded on weekends, on weekdays it is usually quiet and could be a great place to study with a cup of hot chocolate, and a fondue...or two.
The location of the store is great, with full length windows providing a great view of the harbourfront, and letting in abundant natural light. There are a few outdoor seats too, but I wouldn’t recommend them on a hot afternoon because they don't get much breeze.
Serving up decadently chocolatey sweet treats, from milkshakes to fondues to waffles, you can trust Max Brenner to satisfy your sweet tooth. My personal favourite is the cookies and cream milkshake - just the right amount of luxurious. Some of the desserts are a bit too rich for my palate, although I imagine it must be heaven for other chocolate fanatics out there. I felt the portion is just right if sharing a single dessert with a friend though - that way the richness of the chocolate doesn't get too overwhelming.
In terms of ambience, there's not much worth mentioning for both the VivoCity and the Esplanade outlets - average and nothing outstanding. Nonetheless, worth a visit at least once!
Max Brenner is THE place to go if you have a severe chocolate craving to satisfy. And I repeat severe. Just like everyone else, let me spend some time raving about the chocolate fondue!! Firstly, presentation wise, it is so cute and classy. Secondly, I love having my choices - although they have different types of chocolate dips, I could DRINK the milk chocolate dip because it is just amazing! And lastly, it is YUMMY. Enough said.
No but seriously, the fondue is a must-try if you have never been to max brenner. Although I admit that the prices there aren't very wallet-friendly. And the servings are rather small. For example, the fondue that I had is probably best shared by 2 people. But to split the cost by 2, it is still rather pricey. However the ambience is rather good with its warm lighting and dark furniture, the outlet at vivocity makes for a very cosy place to enjoy such sinful pleasures ;)
As I've mentioned, this place is meant for chocolate lovers therefore do note that the drinks are really chocolatey, no kidding. A whole glass of it is going to fill you right up and you're going to get a sugar rush blast! So do remember to pace your drink and of course drink LOTS of water lest your throat suffers the side effects of indulgence!
Chocolate Fondue mama mia
I am a big fan of all sweet treats and I have to say, It is a must for all chocolate lovers to visit Max Brenner's chocolate bar. The outlet has nice decorations, I find that eating chocolate whilst being surrounded by cocoa beans depicts that the chocolate bar lives up to its name of being a 'chocolate haven'
The chocolate fondue is a must have for all chocolate connoisseurs for it truly is a great experience on its own. Imagine dipping marshmallows into warm chocolate and tasting a whole new world of richness!
Though I find that the stuff here are generally pricey, it is most definitely worth the cost.
Rich - both in quality and price
I am one who has a sweet tooth. Max Brenner Chocolate Bar would be my all-time favourite place to nom on after a meal, if it wasn't for the abysmally high prices they charge here.
I'm sorry, but I don't see how a simple shake can cost more than $10. Although quality is no doubt there - an ex used to work there on vacations, and she often brought me samples - but in my opinion, nothing there warrants the price tag. Sadly, I am a sucker for good chocolate desserts, and I would always love to bring a date here after a good night out, emptying my wallets out with no regrets.
If prices drop by $2, it would be more worthwhile. Other than that, this is truly a great place for one to satiate his or her craving for chocolate.
For chocolate lovers only
I am not a chocolate fan. But since my friends wanted to have some desserts, we decided to head to Max Brenner Chocolate Bar at Esplanade. Max Brenner is definitely a chocolate haven for all chocolate lovers. They have ice creams, chocolate drinks, cakes, practically every kind of chocolate dessert that you can think of.
I shared a chocolate fondue with churros with some friends. We were given a choice of white chocolate, milk chocolate and dark chocolate to choose for our fondue. We decided on the milk and dark chocolate. The churros were warm, crispy and had generous amounts of cinnamon sugar on it, which was nice! However, the price is a little pricey considering it to be just an after meal dessert.
Overall, the ambience of the cafe is rather laid back and pleasant. Definitely a good recommendation to chocolate lovers who would like to spend a lazy afternoon with a cup of hot chocolate and a good book.
For the chocolate lovers~
I have only been to Max Brenner Chocolate Bar once at Vivo City a couple of years ago, but till this day, I can clearly remember the delightful chocolatey experience I had back then. The outlet at Vivo is rather small and can be cramp if there is too many people, but thankfully during the time I went, there was hardly anyone there.
Ordered their marshmallow crepe, and it was AMAZING. Fell in love with it at first sight, and well in love with it further at first bite! Hot gooey melted marshmallows wrapped with a crepe, and decorated with chocolate sauce and gummy bears, appealing and irresistible. Can never forget the taste, and have even tried to recreate my own marshmallow crepe at home, but I fail so badly at cooking, and the outcome was bad.
Unfortunately, when I went to Vivo City recently, I went to take a look at Max Brenner's menu and realized that the marshmallow crepe dish was GONE. Thank goodness I got to try it once, but I am sad that it is no longer in the menu. I guess that this will open more doors to their other dishes, and I definitely wanna give their drinks a try next time I visit Max Brenner Chocolate Bar.
I will have to warn you that the prices are killer. Majority of their items cost more than $10, and their drinks cost around $6 and up, if I remember correctly. But there is nothing wrong with treating yourself to a plateful of chocolatey awesomeness every once in a while, right? ;)
Everyone deserves a good treat. A good chocolate treat. What’s a better place than Max Brenner for all the chocolate lovers out there.
Max Brenner has one of the most delicious waffles in Singapore and it MAY be one of the most expensive waffles as well. If you happen to pop by Max Brenner and yet has no cravings for waffles, I suggest you try their hot chocolate. They serve excellent hot chocolate which are rich, thick and smooth. Unlike most places which serve hot chocolate that tastes like hot milo. The hot chocolate is served in this hug mug which looks extremely cute. There are also marshmellows served on top of the hot chocolate. Ahhh.... extremely gratifying on a cold rainy day.
We visited the outlet at Vivocity which is smack right beside Gelare. We contemplated for a while before we decided on forgoing the Tuesday half price promotion at Gelare and ended up spending about twice the amount we would spend in Gelare. In terms of the texture of the waffles, it is thick and flffy, hot and yummy. It took quite some time for the waffles to arrive. Unlike places like gelare and udders, the waffles at Max Brenner are served with caramel and nuts. It is simply delectable.
Max Brenner has got to be the best chocolate bar I've been to! With it's fun-loving concept, the stores are cosy and the menus colourful, making you excited to try your favourite treat since childhood.
Being a little on the pricier side, my friend and I shared the Smores dessert as well as a cup of dark hot chocolate. The Smores set came with chocolate biscuits, caramel, bananas, marshmallows and chocolate buttons, but these aren't just any regular combination you find elsewhere. The ingredients blended so well together to tantalize your tastebuds, making your beg for more. As for the hot chocolate, it was so rich and creamy we were simply blown away.
Their chocolate are top-notch, and that, makes all the difference.
