“Chocolate (Cioccolato, Schokolade, Chocolat, шоколад) whichever way you say it - it's Chocolate !!!”
Reviewed 19 June 2014

As a first time visitor to any Max Brenners ever I can only say that at Portside I was overwhelmed with just how many chocolate products are available ranging from handmade chocolates to the menu of pancakes, waffles and drinks and even a chocolate Pizza - all with pure dripping warm chocolate. My mouth is watering just writing about it. Our order comprised of American Hot Chocolate topped with melting marshmallows, fresh strawberries and chocolate sauce for dipping them in and Crepes - with chocolate of course. How many times can you say 'chocolate' in one paragraph?

Prices are not the most reasonable ie. a little pricey for what you get, the service was average and our dishes all came out at different times. I did love the idea of the little cuddle cups that the Hot Chocolate drinks are served in.

Outside parking at Portside is limited as this store is surrounded by other cafes, sushi and mexican offerings and the cinema so take advantage of the underground car park.

“OM NOM NOM!”
Reviewed 3 June 2014

Let me tell you something about max brenners.. it will blow your mind. Whenever i'm in the vicinity of a Max Brenner I always leave room for dessert ;).
If you can, get the fondue for two. It's a classic and is the perfect balance of chocolately, but not TOO chocolately that you question your abilities to keep your dessert in your stomach.
Waffes are good also. If you're feeling particularly spontaneous get yourself a drink. The selection is incredible.

“Pure indulgence but not extravagant”
Reviewed 3 June 2014 via mobile

This is our favourite treat when we come to Brisbane for a visit. We feel less guilty if we walk there and back from our hotel. Best time to go is late afternoon on a weekday before 6pm. Otherwise you will have to wait a while but you will not be disappointed with the food and the drinks. Yum. Our favourite indulgence for sure
