We always enjoy our experience at Max Brenner - the chocolate is good! - but this particular joint had dirty seats and tables outside. It was late afternoon when we arrived and the place was quiet: a good time to do a swift check and clean! I don't think we would go back to this one again...

This is a good chocolate cafe in Shellharbour city. It outside the Stockland centre so you're not getting barged about. A lot of free parking st various points around the site. If you like your hot chocolate rich, this is the place for you. My friend said her coffee was disappointing but my white hot chocolate was exquisite. Can also... More

Come here sometimes with my Girlfriend or with some friends. Staff are always friendly, not too expensive, always open late, food comes up quick and so do drinks. I 99% of the time, the Tutti Frutti Waffles, which is great it has Strawberries, Bananas & ice-cream with either 1 or 2 waffles drenched in chocolate! It's so filling I usually... More

For Boxing Day sales, I expected the place to be packed, but there were only a few tables filled. For what it is, it's a little over priced. Furniture is very warn, peeling, splitting.

I went yesterday after a long time avoiding Max Brenner to have an iced milk chocolate. It was served in a small glass, with water ice cubes and a bit of chocolate at the bottom, topped with disgustingly tasting mock cream for the price of $8.50. You will never ever see me again Max Brenner

The staff were really friendly and helpful - especially Sally. The food was great and the hot chocolate was very rich.

My husband and I went here for hot chocolates. The drinks were nice but you do pay a bit for them. I liked the milk hot chocolate with the crunchy waffle balls. This is a treat you don't find very often. The place was fairly empty when we visited. My only slight complaint was that the aircon was set rather... More

My coffee is always cold 😕 and the place isn't always the cleanest. I just feel they have let their standards slip since first opening. We aren't even offered table water any more. On the up side it's a great place to meet for a first date because if they are duds , you can drink the cold coffee fast... More

Visited that god-awful noise machine and assault on the senses known as Stockland today. Rather than eating cattle class in the food court, we sought out a quieter location and found ourselves in the serenity of Max Brenner. What a disappointment. Ordered hot chocolate (one Italian, one Mexican with chilli) and a macchiato with almond milk. Sadly, there was no... More
