Max Brenner Chocolate Bar (2)
This morning I met up with friends Robert & Kat at Max Brenner, Glen Waverley. Destined not to have a chocolate overload again I opted for the banana crepes, and a coffee whilst R&K had some of the more indulgent offerings. This was probably a better choice for me. The crepes were much lighter, with just a drizzling of chocolate, and not nearly as overwhelming as the souffle and waffles I speak of in my previous review.

Banana Crepes ($13): Two perfect thin crepes, filled with banana slices, grilled and served warm with a scoop of white chocolate ice-cream and a drizzling of chocolate. Decadent, but not overwhelming.


So, it looks like Max Brenner can be enjoyed by all of us. Those who want something rich and indulgent, as well as those of us seeking a slightly less confronting option.

For all the details see my previous post.

Now that's my kind of breakfast! Bananas, chocolate, crepes, ice cream. Oooh, how decadent can you get before noon!

I like the presentation of the drinks at Max Brenner - especially the cold chocolates with the folded down lip and the hole for the straw.

Oh, and I meant to say - like the new look.

Thanks Ed. The drinks do look pretty cool, thanks to the funky glasses, but are so very rich - almost like drinking pure chocolate.
