I had a really good infused chai tea, it was very aromatic and delicious, it didnt even need milk for body. my gf and I had a banana chocolate pizza - they put these amazing balls of rice puffs or something thats really crunchy on the pizza with marshmallows, fresh banana and chocolate as the "base sauce" the pizza base is thin, soft and fluffy which is ideal for this kind of dessert. It was also warm which was nice as its cold out in Canberra :D my friend had the cappucino and it was totally a max brenner style capp. instead of it having powdered chocolate on top of the froth, it had real milk chocolate zig-zagged across :D oh yeah and the service was great! they refilled my tea pot for free and without rolling their eyes at me! ;)
Going to be a great location. The site is new, with some construction still happening on the foreshore but the café itself is clean, fresh and inviting. The drinks are exactly what you expect from a Max Brenner establishment with delectable desserts like the chocolate souffle and exquisitely decadent drinks like the hot Mint Chocolate or the cold Cookieshake. Staff are friendly and knowledgeable of their products and service was fast. Head in for a relaxing afternoon on the lakeside.
My sundae came with a hair in it. And when I requested a new one to be made I was met with a roll of the eyes and given less ice cream than my original bowl. I took it back a second time and once again was met with a great deal of attitude and not a lot of customer service. I asked for a refund after I finished my low quality sundae and she made so much of a fuss over it that it took 15 minutes for a $15 refund. $1 per minute. Will never come here again. Bringing down the Kingston foreshore.
Three of us went there today. Two drinks came out and the other didnt arrive. One of the drinks was in a cup that was clearly not washed as there was tissue and discarded paper at the bottom of the drink. Furthermore, trying to get a refund for both drinks was a mission as the lady had to phone someone to find out what to do. I was left standing at the counter for a good 5 - 10min. They were pleasant enough however there could be a health department issue here
Consistent as always with other max brenners I have been to. Service was great and we were served immediately, our food arrived very quickly and our drinks were great quality. Only let down was it was a tad hard to find because the area around it is under construction and Google Maps said it was on the left, but it was actually on the right behind what looked like a block of apartments and a thai restaurant. Was a lovely experience with a great atmosphere :)
Have a hot chocolate. Theyre good. But dont order two things, or its just too much. Store is typically a bit cold inside, but honestly the main problem is just that everything is too big and rich. And I like rich things. Itd be nice if there were smaller options for less money so you could have a second thing with your drink without feeling sick afterward...
Waited for 10 minutes for a small takeaway coffee + sugar. The place was almost empty. Walked the short walk down to the lake edge to drink my coffee and watch the sunset only to discover that my over priced latte was missing the sugar and tasted burnt. Yuck! What a waste of money. Staff were friendly enough but they just lost a customer!
Unbelievable service! Went well above our expectations! Came over to check all was okay. One daughter said she didnt really like her choice (her problem) waitress offered her a replacement. We declined. Bought her an even more spectacular desert anyway. Really wasnt necessary, but very much well received!! Thank you!!!
A below-average Max Brenner. Ive been to quite a few around Australia & this franchise was definitely not one of the good ones. It seemed to be run by poorly trained teenagers with no sense of urgency or idea of restaurant cleanliness. Tip. Get your chocolate fix at Koko Black in the city!
Staff uninterested and slow,shakes and coffee were poor.Besides our table, there was only 1 other couple in the whole place, which makes the service even worse!! Funny enough we were warned, but it was the only coffee shop open there on a sunny summer Sunday.
Very disappointing. The place was under staff and extremely filthy. My mug was cracked from the top to the bottom. Our hot drinks were cold. Our fondue took over half hour to be served to us. Will not recommended to anyone.
Max Bremner is so overrated. Youre basically paying for a brand and bragging rights. Itd be good if they actually sold something that was worthy of its price. Smaller lesser known places have done better than this joint.
Horrible! Says open until 12:00am .... Arrive at 10:20pm to be told they are only serving take away coffees, no desserts. The staff were RUDE and the place was an absolute mess! Not impressed.
Over priced and underwhelming, you are paying for a brand name. The male waiter with short black hair is so rude .. no idea how he has a job, I would avoid this place
Bad customer service. A peanut ice choc drink took 20 mins. It didnt taste anything like normal. All the tables were filthy. Not worth the money.
Good for eating and drinking for someone with a sweet tooth, but on the more expensive side. Great setting at the Kingston Foreshore.
Max Brenner makes the most amazing hot chocolates. But the Max Brenner in Kingston does not have enough comfortable seating.
Nice selection of dessert drinks and dishes, great service and good location. Most importantly it is open until late.
Nice spot along the quays with a menu fit for a chocoholic! Try the chocolate cinnamon babka, it is awesome!
Food is the same as all other Max Brenner bars. However when I visited the service was subpar.
Amazing gluten free chocolate truffle ball served with vanilla ice cream & fresh strawberries!
Not very nice having a rat trap on the floor. Especially when kids start playing with it.
SLOW service. And the waiters butt crack is disgusting. Not going back to this dump.
Typically good food. Service always lacks. Long wait times even when not busy.
Not bad for dessert or coffee after dinner. Quite pricey though for what it is.
My simple favourite is just a chocolate lick with a bowl of vanilla ice cream.
Very busy- usually a good sign. Great hot chocs. Kids love the chocolate licks.
Understaffed - workers were doing their best but they seemed understaffed.

Great location and hot chocolate made with dark chocolate is delicious .
Food too sweet, not fine
sweet spot to relax enjoy a coffee and chocolate, with a nice view
The Italian thick is great, hot, creamy and full of flavours.
Was filthy and absolutely disgusting. Had to use paper cups!
If you are a chocolate lover, this is the place to go
Pretty pricey but a nice treat, service is friendly.
Italian thick hot chocolate here is the best ...
Delicious treats, exactly what you would expect.
Your usual chocolate/dessert speciality store
The harbour view is really impressive.....
Overpriced, but chocolate is high quality
Nice atmosphere, excellent chocolate
Coconut Hot Chocolate- Divine !!!!!
