After putting out a call about a new Road Test, we invited five of our followers and one crew to try out newly landed-in-Adelaide chocolatier, Max Brenner. One of them was Adelaide’s most recent top-voted style-fash fave, Daniel Stanning. None of our Road Testers knew what they would be trying and some had not met each other before. Thrown into a new food outlet with people they mostly didn’t know, here’s what they thought about this addition to the Adelaide eat-scene and what it has to offer.
I loved it. The servings are really generous. I got the Fondue for Two thinking I could manage it on my own but I didn’t even get a quarter of the way through it. But everything tasted really beautiful. I loved the Chai. I’m a big chai drinker so I ordered that and it came in a really interesting pot where you mount it over the top of the glass and it infuses with all the chai spices and shoots it over the glass. It was a bit of theatre. It was also a really nice atmosphere and you could hear yourself talk. It was a nice relaxing vibe.
I had a wonderful experience. It’s very good to have a brand like this come and establish itself in Adelaide, especially on Rundle Street. I think what they do is great. The product is high quality. They had a good variation in the menu. I think they accommodate well for larger groups. I had the White Chocolate Cheesecake and also got extra chocolate on the side because, well, why wouldn’t you? I think this would be the sort of place that would be great for a first date. The atmosphere and the room that they’ve created is gorgeous.
I think the signature icon for Max Brenner and what represents the brand is the Hug Mug. So I definitely recommend it for hot chocolate. The way it’s served and the concept is fantastic.
It was really lovely to get together with a bunch of fashionable people and have a really good chat and some really great food. The place is really cool. Max Brenner probably has a higher quality and standard than some of the other chocolatiers. What I liked best about today was the Chocolate Cigars. I chose really well! They were amazing, just sensational. I was very happy with my choice! It wasn’t too much. The texture was right and the size was right.
The Mocha was fantastic! The Waffles were well presented, a little on the dry side. The service has been great. The atmosphere’s fantastic and the décor’s lovely in here.
I had a really good time. Everyone had fun. It’s a good atmosphere in here. I really enjoyed the Mocha. It came in a Hug Mug that kept it nice and hot. I also had the Optimistic Trio. That’s chocolate mouse, milk chocolate, dark chocolate and white chocolate. It was nice. The place has got a good location. I enjoyed it. The staff were really lovely and made helpful suggestions. I had a really good time here.
I thought it was great. Mine was really, really nice. There was so much variety. I had a lot of trouble choosing but when I heard someone say Banana Split, I went with that. We were enjoying sharing. They’re definitely sharing plates, there’s plenty there. The chocolate was delicious and I had plenty of chocolate, so that’s always good. I’d definitely come back and I’d recommend it. I didn’t get a hug mug and apparently that’s their speciality, so I want to try one of those.
The girls were very nice at the counter. Everyone was darling and the service was really good so I’ll be back here next week.
