Max Brenner at Double Bay

Whilst in Double Bay I visited the local Max Brenner’s having been previously to the other shops at Paddington, Manly and in the CBD.  If you’ve never been to Max Brenner’s and love chocolate you are missing out, their mochas and selection of chocolate related food and drink are awesome.

Having said that, I would give the Double Bay store a wide berth unless you’re just getting take-away, as the table service was terrible. While the store was moderately busy it was no where near busy enough to justify the awful service. Upon arriving at the store and meeting Rhi and Richard who were already there, no staff member offered me a menu or asked if I would like a drink. Speaking of which, we all wanted water and after groing frustation with their lack of interest in us I walked to the water cups, just had my hands on them when waiter informed me that I could not take them back to the table and that he would serve us the water. Which he did – eventually.

I guess I need to have a responsible service (of water) accreditation for this?

Coincidentally, I had bought a mocha from the same store earlier in the day and the service was decent, nothing flash but ok and as I only remained inside briefly I think it was worth it in exchange for a much needed coffee.

Give up on the Double Bay store and get your Max Brenner fix at another store.
