Israeli-based chocolatier Max Brenner set up business in downtown Bethesda a few months ago. Max Brenner is a chocolate lover’s paradise. The chocolatier shop creates a world where chocolate is truly good for the soul.
Although this examiner reviews coffeehouses, she is a chocolate lover and they do serve coffee and tea drinks—which will be reviewed!
The food served is amazing. Grandma’s Cupcake is very scrumptious. The cake is moist with a deliciously sweet dark chocolate ganache and crispy chocolate pearls. It is so good that you’ll find yourself scraping the chocolate off the paper!
The pearl sugar waffles are to die for! They are the best thing on the menu. Can you imagine yourself eating these for breakfast everyday? The Munchies are two sugar waffles with ice cream and whipped cream on top. You have two ice cream flavors to choose. Chocolate syrup is served on the side in a small flask. Sprinkle on top with chocolate crispies for extra flavor and delight. This examiner had vanilla and dulce de leche ice cream. It was yummy! This is what you should order.
The macchiato is very strong. It’s strong enough to keep you alert. The lemongrass tea was soothing. The white chocolate chai tea was best. The white chocolate chai has a white chocolate ganache which makes this drink smooth and creamy. Add a warm chocolate-flavored cookie for a sweeter, divine treat. Don’t wait for winter to drink this tea!
Don’t leave Max Brenner without visiting the chocolate shop to sample some chocolate-covered nuts. The chocolate-covered pistachios have a slight, buttery taste. And the chocolate-covered pecans are toasty warm.
Drop into Max Brenner for a daily dose of chocolate. You will feel a lot better throughout the day.
