This month, if it hasn’t already, is about to get cray-zay. We all know how the holiday season suddenly makes everyone’s schedules fill up, so working in quick visits with your friends in the neighborhoods you’re already shopping, running errands in, etc. is essential. My girlfriends and I recently took a break from our busy city lives to pop in and enjoy drinks, dinner & dessert at Max Brenner (1500 Walnut Street).
We started with some tasty chocolate cocktails. The presentation was amazing, but, as you can imagine, pretty sweet & filling! If you’re planning on having food + dessert, I’d suggest ordering one. But if drinks are your end destination, bring ’em on, lady!
The food was super yummy and creative. We all brought half of our meal home, so Max Brenner is the perfect spot if you’re heading back to your apartment or even out of town after – gotta keep those leftovers cold! The presentation again was really unique, and I was so glad I ordered the Philly Cheesesteak Waffle Sandwich (obviously) from their specials menu. It was amazing.
By the time we got to dessert, we were so. full., but when you’re there, you just gotta, right? We split an Oreo milkshake, and this lil chocolate pizza number. Max Brenner does his chocolate darn well. I will leave it at that.
Our time at Max Brenner was a much welcomed, warm, cozy & chocolatey break from the hustle that is Center City in December. If you’re bopping around Rittenhouse this month, give them a try – your sweet tooth will thank you!
