At the Union Square emporium, chocolate-filled pipes weave around the ceiling and decadent confections sit atop tightly packed tables. With a menu that instructs guests to "Get addicted, be happy," this isn't a place for self-control. Expect chocolate to show up in some unexpected places, like waffle fries dusted with chili and cocoa powder and a dessert pizza made to share. The whimsical kids' menu includes such delicacies as the Chocolate Oatmeal Trophy and the Melting Marshmallow Crepe (with gummy bears, vanilla ice cream and, of course, more chocolate). Sweet tooths, rejoice!

I love Max Brenner. I never have to wait more than 20mins for a table and you can make reservations in advance. I don’t really like their savory items, but love their desserts. This place is right across a movie theater, so after watching a movie you can go hang out here and eat dessert.
Officially on my favorite brunch places in New York. While they specialize in chocolate, it's actually quite easy to make a reservation or wait about 20 min for a table on the busiest of times for brunch. I recommend the waffles to share and their burgers are quite filling.
For those with a sweet tooth Max Brenners is the place for you. They serve hot and cold food which is great, but, there really is only one reason why people come here...CHOCOLATE! Mountains of the stuff! It's not Hershey, don’t panic! Its actually very good! There are a bunch of these restaurants dotted around Manhattan. I do recommend the store near Union Square which is a really funky area of Manhattan that has a lot of artists/students around so you can have a walk around there to work of your food baby. I still wake up in the middle of the night pining for the delicious melted chocolate that graced my lips whilst here. Women will love it here. I promise! Please try the chocolate fondue! It is so good!
