The Fat Zebra

Lindt chocolate brownies anyone? The Fat Zebra in Linden is one of our top spots in the city to find chocolate treats of all kinds. However, it’s their generous chocolate brownie that always has us coming back for more. Pair these brownies with one of their famous house coffees for pure indulgence.

Patisserie de Paris

Fancy a deluxe French-inspired afternoon tea? Patisserie de Paris in Blairgowrie is famed for their delicate high tea menu, which includes their renowned chocolate brownie fingers made with Belgian Callebaut chocolate! Rich and sweet, these are a must-have on your high tea menu. Also, be sure to try out their Chocolate Cheesecake – it’s to die for!

Kaylee’s Eatery

Vegan brownie lovers, we haven’t forgotten about you. Kaylee’s Eatery in Bedfordview offers a wide variety of vegan desserts, including a decadent chocolate brownie served with your choice of vegan ice cream. If you haven’t fully committed to the vegan lifestyle yet, this may be the dessert that helps you take the final step. It’s so good, you won’t even notice the absence of dairy, plus the added nutty undertones in the ice cream complement the fudgy brownie oh so well.

George’s Bread & Co.

Our resident baking expert wholeheartedly backs the cakes and confections made by George’s Bread & Co. in Boksburg. This recently established bakery and cafe offers both brownies and blondies (white chocolate brownies, not blonde Boksburgers) at their confectionery window. You can either take these to go or pop yourself down at a table to enjoy. They have also just recently opened a branch in Benoni!

Craving a dessert that elevates the ordinary? Look no further than this Salted Caramel Chocolate Brownie from Bennigan’s Grillhouse & Bar in Bedfordview. They take it to the next level, crafting it with deep, rich Valrhona 70% dark chocolate for an intense cocoa experience. Flaky popcorn adds a playful textural surprise, while our house-made salted caramel sauce provides a luscious symphony of sweet and salty. To complete this masterpiece, they crown it with a scoop of creamy vanilla ice cream, the perfect cooling companion.

Geldhof Chocolate Shop

We couldn’t compile this list without including the Geldhof Chocolate Factory Shop in Meadowdale. The experts in Belgian chocolate, Geldhof makes an addictive double chocolate brownie. They’re not overly sweet, but are completely delicious with an abundance of rich, dark chocolate chips and a white chocolate ganache topping. Sink your teeth into one of these if you dare!
