Recently the boyfriend and I wandered in to town with a sweet tooth and a want to try somewhere new. That's when we decided to give The Brownie Bar a visit. the Brownie Bar is in Eldon Square, tucked away near the start of Eldon Gardens. I've had a friend work with them before (for dissertation type things) and he said it was amazing. My mother-in-law came home one day with a cookie that had a brownie center (sounds too good to be true, I know) which I got a taste and it confirmed the amazing things I'd heard.
On this occasion I opted for a Creme Egg Brownie (it was just after Easter so the diet was still out the window) and a Vanilla milkshake. The milkshake was okay. It was sweet vanilla and made with ice cream so there was a nice texture too it, slightly thicker than milk. It didn't have enough ice cream for my liking (you know, like American style milkshakes where you can barely move the straw) but this was still good. They also do hot drinks, Matthew had the Americano which he enjoyed but since I'm not much of a coffee drinker I can't tell you anything more about it really.
This is The Brownie Bar so I know what you're waiting for; the show stopper - The Creme Egg Brownie! Guys, this beauty of a brownie was so gooey I couldn't even pick it up to get an awesome photograph, I had to rip in to the bag to get this wonderful treat. Matthew had a Pecan and Maple brownie which he loved but I didn't get a chance to try (not a huge fan of pecan). My Creme Egg was a lot gooey-er than his so I'm wondering if there was Creme Egg in the brownie mix too. I'm sure I tasted it, but I don't want to tell you it is just in case. Either way, I had the most fantastic brownie, like, I'd died and gone to Creme Egg heaven. So there's that. As you can see they have a great inventive range of brownies. Other flavours and types I noted because I almost got them: Nutella, Malteaser, S'mores as well as Blondies too.
I discovered you can order brownies online with them (score!) which are nice little bundles of 6 for £10 + £4 delivery. It's here I should note that we paid £8.20 for two brownies and two drinks (I think my milkshake was £3 so made up quite a bit of that bill) which is not a bad price for a little sugar-rush pick me up during shopping trips. As well as at their bar in Eldon Garden where we went, you can also get these delightful brownies in a bunch of other locations as well!
